Support Worker (Current Employee) – Westcliff – 23 January 2018
This company tends to take on loads of new staff when previous staff are requested more hours. They do not communicate well within the office and you can often receive two different calls by staff regarding the same shift to cover. I have even had phone calls when on holiday!
The clients are what make the job! Hours are flexible (when they have them). Being a student, I am able to have the days of for my studies.
Pays ok. Roughly between 7.50-8 pounds for most clients, although specialist clients are up to 11 pounds. It's hard to get into specialist clients as these have regular staff and it's hard to get the training you need when requesting from the office.
This type of job is more of a stepping stone or way to build skills of support working. Not the best job to build a career as you'll end up working every day of the week and doing nights to make up rent! The average worker will earn approx 500 pounds a week doing long shifts, day and night every day of the week if you can find the hours.
Your best to be car driver with appropriate insurance to take clients out to get more shifts.
