Business Support Officer in Nottingham

Limited opportunities for development or advancement

It is an unfortunate truth that whenever the council needs to make 'savings' due to the increasing financial challenges it has faced over the past several years, administrative staff seem to be considered the most expendable as does the development and remuneration of existing employees. As a result, opportunities for development or advancement within Business Support roles has stagnated at the council. In the current climate, you are unlikely to move up the ladder within Business Support, and despite being Labour-led the council does not actually feel particularly pro-worker (the council spent hundreds of thousands on a court case and appeal it eventually lost, but is still resisting paying out all of the back pay it owes to affected staff). If you are satisfied staying on the same grade you came in on, with little chance of promotion or hopes of a fair pay rise, you might be happy working here. The holiday allowance is decent in comparison to private sector employers and flexible working options are often available for back-office staff, depending on your service area. If you want to be developed professionally and advance in the organisation, or even just be paid in line with what your skills and experience are actually worth, you may want to look elsewhere.

Very business oriented for a local council

It would be a nice place to work if they didn't micro manage you. Always looking at making money it's run like a business not like a local council it's main priority is making money and making the public suffer.

Not a good place to work

If face fits then you'll get looked after. Everyone talking about each other and spreading rumours. People refusing to work on certain rounds as there are big. Wages is not good but you only work 37 hours but often you'll do less.
