Senior HR Officer in Durham
During my time as a temp here I worked with some good BPs and managers.Only problem was the people at my level were just nasty pieces of work and bullying.
Project Manager in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire
Chaotic, no leadership, cliquey
I worked for the Projects and Programme Team at Durham and Middlesbrough. I have never worked for such a disorganised department before. They employ people to fill and retain the headcount budget not because resource is needed so lots of people have nothing to do. They regularly promote their favourites through tokenistic interview processes when it’s clear to anyone who is going to be selected. There is an accepted culture of bullying with multiple grievances in the short period that I worked there. I would never recommend NECS to anyone, I was embarrassed to work there.
Service Desk Analyst in Durham, Durham
Thinking about working here? Stress levels in the service desk are insanely high. Targets are only manageable if the daily MI is avoided. micro managed at every chance by team leads who belittle staff constantly, treated as a child if you make a mistake. Training is listening to calls, with constant new work loads added to your daily tasks, no support from team leads, Who are always too busy to respond. Expected to learn knowledge base updates without been told they have even changed. New staff constantly need training by staff trying to take calls, which results in more call volumes for remaining staff. It's all about saving money and having the minimal staff to cover call volumes.
Privatisation at its worst
This is a Capita type organisation feeding off the public sector like a parasite. The staff are not qualified or capable to do the jobs asked to do but form cliques and blame others.
Finance Officer in Durham, Durham
Treat temps not very well
Treat temps not very well, monotonous jobs to do, good at making sure that you keep to your hours of 37.5 per week, if you work over you get these back during the quiet period after month end
