Overall reviews at Nua Healthcare
Social Worker | Multyfarnham, County Westmeath | 6 Feb 2017
Challenging but progressive environment
I'e learned many skills during my tenure, inclusive of MAPA training, SAMMS, fire safety etc as well as detailed, comprehensive e-learning modules.
As an administrator I work in close proximity to the unit management learning and completing and reviewing required documentation such as personal plans and required HIQA documentation.
Role requires dealing appropriately with behaviors that challenge and aggressive/assaultive behaviours.
Most enjoyable component is facilitating service user growth and supporting them to reach their chosen goals and aspirations.

ConsLong Hours at times

Not a pleasant place to work, handy to get experience.
Lack of support from management and low payment. In many situations, staff are put at danger. This depends on what centre you are assigned to but in high support units you are more likely to be put at risk. It's an excellent way of getting experience as once you stay there for a while, you'll be able to work anywhere.

Long hour's no extra pay for weekend work, on some service user's 12 hour's in the house without getting out for a drive etc,very hard or can't get a shift covered when something pop's up at home, management do their best, but lack of funding and staff leavingmake it difficult for them.

Run away from this company
This company shud b shut down from the top 2 the bottom noting but a bunch of bullies no idea how 2 treat their staff overworked and underpaid with no prospects of ever going forward to better yourself.

Stressful and management don't care at all about staff
Very stressful work environment, you will take a lot of abused from the service users and management will do nothing to prevent this! If you are sick for any length of time they will let you go. I would not recommend this company for anyone who has a choice.
ConsStressful and staff get abused
Support Worker | Naas, County Kildare | 10 Jan 2021
A great place for slackers.
Avoid this company, there are better companies in Ireland to work for. The pics in some houses were bullies. There also seems to be an element of favouritism in some houses, where people get lovely day shifts all the time and never seem to work weekends. As I said avoid this company.
ProsWhen it's time to go home
Support Worker | Dublin | 15 Sep 2020
Hire with no experience, lack support for staff
I found the company to be quick with interviews and there is loads of hours for the staff, the training was fantastic. No shadow shifts if you are new to this field, did not feel the company safeguarded the staff in terms of aggressive behaviours and how this should be followed up. Shift times sometimes overlapped which adds pressure to get from address to address, long shift to shift with no time for a break. The logistics also sometimes did not make sense, the areas were not always grouped.
ProsTraining and upskilling options available, support with back to college to further qualifications
ConsShifts, office staff did not always come back to you regardless of the problem.
