Good but its closing down so no job security
Support Worker (Former Employee) – Can’t say – 30 May 2018
Good place to work, pension, meals provided, good holidays good wage. Much better than most private sector jobs. The training is only in house they won’t fund NVQs but they train you what you need to do the job. Working with offenders with learning disabilities can have its challenges but as long as you are friendly, respectful, professional and positive in your approach you should have no issues. Not every staff I worked with had this approach, some felt they needed to always show the patients they were ‘in charge’ and usually ended up being attacked often by the patients with this approach. Shame it is closing down I really enjoyed my time there apart from a few bad apples (support staff) but the most part a good team very supportive of each other. Managers fine, no problems with them.
Pension, holidays, wage above average
Long shifts, some support staff
