Constant staff changeover not good for people we support
Support Practitioner (Former Employee) – Glasgow – 26 June 2018
If you have mental health issues or medical problems then don’t bother applying! I suffer from extreme anxiety and depression at times and was made to feel like I let everyone down! New staff constantly which puts service users out of sorts, new seniors who like to belittle you, constant sleepovers and expected to go to training straight afterwards for full days training, also if you don’t drive, don’t be surprised if you get hounded for not being able to make training ( even though where you’re working before may be miles away) the only good part about this job is the people you help take care of, they really do make your heart happy, even though it can be very challenging! Also, supposed I have at least 3 weeks notice of rota, but don’t be surprised if you have 1 week rota and not get a new one until the day before it’s due to end. And i’d Double check the rota is correct in the first place! Most of the other support practitioners are amazing people, who are also totally sick of the constant changes, and management!
