Difficult job, but rewarding

Support Worker (Current Employee)
Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

I have been working at Care UK full-time for less than a year

ProsPerkz employee discounts is a small but appreciated token. The pay is more than decent, and there are plenty of hours available to work.

ConsIt is stressful, not a huge support framework to help you in the beginning but rather you have to learn a lot by yourself, and it can be very psychologically demanding.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement the Common Induction Standard. It's there, use it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Ups and Downs

Nurse (Former Employee)
Ponteland, England (UK)

I worked at Care UK full-time for more than a year

ProsPro-active in staff training for HCAs and to a degree for qualified staff. Qualified pay is reasonable.
Better overall than many of its competitors.

ConsQualified staff have to wear pink, which for most male nurses is not really appropriate.
Very poor at responding to complaints of harassment/bullying by Home Managers towards staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a grip!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

The staff are great, always helpful and easy to get along with.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Care UK part-time

ProsMy manager of two years has been one of the best I've worked with. He has been supportive and accomodated new ideas. Most importantly he made staff feel important. I may have been lucky to have a great manager who has influenced me but I generallylike the management.

ConsSome organisational practices can improve, although the company has started to improve practices. Recently, a few strict rules and procedures have been put in place that have made for some less convinientprocedures. However, nothig too alarming.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
