What Employees Say
I have been working at Care UK part-time for less than a year
Really interesting workshops, where I gained a lot of information about the care sector.
Probably the overload of online coursework to do. I felt a bit pressured to get it done as soon as I could. I felt tired and stressed at times.
Advice to Management
From personal observation, the communication between staff and Management is at times non existant. Anything that can be done to improve this would help a great deal. I have to add that my Line... Manager has been very helpful and supportive towards myself and colleagues.
I worked at Voyage Care full-time for more than 3 years
Opportunity for progression, treated well by management and great people we support. You will read bad reviews on here and indeed from people who either had their contract terminated or who can’t... understand basic employments. All company’s have policies and procedures which everyone needs to follow - I have noticed most posts have been by those who don’t recognize the commitment they may have made and then we’re terminated from the service due to being a risk to the team or pws. I worked with a great team of people and always felt supported by everyone. The support workers were difficult sometimes as they didn’t understand the workload or pressure in the DCA offices however this is expected. I wouldn’t go into this role if you want an easy life, it does come with a lot of responsibility but I throughly enjoyed it.
The pay for all support workers and the office team is slightly lower than the average care provider - although this is made up in the fantastic culture and support from the company. No pay for on... call! This is a serious problem as the on call is as abused regularly by support workers and therefor it’s more difficult to retain office staff due to unhealthy work life balance - please pay them!
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you’re doing - maybe get the CEO to review pay for on call services.
