I work for the sheffield office and sheridan is my boss i get on with all the staff in Sheffield office the staff are friendly and they Are all approachable and contactable anytime you cant get hold who ever is in charge of you out of hours but they id always someone that is available 24 hours a day there as always been someone at the other end of the phone when need.
I like the flexibility and the fact that you can be available and then life changes and appointments come up but thats is good

Usually get hours every week not very often i dont get my hours work as many or as little as you want

Love working for the agency. Very helpful managers when you need help. Very professional and enough hours, the pay is decent so can't complain. The only downside is when you don't gt enough shifts but that happens rarely.

I have worked with Local Care Force for the past 3 years and can honestly say that I have never been happier in a work place.
The management are supportive and hold a wealth of knowledge about the sector. They really do help you to succeed and achieve your goals. The management are generous and often organise team building events for all staff, which shows us that we are appreciated and boosts staff moral. Local Care force really are a big, crazy family and I am happy to be a part of it!

If you want flexibility, choice and lots of work. This is the company to work for. As a nurse you can choose your area of work. Do as little or as much as you wish to work. Excellent salary and weekly pay. The staff look after you and give you the choice to work in whatever field you want. I have worked for them for two years and I would go nowhere else. Excellent in house training all free.

Good team to work with, could be more organized in the booking of support workers and sometimes they are a bit last minute with booking and extending hours.

don't look after there dedicated staff set new staff on and they end up with the shifts and the ones who have been with them a while or for years loose out their Don't get supervisions or extra training in other subjects just mandatory which you don't get paid for when its your day off, pay not so good for some places you work at it's a set wage weather it be a a nice place to go or somewere that is challenging no extra money for weekends.good and bad points forLCF

Working for this company is nothing but a joy.
If you are looking for a company to guide you and push you to advance your career, then this is a great company to work for.

This company really pushes for a work life balance.

I started out here 5 years ago as a Care worker New to Care, and I am now a nursing coordinator.

managers don't understand you and don't care about you as long as you overwork.
its meant to be a agancy when you pick and choice when you want to work but staff dont seem to understand that and are rude when you have to cancel a shift.

the hardest part of the job is going to new palce that are haorribe and you just get a treat like poo.

most enjoyable was training. the team was nice but its not worth it.
Cons
