About Mayday Trust


What is it like to work for Mayday Trust

Leadership
Leadership
The Chief Executive is open and honest, consults with her staff and engages in regular dialogue with them. She moves easily from dealing with strategic to operational matters or personal matters - to meet the needs of the situation. She is happy "getting her hands dirty" and will not ask anyone to do anything she would not do herself - this is evidenced by the level of her involvement with staff and residents on her "Back to the Floor" days.
My Manager
My Manager
All managers within Mayday Trust have completed a management training course which was run by an external consultant in 2009. This was also supplemented in 2010. The Trust also holds two Managers Forums a year where all managers get together to discuss strategy etc. Managers also hold quarterly Managers meetings within their regions and new starters receive added support in the form of the buddy system.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Although Mayday Trust does not operate a "flexi" working hours scheme the Trust is flexible with staff to ensure everyone benefits from a positive work/life balance. Managers may request to work from home and working hours can be altered to meet business/personal circumstances. The company also offer employees support around quitting smoking, eating healthily and losing weight, to name but a few. All advice is available through Westfield Health which is open to all employees.
