A toxic manipulative workplace culture
Ever watched "Brazil"? If so, this is what you should expect working at Manchester Council. Gaslighting, manipulation and ever changing expectations which aren't necessarily communicated as changes, rather they're dressed up as failures on your part. The unions are toothless there, as it's a Labour Council- they basically act as an unofficial mouthpiece for senior management, only challenge (weakly) on politically expedient matters, and on individual cases you might as well save your subs and hire a lawyer.

Great work life balance and characters
I really enjoyed my time working for Manchester City council. I have met some wonderful people on the way and I really feel the Manchester spirit working for the council. I feel they pay well and there is opportunity. The employers are fair and I believe they do help their staff. Overall a very pleasant and fair place to work.

Good benefits and job security. Very flexible and fun to work with teams. They offer pensions, additional holidays. I worked here for nearly 12 years. I have seen 2 rounds of voluntary redundancies.
Social Worker in Harpurhey

Awful place to work. Management bully agency staff
Awful management and will put you on the lowest pay grade they possibly can even though you're doing the work of a higher level! They have staff members on all different pay grades doing the exact same role! When you start they expect you to hit the ground running with no induction period, not what they say at interview when they tell you that you will be supported, have a full two week induction period and will shadow colleagues. None of that happened and I was pushed from day 1. Wasn't provided with any equipment to work from home which resulted in me not being paid when I was told to isolate because I had been in contact with someone AT WORK who had tested positive for COVID-19. No negotiation at all, was simply told that I couldn't work! Just because I am a agency worker, does not mean I should be treated any differently to the permanent staff. They pushed me to start on a date and then told me my equipment wouldn't be ready for at least another month! Very unfair treatment which put me in a really bad financial position and that was only the start of it! They played Russian Roulette with my wages every week, had to get out of there for not only financial reasons but also for my sanity! Micro managed all the time, daily calls asking what I had done, being told that if I don't put my visits on the system straight away I wouldn't be paid! Bear in mind I had no induction or training and this started on my second week of actually working there and that the permanent staff members were not even doing this! Bullying management style, bad service organisation, no support and threats about not being paid, which they actually followed through with. My advice to agency staff particularly, stay away! I've worked for Manchester City Council three times now and it was the same in regards to bullying management on both line manager and senior manager levels on all three occasions and also in regards to issues with pay and timesheets not being authorised in time for pay run. They don't care about the accuracy of your work, they just care about their audits being perfect and will push you into overdrive with absolutely no consideration for your mental health or wellbeing. It's no wonder that Manchester have the most complex cases! They allow the families to get to that point through bad staff management and training.Will never go back there again!
