Awful Awful company !
Higher Management (head office and the CEO) do not support the nurseries well at all, its all about the profit.
Nurseries are run on the max ratio of staff to children, which yes is legal but it just doesn't work, the staff are run off their feet with little support. Managers are in ratio constantly, No one to cover you if you need to leave the room for anything as everyone in the building are counted in ratio.
Apprentices - anyone looking to start a career in childcare with the prospect of being taken on at the end of your training - go elsewhere, you are highly unlikely to be taken on and will be replaced by a another apprentice, even the best are let go because they want cheap staff.
The company during Covid have shown their true colours! They do not look after their staff, the "Tops Family" they like to portray is total rubbish (unless your related the the CEO, Many are !!)
Staff turnover is massively high this includes Managers in Plymouth. This speaks for itself !!
The CEO is rude and abrupt. If your face doesn't fit you're pushed out.
Your Contract will now have a Permanent Lay off/short time working clause, they will/can lay you off for 6 wks within a 13wk period and no doubt will use it again and again to their advantage!
Desperate for a job? look elsewhere!!
Terrible Higher Management/CEO - Permanent lay off clause
