    I have been working at Mencap part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The recruitment process is great. The training is exceptional along with the e-learning and workbook that you need to complete. The team I work with and the support ive recieved is fantastic and everyone is welcoming and lovely. The people I support are amazing and the job is very rewarding. My manager is very supportive and has accommodated my hours so I can spend time with my partner and have a work life balance. Hours are fine, its a 24/7 job but I still feel I have a life too. Best job ever! Glad i applied and happy I now work for Mencap as a support worker, wish I had done it years ago.

    Cons

    Wish we had handovers between shifts because sometimes I feel its needed and comms books are misunderstood or info missing by mistake.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more shadowing after training and a few shifts on your own. I feel that by doing this and the shadowing again allows you to fill in some gaps in knowledge and also reassure your learning.
