Child and family practitioner

Dec 2021

Child and family practitioner

Queensland, Australia
3 to 4 years in the role,

TBS is a wonderful organisation focused on support and kindness to clients and staff alike.

The good things

The Benevolent Society is a wonderful place to work. I constantly felt supported, heard and was encouraged to progress throughout the 2.5 years I was there. The management was understanding, compassionate and I felt totally supported. The company as a whole is, in my opinion, the best run organisation in Australia. They care about their staff and provide ample resources to complete your role, promote training and advance your practice. Regular supervision, flexibility around personal situations and understanding was emphasised. On the ground, the staff was extremely stable with low turnover and a lovely workplace culture even throughout COVID. I would 1000% recommend TBS and had I not relocated to another region, would absolutely have continued to work for them. A great, well resourced NGO with a kind work culture.

Disability Support Practitioner

Disability Support Practitioner

New South Wales, Australia
Less than 1 year in the role,

Team was great, management poor.

The good things

The multidisciplinary team structure and the opportunities to learn from each other.
Continue reading

The challenges

Micromanagement is at the core of the management structure. Heavy focus on KPIs rather than the quality of the services being delivered. Management do not have a proper understanding of HR policies. Clear that organisation values $ more than the clients and staff welfare.

National Office

Oct 2020

National Office

New South Wales, Australia

Attractive role on the outside, but the actual role and environment not so much. The grass is not always greener.

The good things

The offices were nice and well kept, bikkies in the lunch room, often some food was provided during events
Continue reading

The challenges

The teams and management. There is a divide between those in the front line roles and those supporting from head office that makes it difficult to explain why you are doing things. Management constantly asking for feedback and suggestions but not taking these on board - mostly for show. Managements inability to communicate with employees on their performance whether it be good or bad. I found it hard to know if I was doing a good job or not as I received mixed feedback. Lack of trust in employees doing their job. Not a lot of support when starting in terms of team building and interpersonal relationships.
