Admin Officer, Technical Officer, Project Support Officer in Warrington, Cheshire
on 30 March 2021
A good, ethical, people-centred organisation
My time at the EA gave me so much scope for development, and some of my managers there were incredibly supportive and amazing. The workplace culture and ethos is about supporting and trusting staff- and learning from rather than punishing mistakes. In many ways it was a very progressive organisation. Their investment in training for staff, and the exemplary standards I found in some teams and departments were incredible. Work/life balance is taken incredibly seriously. I also had the opportunity to get involved in Incident Management- voluntary duty roles, where I was able to branch out into cell lead for logistics, and from there I was supported and empowered to become a local tactical lead. I adored my time there - it was such a supportive, incredible team of specialists behind me, and I was empowered and trusted/supported in the decisions I took. The EA was without a doubt the best employer I've ever worked for.

Poor management
Unsure if all areas are like this but in my area management is weak, unorganised and unfocused. It’s hard to know what is a priority and there is a lack of direction and guidance. The systems used are archaic and unsuitable for the job we do, and management are resistant to change. They talk a lot about being business like but don’t work like a business at all. That said, you will never find a place more willing to train you, more flexible with working hours and family friendly! The office culture is friendly.

There is coruption from top to bottom in this organization but senior people and lower grades involved will pull the old school or the degree level ca
Management liken themselves to heroes, in fact they even put them selves on courses for 'the few' how concieted and direspectful can you be? There are rules for the inner circle of corruption and stagnation or dismissal for anyone who doesnt toe the line or become a yes man. Dont take my word for it ask others, or better still go to a few sites and ask questions, you will be told what they want you to hear, not the truth or reality. Blantant disregard for government agreed procedures, blatant disregard for agreed procurement protocols, lying to Supportive associations and the list goes on. Managers put in place via rigged job applications, team leaders with no experience in charge of often deadly situations and politically sensitive issues combine to make this organization unfit for purpose. I was originally 100% loyal to the EA and 100% against the proposed give away to the C&river trust, I now hope it goes ahead simply to weed out the spineless corrupt individuals
Emergency Call Handler in Sheffield, South Yorkshire
on 15 June 2020
crucial to the environment and for public awareness
The job I had was in the emergency incident call room where reports of environment issues, flooding, illegal waste disposal, signs of water pollution etc were all taken in, locations found on maps, logged and categorized. There was a lot to learn and the team around were always helpful plus there are floor managers to speak to if unsure. Calls can range from any thing of someone burning tires to a nuclear power plant routine call to make sure all systems are working which nearly made me go into meltdown myself! You pick up a lot of information from other call handlers that isn't covered in the training and sometimes it feels like you are in the deep end but there is always someone to help and a computer system that you can continually check information on. It's a 24/7 pattern so if working nights isn't for you don't even think about it as it's crucial to the job. Besides taking in calls there is also alarm monitoring which means that if a river or fishery water level is rising or dropping alarms will sound and you need to log that and in the case of fisheries contact them immediately to avoid a horrendous fish kill incident. .. besides that the day is pretty chill..The management team are fantastic, completely supportive and inclusive and absolutely NO amount of bullying or offensive treatment of others is acceptable. It beats any type of call centre job if you can handle the nights. Parking is an issue as is public transportation times.
