Interviewed via Teams as covid was effecting normal routines. Had three interviews whilst being whittled down from all applicants. Got the firm offer, started less than a week later. Maybe a little too fast paced start as laptop took a couple of weeks to catch up. Enjoying the work, the colleagues and the fun culture here. Work is rewarding and challenging but I expected and wanted that to be the case. If you get the offer of a management role here grab it with both hands

Productive and fun work place
Its a great place to work very organised in regards to materials and day to day work planning, Great team of colleagues on the team im working with who all work hard but can have a laugh at the same time. Even with the current pandemic things are straight forward and running in lines with government guidelines so you feel safe coming to work.

A typical day at Ian Williams you start up with 50 emails about trying to Persuade Head Office to allow a unit to purchase a item cheaper from a non supplier. Then you have to find the correct forms to fill out after they amend it for the 10th time. There is a lot of competitive culture where head office creates tallies and tables who has done the most work. Everyone is trying to out do their colleagues to be noticed by the directors. The Management is too top heavy that during my time people/departments were suddenly disappearing and new outsourced companies where being used. Ian Williams has contingency plans they know what type of business they want to be you just need to know if your job is going to be in it. If you do not fit in the workplace by standing up for your self you will get bullied. The hardest part of the job is to meet the demands the management has set last minute because they have to much to do the work has been forgotten about so to keep the client happy they make you work through your lunch or make you feel bad for having lunch. The enjoyable time was back in the first years of working for Ian Williams when they were a small family run company.
