Cleaner (part-time) in Dunbar
on 3 August 2020
Old Employee
Worked here for 5 years. Every day is a new day with ELC. It's a great company to work for if they gave back what you give in and looked after their staff more closely. Work is fabulous can't fault it but I can fault the support.
Repair Manager /Asset Manager in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh

Never work here
The back biting incompetence and lack of management is horrific. The are all scared of the day they have never seen and don't yet realize how incompetent they actually are because no one ever truly holds them to account.
Security assistant in Macmerry
on 25 February 2020
although it was long shifts the work was varied and interesting attending alarm activations in the county and meeting different emergency services staff, also working with a great bunch of staff in the CCTV suite.
Business Support Assistant in Haddington, East Lothian
on 29 January 2020
Great place to work
Great place to work, made amazing friends and worked collaboratively with other departments to support people living in East Lothian. I felt support throughout my time at ELC
Senior Facilities Manager in East Lothian
on 8 January 2020
Straight forward job
As above, the job is easy and straightforward not the most intertwine or challenging but all the staff I’ve worked with have been interesting & fun. There’s not much room to advance from what I can see.
