Still Loving the Care Work
Support Worker/Carer (Current Employee) – Swansea, Swansea – 20 May 2019
I've worked for a few other companies before this and its the best one yet, i knew that the days would be long, as is all care work, I like that I get support throughout the day, if i have a query, there's always someone at the end of the phone for me to check with or a colleague i can ask.
Typical morning I start at 7ish, follow the rota given, quite a bit of travelling, but not too much that i moan about it; Afternoons start at 3pm ish, and Im always home (way) before 11.
Hardest part of the job is getting me out of bed in the mornings, once im with the service users, the days go so fast; the most enjoyable part of the job is knowing at the end of each day i have made a good difference for the people I help
I only wanted part time as i have a 6 year old at home, and ive found the staff very friendly and fair about giving me the hours i have asked for, the more effort i am willing to put into the job, the more i seem to be getting from it
I understand that this company went through a bad patch some time back with its rep, but they have had new management and procedures that have sorted those things out, and I haven't come across any unsolvable problems working here; I would recommend working with the South Wales Branch, lovely team.
The smiles you get from service users first, and good pay from the company
Working long days - but this is optional
