The 15 hour shifts are far to long for someone to be 1-1 with people as complex as Thera’s service users and each hour is gruelling and badly underpaid.
They would just about break every rule in employment law, but being a charity helps them to get away with treating their staff so disrespectfully
You will be expected to do 14-15 hour days and if you do one of their badly paid sleep ins you can expect to be rota’d to work up to a 14 hour shift the next day with no consideration given to sleep deprivation.
The working hours are great as the company offer's flexible working so I am able to fit my life around my work much better than I have in previous jobs.

Depends where you work. Remember It's annualised hours. This means that although you could be contracted for e.g 30 pw you could end up doing more or less a week. Your annualised hours run from April to April and your holiday is from when you start. All very confusing, just make sure you keep a note of your hours even though it's all online now errors on that part often happen.
