    I have been working at Care UK part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours, training taken very seriously, pay rate is good

    Cons

    Don't always feel supported by management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staffing levels: service users are not just numbers. If a unit has 3 empty beds please don't just veto the use of agency staff to bring the numbers up to quota; the needs of the service users MUST be part of the equations e.g. high dependency, challenging behaviour, need for 15 minute observation etc.
