Registration Officer in Nottingham City Centre, Nottinghamshire
Fun, collaborative workplace and no stress
I've learned a lot within the workplace, primarily administrative duties, tasks, how to delegate tasks, leadership and teamwork, but more importantly communication and service. Although i wasn't able to fully show my potential due to limitations (lack of promotion or development), it is a great place to work and management are ok.
The hardest part of the job is keeping up to date with policy changes and withstanding the fact that you may be stuck where you are, doing the same thing, for years due to lack of development opportunities and hard interviews.
The easiest and most enjoyable part if having FLEXI and the work itself.

Terrible place to work
Only work here if you're a corporate yes person. A lot of bullying goes on in plain site. Managers don't like having to manage staff with disabilities and are often quite bigoted. The ones who get promoted are the ones who go to the pub with managers every Friday. Others get no look in with this. Older male managers promote younger female staff beyond their capabilities over experienced staff and buy them gifts like bottles of prosecco. The same older men who drool over the young women make disparaging comments about LGBT members of staff whilst pretending they champion diversity, aided and abetted by very senior Civil Servants. An example of this being called a "diva" when challenging homophobic language which compounds the homophobia. If you speak out you're threatened and told that you'll never work within public services again as they will blacklist you.
Having worked in modern Civil Service departments I can honestly say, thankfully, Land Registry was the exception and other departments are far more modern with much more diversity in management and robust procedures to give staff the ability to challenge behaviour. Do not challenge behaviour here as it could lead to the demise of your career.

Good team working environment
The most enjoyable part of the job are the people that work there, under pressure due to the nature of work and how much there is, always something to do. Varied role.

Great place to work. A lot of benefits, including flexible working and Civil Serivce Pension.
Slow-paced most times unless you are in the higher roles of management.
Lovely friendly staff - easy to get help when needed.
