Multi Sensory Support Worker (Former Employee) – Exeter – 2 April 2018
The department that i was working for were not able to fill the hours of my contract and blamed me! I had real concerns about safeguarding, but these were brushed aside, with the excuse that some of the parents were single parents and finding it diificult, surely this is the exact reason that safeguarding protocols exist?
Business Administrator (Current Employee) – Kent – 18 January 2018
Unrealistic demands, constant pressure and micromanaging, excessive number of Band 8's ensures crossed wires and duplication of work for everyone. Management's attitude is to ignore staff and any interaction with them is purely to berate them. As more staff leave, the expectations of remaining staff becomes unattainable. High levels of sickness, low morale and no end in sight!
Poorly run, no plan stuck to long enough to implement
Manager (Current Employee) – Devon – 29 December 2017
Lack of money and a recruitment ban, means existing staff are stressed and often off sick . Plans are rushed through to please commissioners before safeguarding services. No clear strategy in place , poorly thought out and then not implemented. Staff paid a bonus then it's taken back. Non payment of pension. Down banding of staff. Moving staff hoping they will leave to save money. I'm not normally a negative person, please unless your really stuck don't work for them . Best wishes
Brand Marketing Executive (Former Employee) – London, UK – 26 March 2017
Great working culture and creative working environment. I learnt most of what I knew about brand creation and management. I found the lack of management of the company difficult at times. I loved the flexibility of the working arrangement, an employer that trusts its employers to take control of their own working patterns always gets the best out of their employees.
SCPHN School Nurse (Current Employee) – North Devon – 14 February 2017
Management structure is quite horizontal, so good if you know the job already because there is more flexibility and autonomy - perhaps harder for newly qualified Quite a welcoming style and culture Prospects in North Devon are limited, this may not be due to Virgincare Terms and conditions are inferior to NHS, so these need to be negotiated and Virgin care do recognise this and accommodate / match if asked Training is as good as NHS
Horrible unprofessional management, not a place that builds you up, only knocks you down
Business Admin Apprentice (Former Employee) – Exeter – 16 November 2016
At the young age of 18, entering my first full time job role at Virgin Care as a Business and Admin Apprentice I despised it. I went in with a positive and optimistic attitude, only to be quickly knocked down by the management. I openly heard them talking about the way I dressed behind my back which was very unprofessional. Instead of building up my confidence and helping me progressed, they knocked me down and made me feel utterly useless. I'm so glad I made the decision to leave this company, as everything I had hoped it to be, it was not.
Currently Programme Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Daresbury or work from home – 15 November 2016
I really enjoy my current role but I'm just not utilising my strengths, and need a new challenge.
No two days are the same! Our team focuses on making the company the best possible place to work for our colleagues so we get to deal with a lot of the fun and exciting projects. I enjoy being able to help colleagues and in particular have enjoyed my experience with our new induction process called Arrivals. I'm in a brilliant team with a good manager.
The worst part of my role is the red tape - it can feel like I'm walking through treacle and it's highly frustrating, particularly for someone of my personality type. I like to get things done but I also need clarity and facts.
Virtually everything about the company and my role
Internal politics and barriers to getting the job done
Patient Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Oldham – 22 May 2016
majority of staff are zero contract hours or 2peed from Nhs. alot of sniping and back stabbing. no real training program. badly organised departments and no manager back up when things go wrong. too many managers. no structure. worse than nhs.
IT Service Desk Manager (Current Employee) – Chertsey – 21 April 2016
I work with a good team and my local management is good, but the organisation lacks a direction and comprehensive business strategy. Managers are over worked and not given any idea of corporate priorities
Norfolk Prisons Clinical Substance Misuse Lead (Current Employee) – HMP Norwich – 30 March 2016
A typical day at work for me is far from typical! everyday brings a new challenge. Working within a busy remand prison can be compared to working in A + E on a Saturday night......... busy, busy, busy!! and never a dull moment.
free car parking. access to GYM at lunch time and on site cafe.
