Good opportunities but poor work life Bala

Poor work life balance and pay for the amount of work you do. However good opportunities for training and skills if the have funding and enough courses to go around




Long hours

Monotonous work

Long hours which change based on demand within the last hour of shift if management have messed up staffing. On the small amount of jobs where you can make a difference it feels good. Otherwise most jobs are just ticking boxes until it all repeats

Got worse

Used to be a good place to work but culture of policing now makes it much harder to do a good job. Can be fun and colleagues make it easy to have a good laugh but the hours are long and the pay doesn’t reflect the risk carried with the job .


Good colleagues


Minimal support
