I worked at st Monica's Sanford Sherwood for 3 years. best place in care. equipped home. but hard workload as demand is high for nursing care. good progression opportunities.
holiday pay and sick pay ( after a year ), saveing on shopping and health insurance benifits
Worked for 4 years at Cote Lane, colleagues and residents are lovely, but management is dire. They treat their employees very poorly. It’s a little like being in a prison, they tell you how it’s going to be, and even if you find things difficult, they don’t care. Poorly managed and not much ‘care’ amongst colleagues and employees. Management is full of friends and family too, and if your face doesn’t fit, you’re bullied out.
Poor unfair management.
Management couldn't care less about how you're coping with work load or about the levels of cleanliness. Most of the catering staff has no experience or they are bank, which means they have lower standars e.g speed of working and service to the residents.
No support from management, no training
Middle management with no idea about people and lack of compassion towards staff. No work life balance as you are expected to just cover shifts of 12hours days and nights without question. Very much a who you know not what you know organisation, if you are related you progress if not don't get too comfy.
Experience dependant on which site. Review about Charterhouse only. Bad place for RNs as too much work, little support, and toxic attitudes from support workers. Management over confident but inept. Overly concerned about profit.
Overloaded with work, unsupporting inexperienced management and some very bad support workers
Professional workplace with excellent training and supportive management. Family friendly part-time hours with no compulsory weekend work. High standards of cleanliness.
Family friendly hours.
Little chance of progression within the company.
Working there in the kitchen was quite difficult in till I got the hang of what to do. I really enjoy getting to work with groups of people and serving food to the elderly. St Monica trust is a lovely place to work.
getting to meet new people
St Monica Trust is a forward thinking innovative company working in the care sector. They look after the welfare of their staff and ensure that they follow up any concerns you may have. As the activities coordinator it was my role to provide a fun and enjoyable range of activities for the residents and in some cases the residents living in the on site independent village.
Good food provided at a reasonable cost
It is a shame management is such a disappointment because the care team is actually fantastic. If you work full time it's 37.5hr a week Smt only allows short shifts 7.5hrs which means your in work 5 days a week which Inst much of a balance for my family. Salary and holiday is good, but they are really strict on sickness. But working in a care home with vulnerable people you should be able to have more days sickness rather then come in ill and pass it on to them.
I work nights there as a Bank staf. I need to make sure aldery people are safe and comfortable during the night. Sometimes give them a drink or food if needed. Free
Company with high standart and opportunity to develop
Do not pay for a breaks
Generally the ground staff that work here are amazing. They are kind, compassionate and work so incredibly hard to make things the best they can for residents. The pay and benefits are fairly very good but, and it's a big but, the management structure is unfair. Management are all related or very good friends meaning any issues you have are resolved unfairly as they stick with their friends/family. It also leaves very little room for progression as they will always develop those people above anyone else. It's one of those 'if your face fits' kind of companies.
Occupational sick pay, childcare vouchers, amazing team
