Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) – London – 27 February 2018
The place is very well skilled and with knowledgeable people, the payments could be improved, also they tend to keep the people in the same place with the clients so it becomes a routine. not so easy to move or improve
Brain Injury Support Worker (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 16 December 2018
As a Post Graduate Student I was looking for ad hoc work during weekends and long University breaks, which the Company didn't fulfil. There wasn't enough work and a great deal of free training you had to do 5 days unpaid at the start, and hours online unpaid mandatory training, talking about approx 10 hours per 3 months to keep up to training standards. Good for clients, bad for staff as it's time consuming, unless you wanted free certification.
I didn't think staff communication was consistent, I had notified the company of my availability months in advance via e-mail, telephone and they still hadn't found me any work and then blamed me for not working for a long time and not keeping up to my training and sent a letter to say they would terminate my contract, without having had a precautionary phone call first. I'm surprised there isn't a more stringent protocol the company puts in place before this procedure. I had been in communication with the office countless times and nothing was relayed onto the correct person. It seems like they hire countless number of staff to fill positions and you're just a pawn in a large pool of employees.
Field Supervisor (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 15 September 2017
Can be a busy bustling place most times. staff team focused and dedicated throughout the day. Kind to each other.
Results driven mixture of skill and experience.
Learned a lot about business in the care sector figures numbers Highly experienced managers who know what they are doing. not like the public sector Managers who work their way up through who they know.
Work hard and play harder at Sweettree, lots of fund raising and charity work going on.
Hardest part of the Job is there is no down time until deadlines are met.
THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART IS THE APPROACH TO VALUING EVERY OTHER PERSON. EVERYBODY IS SOMEBODY AT SWEETTREE They treat their carers with respect and their are plenty of awards and recognition.
Bagels on Thursdays Barry and Nikki are very generous
Support Worker/Carer (Former Employee) – London – 4 April 2017
very committed to my job role and responsibilities; combined work with fun at work. Flexible and ability to adjust to difficult situations. I have empathetic and passionate about clients needs, including emotional needs. For me the most fun part working with clients or working for clients is when they are happy while out and about in the community.

brain injury (Current Employee) – London, ENG – 23 November 2015
Low salaries considering the responsibilities and the amount of work. At times you end up taking your work home with you, because of the nature of the job. No much room for progression. It is only good for new starters or people with no much experience of mental health issues.
