A good place to work. P
LCC is a good place to work, however because many of its functions have to fit into a statutory framework, and roles are very specific, it struggles to change. It can be frustrating to see opportunities for positive change which aren't embraced by managers, because change often requires extensive extra work and evaluation, with no resources available to do it. Therefore there is a tendency for people and things to stay in their silos. Some (many) of the senior managers are stiff types who could and should loosen up a bit. It's as if someone told them that fun is banned in local government. That said, it's a secure place to work and their policies and procedures are protective and fair.

Fantastic place to work
I have been working in my team for 2 years now. I love working with children and families with disabilities. I find it challenging but rewarding at the same time. I'm in a really supportive team. I have a very good work life balance. I have a case load of been 22 and 19. This is manageable caseloads. There is lots to lure. Complex Child in Need, child protection, children in are care and mental capacity.

Not good at all -find it a waste of life ambition (apart from the wage most frustrating and very rarely rewarding.
emphasis on learning the job but if its not a job you like and your there for money then they judge you on the fact that they think you are motivated by the job and not the money!! lack of understanding of work life balance and promotion on logitivity in post - which is OK some times but not at others - but its almost a policy.. complete over burden ON "Political correctness " to the detriment of all protected characteristic's fighting it out for who's the worse off!!

Hard work
Rarely see a manager, just get directives online. They work you really hard which makes the job really stressful and I find that I make mistakes because I don’t have time to think. The menus they provide are not brilliant, but at least they don’t seem to mind if you alter them in line with what your pupils like. They expect you to finish everything half an hour after you have served your last customer so you have to really rush to get out on time.

Primary education based questions

Shared on 3 December 2018

They ask all about your previous working experience, see how you react to pressure questions. Followed up by a sample lesson with children to see how one copes with this quite stressful occupation.
