Great place to work. Competent managers, who are very experienced. Lots of freehand in assigned projects which shows staff are respected for the skills they bring. Skill sharing is strongly encouraged and undertaken. Lots of learning. Would strongly recommend working here.
good management, investment in employees, skill sharing
departments could be a bit more joined up
Working at Redbridge gave me the opportunity to learn new things in my department and this allows me to think of pursuing another career due to the training that I received. The top management does not recognise the staff efforts but the team spirit among the staff was great.
More exposure on the job role
Relaxed atmosphere and nice people to work with. The town centre is busy but there are loads of shops to choose from when going out to lunch. There is a car park close to many of the office buildings, so parking should not be an issue.
The London Borough of Redbridge has excellent leadership in both the Chief Executive and Leader of the Council. The balance of formality and informality is good and the support I received was absolutely fabulous. The hardest part of the job was leaving to go home and the most enjoyable was coming into work! There was no typical day, just exciting, challenging and transformational work with a great excellent leader.
A fabulous learning experience.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
I really enjoyed working for the cash office, because i enjoyed working outside meeting different people then going in to council buildings, schools, leisure centres and libraries. i learnt how to deal was a large amount of cash and how to process it also processing cheques using the whole of Microsoft.
Working in a primary school suits my family life. Being a single parent, it is hard to juggle work/personal life as well as studies. Being able to have holidays at the same time as your children is definitely a bonus but am prepared to work full-time now as my children are older.
The London Borough of Redbridge (LBR) is one of the smaller local authorities within London. It is considerably behind the majority of other boroughs in terms of innovation and development in all areas and this has created a very challenging environment to work in. Due to the previous Chief Executive and his team failing to take appropriate measures when the financial crisis took hold LBR is currently in the process of trying to find savings up to £60,000,000 over the next two years. This contributes to the challenging nature of the workplace environment. Senior Management continue to struggle to get to grips with the best way to guarantee these savings leading to regular changes of direction in policy and priorities making my role particularly uncomfortable. The best of the job for me is the autonomy I have within my role. I am not micro managed and this has allowed me to develop within the role over the years.
Autonomy within my role
Current working environment
I find the London Borough of Redbridge to be a good employer who are committed to improving the standard of life of their residents and to providing a working environment for their employees that encourages commitment and dedication.
