    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

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

    Pros

    Good pay, busy work, lots to learn and able to be involved in lots of HR related cases and daily tasks.

    Cons

    Poor management, local-level recruitment not great, Head Office out of touch with what happens in the homes, too much focus on high numbers of care staff working for resident benefit (which makes staff less stressed and happy at work) making staff feel overworked and under valued.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on staffing levels which allow the residents to live enriched lives. The home administrators are often criticised for missing small tasks when there are so many that they do and they consistently do it well, but one small failure is made out to be the biggest catastrophe. You will see less administrators leaving if more time and effort is invested in developing them and their future careers- there is no progression...
