Temporary contract as a Support Advisor in Worcester, Worcestershire
Friendly place to work, busy open plan office.
People friendly, helpful free on site parking. Economical restaurant and shop for snacks. Although I only worked there for three months on a temporary contract, I would have liked to have stayed but they didn’t have a suitable role.

Educated people with low intelligence
Job it self is very educational but staff that is in charge in NE is very low in intelligence. The only one way to get a full time job up there is when you know someone who work there full time or you very good friend with them outside of work. I call it begging for company or they always seek for acceptance and attention.
Support Administrator in Worcester
Really no leadership and very high turnover of staff
No one stayed more than a few months.
No real leadership and never any thing much to do
Very over staffed and no training provided
Multiple mistakes made and no one really took responsibility
Advisor (EO) in Worcester
Good, but need some fresh thinking
Great place to work, lots of benefits - 33 days A/L + all bank holiday and flexible working allowed. However, culture is a bit old in general, needs a bit more fresh ideas when it comes to management. Most of the permanent staff have been there for decades.
Catchment Sensitive Farming Advisor in Worthing, West Sussex
Great cause. Terrible Organisation
Most good aspects are ruined by a careless attitude to employees welfare after leaving the organisation. NE mislead me at recruitment phase, stating that higher level roles would be made available for more money (higher level roles were made available but salary was capped to equal that at my entry point - regardless of ability). This led to my resignation. 5 months after leaving NE tell me they made a mistake and actually overpaid me for a period of 3 months: demanding payment of a substantial sum of money (via their service provider: SSCL). I don’t have the money, and I honoured every part of my promise and contract. I had no knowledge they were making this error. I adjusted my spending according to my bank balance. I have been threatened with debt collectors and my family have no idea how this will end. NE have been advised by their lawyers not to communicate with me. They have admitted their mistake but will not accept responsibility. We have suffered from months of dispute. I gave them 1 year of excellent service and this is how they repay me. Summary: Excellent Cause, some great people doing great things, but terrible organisation due to a few people making corrosive judgement calls.
