Secretary in Smethwick, West Midlands, England
on 17 June 2021
Productive and motivated staff who are fun to work with.
Working for Management and shadowing other staff is training on the job and skills obtained that remain with you and enable you to become a valued team/individual staff member. It creates a sense of pride and belonging. You become a member of staff who is seen and not overlooked, providing a high standard of service.

Employee in Oldbury
on 26 May 2021
Get out after 1.5 years
The departments are too small and overworked, plus nothing ever feels resolved as management don’t really to get involved regardless of the issues raised. Generally, not many people are willing to work as a team. The only real perk is that other companies will find you more employable because you’ve worked for a local authority. Generally expect to work remotely and in the office. What else to expect: - Low moral - Gossip and infighting - If you’re IT competent, prepare to be everyone’s personal IT department- Miscommunication - out of touch management - lack of resources - reluctance of positive change- panic whenever the word “restructure” is mentioned (medium-low job security) this happens frequently. - high turnaround of staff- use of the word BAME (misguided labelling)

A failure to deal with complaints properly. Lack of equal opportunities for training and progression. This was my personal experience. I found the environment oppressive.
