    lobby for good pay and sick pay. Two week backwards rolling leaves is not acceptable and poor.

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

    Pros

    brand new home, luxury for residents. Nice to be in at beginning. fabulous deputy manager, very knowledgable and supportive.

    Cons

    delay in getting residents very depressing staff room, unable to relax in staff room or use phone corperate approach affects flexibility of resident care and staff diversity

    Advice to Management

    review pay. review induction, good to get induction with other team members and updated on everything, standard of delivery was very variable from excellent and informative to inadequate and rude. also 3 weeks was long exhausting , and on uncomfortable chairs and claustrophobic at times in training room. improve staff room need comfortable chair /radio, value good workers regular... debrief /supervision

    I have been working at Care UK full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay rate, increasing every 6-12 months to match with the competition Great time off from work on annual leave holidays Access to plenty of extra shifts Ideal deputy manager and CLN which work close to senior staff Outstanding CQC rated environment Flexible shifts and enough room to develop if interest is present

    Cons

    No sick pay scheme for current level of staff Limited nursing or senior staff contracts to up to 45 hours Employer is forced due to staff shortages to move you on nights or out from nights Unstable environment due to some non-interested newcomers in domain No scheme of increasing salary by % for each year remaining together

    Advice to Management

    Say "Hello" before asking or guiding for a new task Open and listen advices if the target of Outstanding is to be permanent Be tolerant towards your senior staff which support and guide for years Remain stiff and firm in front of new-comers who want to cut corners and have demands (which in balance make the older ones feel put on second spot) Spread the workload even on the same ranked staff as they all get the same... pay

    "Void!! care uk is all about the money not the people"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Registered Nurse in Colchester, England

    I worked at Care UK for more than a year

    Pros

    Care team is mostly very good but work under pressure of management

    Cons

    Very poor management Poor communication with management Management will stress you daily and will talk you in a rough not nice manner, I've seen management insult carer in front of professionals and relatives. Management is unreliable, non trustworthy, they care the work to be done and they will leave you with short staff for over 20 dementia residents. If somebody call sick and they know the day before they... will not cover. Simply too much pressure, no appreciation, never been heard, afraid of speak up. Simply disgraceful the way management treat staff and residents! Cause of short staff , residents who paid so much money don't get the care they deserve. I left the place and I can see how happy I am in my new job where There is enough staff, is organised and residents are happy. I feel sorry for the staff who still are there and suffer every day.
