I enjoyed working here, just feel like it's time for a change. I want to be home at night instead of working till midnight. All the staff and customers are friendly

clueless management when it comes to modern day work practices
whole company needs updating, still writing pages of service users day to day personal care and activities using up time on paperwork when they could be spending it with individuals.No team spirit.Managers are rusty and lacking in people skills and not interested in employees using their own initiatives.They use staff supervisions not as a learning curve but as a threat to your continuous employment.Needs an injection of youth as majority of staff are pensionable age. or near it, No fun and a great place to work if your happy to give up your personality.

Causal Only Post
I only worked when I was asked to as a Casual Care Assistant. It was a great experience because I learnt to work with the elderly who had mixed dementia. Learning how help them was the key factor is this post. Feeding them and taking them to the Bathroom.

Most enjoyable was entertaining them in the afternoon, playing bingo and other games. Highly recommend them.

Great work experience for Project Search
As part of Project Search, through Preston's College, I worked at County Hall on a Supported Internship From September 2019 - June 2020. My duties Included Checking information on computers, scanning in missed information, invoicing, working in the mailroom, delivering post to various departments. I enjoyed all of my varied duties and all of the staff were lovely to work with. Overall, a very positive experience and would really have liked the opportunity of permanent employment at LCC.

Corrupt and filled with unfair favouritism
Badly managed and unfairly run. Avoid.
The pay is poor and others doing the sane job but earning more.

Opportunities for progression limited to favourites or if you are related to a team manager or above
Pros
None

demanding but rewarding
The school holidays may sound alluring, but they are earned from long weeks with no flexibility of annual leave. Must find a school with the same educational philosophy as your own to make the job doable

Fast paced environment
During my time at LCC I found my workmates were helpful and supportive of each other, however the management team was often observed to be lacking. Often people reported the management tactics to be of a bullying nature. However, this was not true of all managers, some were very helpful and supportive.

Fun work place
Fun place to work with lots of community and indoor activities ranging from talking groups and cooking groups to swimming and trips out. You also needed to provide care for individuals who needed it and some have care needs more than others, this includes personal care, personal hygiene and help getting about

Good workplace but boring
If you generally love a low paced workplace then this job is for you, but if your used to fast paced then you will get bored rather easily. Interviews are harder than the actual job.
