Embarrassed and at times ashamed due to their reputation and treatment of tenants and staff
Dreadful. They state flexible working but that simply does not happen. You are made to take a one hour lunch break but in all honesty you end up working through it because of the unmanageable work load and fear of repercussions from the operations manager. You frequently need to stay late too but this is deemed as a personal choice so you do not get paid for overtime or accrue time off in leiu. If you complain about the work load you are questioned about your capability to do the role. You cant win.
Does Embrace Group require pre-employment background checks? What kind of background check does Embrace Group do and how long does it take to complete?
Yes they conduct thorough pre-employment checks including criminal convictions (DBS/PVG) and if there are convictions, a risk assessment will be conducted if there is a conviction to determine whether the offer should be withdrawn. They also obtain references, employment history and other checks. They don't take long if you complete the forms properly and soon after getting them and if you contact the referees
It's all hot air. They do not embrace diversity or disability. You are treated like the weakest link and if anything the work they give you is more challenging as if to make you question your own ability to do the job. Your confidence is battered and you end up leaving because you are made to feel like a failure because you are pushed too hard, bullied and discriminated against.
Sanctuary state flexible working but this is absolute nonsense, particularly in housing.
What is the paid holiday policy like at Sanctuary Group? How many days do you get per year?
You don't get holidays in days per say, its worked out in hours. so where I am if you work a 24 hour contract then you get 168 hours of paid holiday entitlement.
