Fife council were okay employers, but didn’t listen when you had concerns about a service user,always said they would look into it, also if you had problems with service user or families very slow to do anything about problem ,managers just seemed to be not interested as long as you done your job
Pros
None
Cons
Long hours, pushing more work onto you when your rots was full

Easy enough job, easy to pick up and carry out tasks. Co workers were good and pace of work was fine. Job security was fine until 2 years of service when they have to offer you a full time contract. Was promised a contract until Upper management changed in last week of my contract.
Pros
Good work/life balance
Cons
Just a number

What a great job, Working with the Provost and Deputy Provost of the Council, taking them to places that I would normally be unable to access, Hours were sometimes late, sometimes weekend work, but that was the needs and requirements of the job.
Pros
Good people to work for
Cons
Sometimes anti-social hours.

good job but budget cuts are affecting the serive provision. You have to work 3 years before you get a contact. So you have to worry every year if you will be kept on

Not a good employer.....fail to follow/implement areas of employment law (workers rights etc e.g. Equality Act) simply because it’s too expensive or doesn’t suit them too.

I worked for Fife Coucil for 16years as a carer great in house training, then went on to be Home Care Coordinatos which was a great experience but with the changes Managers moving out office, and coordiators expected to pick up some of their workload. It started to lose the human touch.

Job and hours are good however the management and full time staff treat seasonal workers like dirt. Nepatism is rife as is favouritism. Hard work does not get you anywhere

Start at 7 am by putting tools and lawnmowers in the trailer on the van. Management gave orders for the day before you left the yard. More or less cut grass all day long, some times weeding or litter picking too. Never realised there were so many hills in KDY with grass on them. On an average day, I would say most people were happy in their jobs and most people got on well with each other.

I have learnt so much within my time working with fife council. I have taken on board more leadership roles which has impacted on my overall skill set and qualities. I have been given lots of opportunities to attend interviews and achieve and challenge more within my practice.

The teams I have been based in are very supportive. Often share the same values as myself. Love being able to help the young people I support, as its rewarding to be able to help another person achieve their goals.

To work for Gife council is quite an easy relaxing job depending on which area you chose to apply for. I was a cleaner and it was hardworking and all about helping as part of a team.
