Very supportive and friendly work environment with excellent work and training culture and although my post was only a maternity cover position with the knowledge that the post could end after 8 - 9 months, i thoroughly enjoyed my time working in Customer Support.

The job was easy and the training opportunitys far exceed any other workplace.Able to buy holidays and work flexible hours. Work van all paid for. Their is a culture of moaning with the council but the benefits and pay are much better than can be found in private company's.

The job itself is good and easy. Good communities and generally no trouble but some of the management is poor. Treated unfairly and a lot of blackmail by manager. Ie if you want holiday do this.
Pros
Lots of breaks and good pay
Cons

Varied job roles under one title. I have gained immense experience in various departments that I have worked for at Leicester City Council. Management varies depending which department you are working for, it could be a fast paced or relaxed environment. It is all related to workplace culture. Hardest part of the job is mix and match in an untimely manner which is really unsettling and lose of focus. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with the team!

Great people to work with. I have worked for the Leicester city council for many years and my only grumble would be the payroll. Not very helpful and you are always made to feel like you have done something wrong when all you have done is called for some advice.

Leicester City Council does not care about the people who are working for the council. If they a member of management take a dislike to you. They will do everything they can to get rid of you. To the extent of lying and getting junior management to lie. No matter what you are how will you are at doing your job. Your gone. Don't rock the boat.

It would be nice to paid unsocial hours and paid double overweends. Interviews should not made hard for applicants. They should be given achance to develop their careers
