Can be a place of growth and career opportunities.
I enjoyed my time working with Southern Cross Care. I grew, not just professionally but personally as well. During my time, I found the company to be open to my opinions and requests; resulting in being given opportunities for career development, leadership and training positions.
Changes in management always took time for a resettlement amongst staff and residents, but it does eventually happen.
Hardest part of the job was keeping up with changes to paperwork; a constant upgrading, but that is a good thing.
The most enjoyable part was working and spending time with the residents; seeing them making changes in their own lives; the smiles of self-belief on their faces.
Salary Sacrifice. Barbecue lunches for staff every now and again.
At times not having enough regular staff.
