Reviews

Resourcer/support officer in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
on 18 April 2020
I work in a small, very supportive and hard working team with a good manager who delegates appropriately.
Good team environment where contributions are expected and valued. Good for work life balance, trading and career development. Very quick and efficient transition to home working at start of pandemic.

Great job security good lads relaced place to work
Good firm to work for bosses are a bit set in their ways but are better than anything in the private sector.It's a job for life relaxed Good hourly rate great hols full sick pay and a good pension, the hard part is the interview make sure you read the job spec and come prepared.
Support Worker in Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire
on 1 November 2020
Poor communication and bullying
No praise. Bullying. Dominating . Lack of truth and trust. Change of management in the 2019. Everyone began turning against each other in secret . Manager showing unprofessionalism . No positive behaviour. Lack of interest with support workers. Only a couple had a regular self one to one boost and reassurance about job security etc
Enforcement Officer in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire
on 19 October 2020
Excitement turned into a nightmare.
What can I say about Kirklees Council? Well I suppose I should thank my senior manager for giving me a brilliant reference and that she was very supportive. However that is where anything good ends.I came into the job having almost a decade in an enforcement role, I have dealt with many challenging situations but i was not prepared for what awaited me at Kirklees. Favoritism was rife in my team and supervisors would often lie and play staff off against one another. There was zero training, and other new starters really struggled to get to grips with legislation that we were tasked to enforce and would quite often be belittled for getting it 'wrong'. I was the victim of work place bullying and was told within 3 weeks of starting that I wasn't liked as I was too enthusiastic...this came from the mouth of my supervisor. I lasted 364 days in the job and i feel guilty for leaving my fellow colleagues behind in such an awful environment. I would strongly advise you get to know any department before you start and ask questions relating to how you develop. Staff turnover within the team was horrendous but no one at the higher levels ever questioned this. Be warned also thay Kirklees also pay less than other local authorities for doing the same job....If you have an interview I wish you the best of luck and I hope you end up not where I did.
