Support Worker/Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Coventry, West Midlands – 25 June 2019
No contract, no confirmation of employment, management are useless keep fobbing you off, training good, no certificates etc until you been at senad for 6 months. Stated 35 hours but didnt get that stated at interview cant do 12 hour shifts too long and have a family but they had me down as that and waking night shift. Nothing is set in stone avoid avoid avoid this company
Long hours pay for own lunches, drinks, petrol, mileage, car parks. can claim back but not alot

Hours are long and can leave you feeling burnt out and taken advantage of. What really shocked me was the ineptitude and duplicity of management. I have witnessed managers suggest sending new members of staff on shift without a shadow and also inventing reasons to report people for safeguarding concerns if they don't like you. Join if you want to Risk your DBS.

The training given by SENAD was good and all of the clients were wonderful people to work with. The company on a whole was poorly managed, long hours that are not appreciated. Unfortunately SENAD seemed to employ anyone and everyone which made some shifts seem like you was working with a bunch of monkeys.

SENAD Community Coventry are a great place to work. They invest in all there staff and have achieved a outstanding rating from CQC. This is a company that puts its service users and staff first with an open culture that addresses all issues promptly. Fantastic place.

I work in the coventry team and can honestly say I’ve never worked with a more supportive group of people, I had never worked in this industry before and have been supported from my very first day. The job gives you that feeling of satisfaction you rarely find, it’s not your regular stereotypical care work, you are supporting people to build the skills to excel - it’s so rewarding.
Care Assistant (Former Employee) – England – 29 June 2017
Would give zero if I could. After getting no payment for training or travelling which was quite far. Then told it was £7ph and wouldn't get £8 ph til after probation was a disgusting thing to do. They lie right from the start saying I would be working in schools which in fact was with people with disabilities and elderly didn't mind that but that wasn't what I wanted to do.. I joined to help children with special needs but another lie. So I would do alot of research before working for Senad.

Working for this company has been an eye opener into the care industry! I believe that we really do help make people's lives easier and more independent by doing our jobs! It helps people with difficulty living alone to live a life that they should be able to live!! It has been such a fantastic experience and I will be sad to leave

I felt let down by the company due to i felt like i was being targeted by management. but when i was on shift i enjoyed the job i had a problem with a service user, but Senad understood my concern and allowed me to continue working but took me off the service user in question.
