For nearly 20 years of work in the same college, I felt secure in my teaching job. However, I would rate work/life balance as 80% to 20%. Accessible but domineering management puts a lot of pressure on teachers especially with regard to time-consuming admin paperwork. On the positive side, there was a lot of CPD training which added to my IT and admin paperwork skills. I have also gained invaluable experience in teaching diverse and multicultural groups and awareness of the asylum and migrant system. The most notable and rewarding part of the job was teaching and my students' achievements.
Working as part of a team and responsible for various cleaning duties to ensure the cleanliness of the building. Complying with all proper safety policies and procedures when using cleaning chemicals. Making sure that COSHH regulations are adhered to on the use of chemicals, protective clothing and equipment
Great kitchen colleagues. We all helped each other. This job is ideal if you have kids at school as hours and holidays suit. I spent my 4 years at this job very happy. If you have any problems, the management are willing to do what they can to help. I only had one problem at another school kitchen but it was quickly resolved. Hard, fast work but worth it.
Lots of good hard working people there, however, also lots of people in posts earning 40k plus who seem to spend most of their time in meetings and offer very little productivity.
Constant job cuts - No promotion opportunities
Handling difficult situations working with a team and on my own. Cash Handling taking payments face to face and over the telephone. Most enjoyable working with the public every day is never the same working in a busy environment. Taking bookings and dealing with members enquires and inputting members data.
