A good friendly atmosphere where staff are often promoted from within the company giving good opportunities for career progression. An onsite café means that staff don't need to bring lunch however this is a Jewish organisation and no food is allowed onsite that isn't kosher if you work around the clients. In spite of the friendly atmosphere, the site in Wokingham Without is in a rural location where a car is essential due to the roads that must be used to travel there.
Support Worker (Current Employee) – Hendon, London – 26 January 2013
I have gained skills and knowledge on how to support people with learning disabilites with their daily activities, to communicate and establish trust relationship to them and their family etc. Support them with their wishes and needs towards helping them to achieve as much independence as possible. Typical day at work would be busy from personal care to their activities but i find it enjoyable as I have been working with them for 7years. Hardest part of the job would be when short of staff. Co-workers work as a team making sure that the residents recieve the best quality of care.
one free meal in each shift
long hours but always given an hour break which is fair
