Work-life balance


Employee in Chorley
on 3 January 2018
Excellent workforce, Great culture on the shopfloor
Job was excellent when i first started, it is terrible now. Cuts in budget are the main cause but the management are appalling and organisation is terrible. No value of staff anymore, no one cares about the place or the job, generally not a good place to work anymore. certainly not a job for life.

Calm, enjoyable environment
Staff are polite with employees and visitors. I enjoyed working there i felt every invited. I worked hard whilst there and turned up nicely presented and was polite to all that came.
Frontline Staff in Chorley, Lancashire
on 5 February 2020
Good "on the ground" staff, incompetent senior managers
The public facing staff are all generally dedicated and care about the public that they are there to serve. The senior managers are, without exception, driven by cutting costs and saving money from the frontline services whilst given themselves unjustified pay rises. If your face fits and you are happy to turn a blind eye to corruption, you can do well even if you are incompetent and unqualified
Would not like to say. in Union Street.

Stalag Luft Chorley....
I worked at this place for over 10 years and whilst I can honestly say that when I started back in 2004 it was a good place to work and that the authority was a good one to work for unfortunately this drastically changed after a few years. The place is now run like a German concentration camp and HR should acquire themselves some uniforms made by Hugo Boss. Staff are treated appallingly and bullying is widespread and when reported to the powers that be you are personally seen as a troublemaker. I have never been made to feel so undervalued or patronised in my entire life working at this place - if you are thinking of ever applying for a job here please take my advice and don't bother. I left nearly two years ago and do not regret doing so for one second.
Assistant support officer/receptionist in Chorley, Lancashire
on 6 March 2018
supportive, rewarding, challenging
There is no typical day at Cotswold. Every day is different. I learned how to plan and priorotise and that I can't change the world , just help to make it better. I have enjoyed each and every day and I am part of a great, hard working efficient team. Unfortunatly changes have to be made and sometimes this means that people lose their jobs if there isn't enough government funds to keep certain positions open.
