Teacher in Inverness, Highland
on 8 September 2022
No room for progression
Unfortunately once you gain a role in a school you are stuck there. No internal transfers and no jobs available due to surplus of teachers nationally.
Pupil Support Assistant in Inverness

Interesting but bound by constraints
Varied tasks with varied children require the candidate to think on their feet to be able to support a variety of abilities and disabilities, while following a strict timetable

Work Place and management
I worked for the Highland Council for over 10 years. And in all that time there was only one line manager who was any good and new the job.They retired him off because he was good at his job. From then on there were a succession of managers who were just yes me and had no idea about our needs in the field.it is unfortunate that this is how the council is run the moral in the staff is very poor at times and i am glad i left.It was starting to affect my mental well-being and i hard to have counselling because of the stress i was placed under.They are not a good organisation to work for unless you have the right person as a line manager.When you have a problem they stick there heads in the sand.

Pay can and should be better.
This job can be demanding at time's double runs for poor pay and no thanks for it. Just your expected to do it no matter if you have kids coming home from school or what ever. You get treated unfair at time's when you don't fall in line with management demands. But job is very secure. That i do like. Holiday's are great once you been there 5 year's. Double time day in lue for working Holiday's. Time and a half for working overtime. Definitely a younger person's job.
Social Worker in Nairn, Highland
on 7 April 2022
I was left to home work with no experience and no help to settle into the area. I have two small children. I asked for help to find child care.
I ended up having to leave this post due to lack of support, lack of child care. Very little training and being told I was not settling after a year of asking for help over and over.
