I enjoyed this position but left to stay with my father, would recommend to school leavers to get them into outdoor work and horticulture. Had some great laughs with my team’s, there are lot of good people in the workforce.
Meet new people, have a laugh with team
Litter picking in winter, low pay for apprentices
the job as a hole is good but the cost on management wages must be in excess of 200,000 a year to which is a waste of public money and does not need as many management staff to run outdoor amenities health and safety for workers is not the best. cheap or wrong P.P.E for the job or jobs that you do risk assessments for workers needs alot of improvement as well as health and safety wages need to be improved more to bring it in line with other local councils.
With this water turned off and the sink is disconnected the joiners came in and stripped the whole kitchen. Once done,all pipe work was renewed and when the joiners renewed all units the sink was then fitted and made water tight. I learned their way of doing this type of job as this is the way they do all kitchens. Hardest part was when we were in filthy conditions ie needles,etc. Seeing the end result as the finished job was infinitely better than when we first got there. Culture wise,everybody knew their job and it was done with efficiency alongside a great camaraderie between all the workers even being in such tight spaces.
I loved my role as a carer within East Ayrshire Council and worked 18 years there..I have a great rappore with people and was complimented many times over the years from both management,service users and service users families.
I dont drive, was always ensured to be working within a decent walking span...Also the hours suited me..
I worked with East Ayrshire Council social department for 30 and throughly enjoyed the whole experience, a first class employer who look after the health safety and wellbeing of every employee. Supportive and keen to help employees gain appropriate qualifications and move up the career ladder. Highly recommended.
Unless you stay in the Ayrshire area I wouldn't even apply for this job they give you no help on getting to work unless you work in the voids section. Colleagues are fun to work with but managers expect too much from you. Pay doesn't equal the amount of work that you do. Plus they also think that plasterer are tilers so be prepared to tile as well and roughcast and put up ceiling in some of the smelliest houses I have ever worked in
Good pension and holidays
I worked here for 3 years and I can honestly say it was terrible, you get sucked in at the start everything is fine then it’s just goes down hill. The wages are terrible you will start at the bottom bracket, the management really don’t have a clue what they are doing especially in the repairs section where I worked. If I could give someone advice it is to stay clear of this place it’s a toxic atmosphere. Where everyone just wants to gossip make up rumours. All in all it’s just a toxic atmosphere that just is not worth your health
i was only here for a short time as a work placement, i felt very welcome and enjoyed going into work everyday. the management were very good always making sure i was feeling welcomed and comfortable. i would definitely consider a career within EA in the future
relaxing work place
at the time of working here it suited my life style as i had two children at school and i worked school hours and had school holidays. i initially started off as a baker in a big local high school and worked my way up to manager.
I worked here as a trainee for Administration, I didnt get the chance to finish certain parts of training as there wasnt enough time due to the course endeing in 16 weeks, i felt no support and couldnt talk to the person in charge, as she wasnt approachable, the commute to work was the hardest part, the most enjoybale was the group of people selected for the training they were nice
Travel Expenses Paid
Hours and Placement
The most enjoyable thing about the job was the learning side I had a good supervisor who was a good teacher. So I had a good time at East Ayrshire Council the time I was employed there.
Good pension fund
The course could have been longer
