Does Care UK assist with or provide childcare?

Pros

The residents are the best part of the job

Cons

Pay below par, national minimum wage on 12 hours shift. No benefits whatsoever, no mileage, care Perks are some online vouchers that you can find anywhere!

Advice to Management

It’d be helpful if the managers would stick less notes on the doors and walls. I don’t need to be reminded that “the food bought by Care UK is for residents only”.

How do employees feel about their professional development opportunities at Care UK?

Pros

The commitment to training staff is better than any other company I have worked with previously. The people and teams are one of the best aspects of working at Care UK. Also, the work itself can be very rewarding.

Cons

Teams are run very lean with a poor work-life balance. Senior leadership don't tend to genuinely engage with their teams, they spend more time talking at them instead of listening and getting a realistic picture of hard work and dedication folks put in 5-7 days a week.
