Good Workplace but Disappointing Relocation

When starting, there was a good team with good workplace culture. Management was open and supportive of new social workers for the most part. There was generous and flexible work arrangements as well. The real downside though, was the relocation package was really lacking with support to transition to living and working and London. There were many logistical issues and things were very slow to get up and running, so it was very disappointing to experience this especially from moving to London from overseas. HR basically ghosted me upon arrival with their support.


Great colleagues.


Disappointing relocation package.

I gained a lot of knowledge in a new area of work during my time with this employer which has been very valuable. It is a very fast paced environment which is not always condusive with a healthy work/life balance hence my decision to leave.
