Poor management/worker culture

There is a long established bullying culture at LBH. From my experience, any concerns about health & safety from individuals ( without support from your peers) is swiftly closed down by your manager. Your made to look like a troublemaker and not a team player. Career progression and promotion is hard to get, if you don't tow the mangers line.

Appalling team culture

The team I was in had a poor culture where one senior colleague controlled 1 manager and their decisions! This colleague would sabotage work and set you up to fail. really difficult to work with and used to scream and shout and bang his desk, his line manager who was sat next to him, ignored his behaviour! He had very poor relationships with other internal teams & no one respected our team due to his behaviour.

Productive and relaxed

The morning was looking at the support desk and then into meetings, being council get ready for a lot of meetings and PoCs before making decisions. The best thing with LBH is annual holiday and pension.

Hard working environment.

I would meet with my mentor on a day to day basis, we would then receive our job(s) for the day. Either we would be on emergencys which would include locating and fixing leaks, which could be very challenging especially if it is in a mainspipe under the flooring. If we are not on emergenceys we would be on "booked out" jobs. This could include fitting a bath, wash hand basic, toilet, sink or cold water storage tank in a loft. A lot of the job included talking to the residents to explain what was being carried out giving them the best satisfaction.

Pros

Something different everyday, a lot of communication needed.

Cons

Dirty at times.

This was a political position

If you can tolerate and work with politicians in order to do some good then this is the job for you. Your responsibility is to help the electorate in your ward with a variety of problems from anti social behaviour to planning applications.

Pros

Knowing that you have helped make life a little better for people

Cons

Working with politicians.

Working for LBH

I worked for the borough for a number of years. I found my job had the variety that kept me interested. The days were never the same and always kept me alert and on my toes. It was a busy and stimulating environment. I enjoyed the client group and had developed a good rapport. I began to like my job less and less towards the end- I saw a number of day services close. My travel to and from work was very time consuming and I used public transport as I don't have a drivers licence. .

Pros

interesting days out

Cons

the time used to travel to and from work

Lovely place to work

Again, there have been many changes to this work place - this is due to governmental funding - and therefore feel that 10 years after working for this place it wouldn't be right for me to say anything about the organisation. However, when I did work at the organisation, I loved working there because I had been there for a period of time and also loved the social atmosphere of the staff and young people.
