    Cons

    Sometimes the speed of change is hard to keep up with, but you get used to that:) Bromford is all about innovation which has to be a good thing,

    Advice to Management

    I was a true ‘grow your own’ colleague and started as a support worker, working within homelessness. I became a senior support worker then service manager - covering a huge floating support service which helped thousands of people to live better lives and keep a roof over their head. I have always loved this about Bromford as we work with ‘people’ not just their properties. We truly believe that homes are just a springboard to better lives.
    I loved my time in support but was grateful to secure a new position when we sadly lost our government funded support services. Bromford looked after me when that happened and I’m now 2.5 years into a job I love as colleague coach and I love it! Bromford are putting me through my professional qualification so I can be the best I can be,
    I’ll be celebrating my 15 year anniversary this year and my advice would be- ‘keep growing your own’ as we have some truly incredible colleagues that I feel proud to work with.

    Amazing company and place for those who want to make a difference to people. Very flexible with lots of opportunities

    Recently the organisation has become very heavy with consultants and people were taken away from their normal jobs to do project work. Management need to watch this as it's not what most people come here for

    I have been working at Bromford part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great company to work for with many added perks like Bromford rewards scheme. I also enjoy attending our annual Bromford Bash in Birmingham. I have found this a great place to see where the company is heading and to meet up which colleagues from other schemes and services.

    HQ is quite far away so training is sometimes a bit far.

    Pros

    I have been working at Bromford as a neighbourhood coach for nearly 6 months now and have to say I thoroughly enjoy my job. The training and support I have received from day one has been excellent, do you have flexibility to plan your day and there is always someone on hand to help and advise you. The job is varied and the company is forward thinking. I look forward to having a long standing career with Bromford!

    Cons

    None so far I can think of
