    I worked at Care UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues, nice environment in new build homes

    Cons

    Home managers can be very unsteady in terms of quick turnover. Training is inconsistent and depends on the strength of the home administrator's multi-tasking skills. Administrators often expected to do a lot more than they have time for, and tasks above their pay grade. Salaries vary widely too depending on home budgets.

    I worked at Care UK full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A great bunch of people who really try to live by Care Uk's values Good social events Good culture Spend on training and image

    Cons

    Aggressive resourcing for care homes - recruiters desperate to fill posts leaving gaps in suitability of care assistants put in post... I liken the skill they pitch at, as a standard lower than your local binman. Too much put on home staff for auditing and reporting to Head Office, impacting on actual care given to residents! Death by statistics and meetings. Corporate greed gone mad - at the expense of the care and...
