We do 70:30 till 22:30 shifts then a sleep and go home the next day, unless we are doing a half shift which can mean staying on till 15:00 or coming on at 15:00 and doing the rest of the shift and doing 2 sleeps in a row. This is fine with me as I only have a short walk to work. But we often get 2/3 days off after this, we also have to work weekends.
Our team leader is lovely and so is our manager, and can be flexible if we need a day off, or need to attend appointments.
We have a discount site that can mean up to8% of some shopping.
The hardest parts of the job are the personal care for our clients, and the long hours. For basic pay.
Most enjoyable part seeing our clients happy and enjoying the activities we do with them.
