Support, more staff, better rota organisation, feeling valued and listened to. All the things that should be standard in this line of work

Answered

I’d change management team, and have regular staff meetings (all staff). Promote a more positive work environment

Answered

I feel very unsure especially now as they have brought in a No Smoking policy (ridiculous I know) to all employees working.

Answered

It's really straightforward. They normally give an information session followed by a competency based interview looking at your experience and values

Dont be off sick whatever you do, back to work interviews then a meeting with service manager, made to feel like s***e for being off, no support or even asking if you ok to return to work.
You get put on stages 1,2 or 3 and its basically intimidating you not to take sick days off.

Answered

If your a yes man then this is the place for you. Bullying and intimidation tactics used regularly

Answered

The hours can be long and the job is demanding but also rewarding.

Answered

Yes, it's easy to request a change to your hours if needed. Managers are normally good at working with staff to find informal arrangements to rotas that work for everyone, but can also be put in place formally if needed e.g. for childcare
