    No Opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Really interesting workshops, where I gained a lot of information about the care sector.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    The staff are all really friendly, as if we're all one big family. The training is outstanding, in the few months I've been there I've had online training and also an amazing opportunity to be trained as a manual handler trainer, which I took up. It was brilliant! Leadership are on the ball, they are great at what they are doing and always look out for the rest of the team. Teamwork is essential, and we always help each other.

    Cons

    I am at college studying as well, so working and being at college can be difficult, especially trying to manage work-load. We are only allowed 3 days off sick every 6 months, so if we have any more days off due to be really really poorly then we risk losing our jobs. We still have not got a full team in our department so work-load at work can be stressful especially when team are on holiday or off sick and there are less of us to do everything.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give lots more training opportunities to all departments, so that all staff are well trained in each areas with high understanding so if needed other departments can step in to help if short of staff but there is an emergency etc.
