Friendly staff and Good Training ground

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.

Pros

More exposure on the job role

Cons

Poor facilities

Nice place

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.

Pros

Nice colleagues

Cons

Inviting, caring, challenging and fabulous leadership.

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.

Pros

A fabulous learning experience.

Cons

None.

Good company to work for

In the 30 years I worked for the borough, there was very good work ethic, everybody worked as a team. The borough as a whole, whatever department you worked in, was like one big happy family.

Fun and Friendly Environment

LBR is a fun and friendly environment. The people working there were helpful and friendly and were nice to talk to. There can be good days and good days as expected with any job but is definately worth the time.

Poor pay, but loyal

Not the best paying London Borough but loyal and surprisingly low turnover of staff. Most office jobs now centralised in Ilford. Would be happy to work there again.

Challenging but exciting

Dealing with customers who were making their first property investment was an eyeopener. I learnt a lot about government legislation, organising conferences, dealing with complaints as well as service charge queries.

Working in school suits my family life

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.

Difficult place to work

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.

Pros

Autonomy within my role

Cons

Current working environment
