Busy but rewarding work place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I found working at Ashdale Care rewarding but also challenging in ways. Good training is given. The management in encouraging and supportive. You work as part of a team and some people work harder than others and sometimes end up doing more that others. But voicing this to management can help.

Senior management do not care about floor staff

Would not recommend working for this company for a list of reasons. To provide high levels of care to the vulnerable young people in the services means you need to care and support floor staff adequately. This is not happening. Floor staff feel undervalued and exhausted and are leaving in droves (my self included) due to high staff turn over, significant cuts in annual leave with zero staff input or negotiation, although advertised no salary review. Staff are feeling exhausted and undervalued and leaving, so overtime is the norm with no extra pay nor ability acrue annual leave days when working overtime. 5 paid sick days for a job that involves high levels of personal risk is also extremely poor.Avoid, avoid, avoid - other companies offering more staff support and pay out there, keep looking.


Excellent floor staff who are highly supportive of each other.


Annual leave cut significantly, no pay review, no real self care initiatives for staff, poor rotas due to high staff turn over resulting in an exhausted workforce, High staff turn over so having to form trust and connections to new teams very often, negative impact on children in service, forming and breaking attachments over and over.

No support, high staff turnover = low morale

Rewarding work but lack of support for staff on the floor has resulted in super low morale and high turnover. Home managers are struggling from cuts and pressures above.It is worth noting that overnight hours (which can often be spent awake / on the floor) are paid at minimum wage and not actually counted towards contract hours, annual leave entitlements have been recently cut, no annual pay review this year as advertised.I’ve seen so many teams come and go and it has a massive impact on the children and also puts extra pressure on remaining staff to lead shifts


Staff turnover, salary, sleep in not counted towards contract hours, sleep over hours minimum wage, long travels to family access

Unsupportive and toxic

A company which use to be extremely supportive of its employees and boast a family culture. Ashdale today is focused on profits than it’s staff care or staff retention. My time in Ashdale initially was extremely positive however as time went by the politics and toxicity of upper management and lack of care for its staff well-being became apparent. Upper management are not open to staff who hold alternative ideas to theirs and make it uncomfortable for these staff members. It is a pity this is the case as the staff are hard working and dedicate to their profession and supporting the young people. Due to this, during my time I have seen amazing colleagues leave the company due to unfair treatment and lack of support, something which has become more regular over the last year.

Supportive and engaging

I learned how a residential service should be run with Ashdale. The overall atmosphere is friendly and supportive. I grew alot within the company, they take time training staff before entering them into a house and pay you for the training. The young people in the service are well looked after as well as the staff. There is alot of paper work but that is the same in every residential service. The only down fall is work life balance, you do receive an overnight allowance which counts for something, but they do not work under the working time act. Overall though it is a great residental service that I would recommend.


Paid training, supportive, job advancement

I have learned a lot working for this organisation. They put the young people at the heart of everything they do. The work is collaborative and your ideas are always taken on board and explored.
