Nice job, lovely people, good management
Support Worker (Current Employee) – Canterbury, Kent – 8 January 2017
I really enjoy this job. Every employee I've worked with is absolutely lovely, very helpful and can't do enough to help when you're new. I only started in July 2016 and already feel like I'm becoming part of the team.
The manager and assistant manager are great too. Get things done on time, especially the rota (weeks and weeks in advance) and accommodate to your needs. As well as being very approachable and easy to get along with.
You will support individuals with personal care, cleaning of their flat, preparing meals, taking them shopping, driving and attending their appointments or meetings with them and more.
You don't have set breaks necessarily, however there is always time to sit down and relax, eat your breakfast or lunch or dinner and use the bathroom whenever you need to.
It's not a hard job and you get treated well by all employers and employees. Some aspects of the job can be demanding e.g. supporting individuals with complex needs such as autism, however it is still a rewarding job being able to support them to be as happy and independent as possible.
If you are caring by nature and genuinely want to help individuals in need of support, and get along well with most people, then it is an ideal place to work. Honestly can't think of a negative thing to say about it!
Great team, efficient managers, lovely environment
