Good pay, pension and benefits including good Union.
Working for Norfolk County Council has many advantages. Recognition for good work Good career prospects Great level of customer service Supportive managers Great training programmes Flexible working Great holiday allowance and annual leave purchase scheme On site car parking at most offices
Less pay than private sector
No constructive training or support, have to fight to be heard and extremely demoralising culture. Team were nice but everyone having similar issues and nobody wanting to raise.
never had a problem, pay is good, holiday and ssp. brilliant company to work for, if there were more hours available i wouldn't need to look else were however i plan to continue with this job also
not nought hours for what i need
Dedicated, kind and good humoured colleagues. I would have benefited from more home working and greater flexibility. The office environment was at times noisy and hectic. Above all the council needs to sort the abysmal parking situation for mobile workers. Shocking and not helpful for business productivity !
low price canteen
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Norfolk County Council?
Work life balance is not recognized within the teaching industry, hard work is not noticed or rewarded. In my experiences initiative is frowned upon unless you are top management and opinions of the teachers are not heard or acknowledged.
Long holidays, competitive salary
Long hours, unpaid over time every day, lack of respect and support from parents and management.
I have work for Norfolk County Council for the last 9 years and left the my post because of the imminent redundancy in the department. The hours are fine with the typical day at work not involving overtime at any time. I loved to work with the public and was offered the basic training to fulfil my duets at work free of charge. Management was fair but not always cooperative or flexible in their thinking and approach towards the employees. Great work colleagues, good provisions.
Good work ethic
Only 1 year contracts available, low job security
Sadly what used to be a half-decent posting has turned into an utter nightmare due to the non-stop financial cutbacks, restructuring and very poor management at senior level(s). Many departments are being merged with staff being laid-off, hence you are being asked to twice the workload for exactly the same salary. NCC have even implemented fee(s) to park your own vehicle at work. Morale among staff is the lowest that I have ever known, and employees off work with stress-related illness is rife. Sadly employees are not appreciated by management who are now just concerned with budgeting and filling totally unrealistic work quotas.
Salary is moderate for the locale, Pension Scheme, Flexi Leave, Decent Holiday Entitlement
Poor management, Highly unrealistic and increasingly heavy workload, Salary is remaining static, Poor staff morale, Wholly unappreciative management, Lack of incentives, High stress levels
Before 2008 there were plenty of chances for progression. This was halted, understandably. There are great managers and terrible ones, it's pot luck what you end up with. That aside, a good place to work, lots of benefits and perks. Hard work will see you progress (eventually).
Free education, flexible working hours
Constant staff cuts putting additional pressure on teams to perform and reach targets with fewer resources. A typical day involved being aware of the overall outstanding debts and ensuring all debts were being actioned within the Councils debt policy guidelines. Making myself available for team members should they need guidance to resolve any issues. Attending court on behalf of the council and meetings with customers, departmental representatives or various internal teams. Debts for care services in later life are very difficult debts to chase. The costs of care are high and not something people always choose. Their health circumstances are a forced change for which they have no control over but still need to pay for. Due to the decision making processes within local government change is too slow to achieve the true benefits of any efficiency or monetary savings. My team were very supportive of one an other and committed to achieving the KPI's for members and the residents of Norfolk. The hardest part of the job was seeing how hard my team worked and the continual abuse they took from customers. Their debt portfolios increasing due to no fault of their own. The continual fire fighting The most enjoyable part of my role was supporting my team in anyway I could, helping customers to resolve issues and offering alternate was to settle their debts. Delivering the best service possible in a very difficult service.
final salary pension
stressful environment, long hours
I enjoy the benefits of working for a government institution but in my view it's management is poor as are prospects for advancement are very limited in the current economic climate as central government demand more and more cuts every year putting jobs at risk and employees under pressure both in the amount of work and the constant threat of redundancy. Despite this the benefits of flexible working are a big plus which does a lot to offset other failings in this institution.
Excellent benefits. Flexible hours
Work pressure. Unsecure employment.
