    Current Employee - Life Skills Support Worker in Haywards Heath, England

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The staff are amazing, friendly and so helpful and mindful of each other. If you want to improve a process or activities with residents your opinion and ideas are always considered. You have your own voice. Training is regular and encouraged. If you wish to complete a qualification, Care UK will support you.

    Cons

    We are not paid for our breaks and do not have any enticing benefits. Sometimes it can take quite a while for new equipment to arrive once we have reported a fault. I would like to see more interaction with residents who are not as fortunate as others to have family visit them.

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

    Pros

    Perkz employee discounts is a small but appreciated token. The pay is more than decent, and there are plenty of hours available to work.

    Cons

    It is stressful, not a huge support framework to help you in the beginning but rather you have to learn a lot by yourself, and it can be very psychologically demanding.
