Slough Borough Council is a professional place of work and i worked as a Liesure Facilities Officer.
This employer is very flexible and committed to their employees ensuring that the work timings are suitable for each individual employee relating to their situation. Their training is second to none and each employee is constantly trained on their work ethics.They have a union that anyone can join, an excellent pension scheme (superannuation) and good holiday entitlement. Progression within the Council is available when the employee is ready for it. It is monthly paid employment which is paid on the 15th of each month with London weighting available for all. My many years there was very much enjoyed and I would apply for employment there again if I needed to.
Car park available.
A service which is provided 365 days a year.
It was the most unfair place to work. Working for Slough borough council feels like being in some cult institution. The recruiting team need to let the work force shows as the community is. There are not enough mixture of culture but just one. I
They are a good employer, but senior management puts so much pressure on the staff at the bottom. The volume is also insane and they will never have the budget to get the staff they need
Normal working from 9 till 5 Teamworking and effective collaborations The management is very friendly and helpful The Council holds a strict dress code and no smoking policy on site.
Ongoing training and development
Sometimes you have to work the odd weekend.
The workplace culture is accommodating and the management are fantastic well organise and good to work with, the hardest part of the work is you have to visit site on compulsory deed and is flexible to work there is part of the enjoyable deed you will get, fantastic and enjoyable to work with the management.
complete the hour
I don't know how much experience the staff have for interviewing others, but from my experience some of the questions they ask are ridiculous. I feel as if they only recruit internal employees and just waste external public time just so they look good on paper and seen as adhering to "equal opportunities". Its a shame because I know some people with so much experience yet they recruit others who do not even know the basics.
Salary is ok
Recruitment process is rubbish
fulfilled admin duties as and when required. Support the HR Team with the project that entails the re-organisation of existing and new jobs. Responsible for checking, typing and filing job specifications for staff at all levels. Extracting data from spreadsheets concerning job scoring and high level HR information and investigating possible changes that may need to be made. Updating existing spreadsheets with new job roles. Answering customer (staff) queries over the phone and e-mail regarding changes to job descriptions.
I’m not actually sure what company it was that I worked for. It was about 3 years ago. However, although the papers was delivered I got the pay check but was unable to travel at the time to cash it up. So I practically worked for free.
Local, you can do your job when it suits you
Long hours depending on route
From the moment that I started to work for the oocal authority I received training and support. I coverd areas in Housing services; from management to repairs, rents and eviction. I then went into Ciuncil Tax & Housing Benefit as well as assesment. My last 5 years with the Authority I was lead in the My Ciuncil in Schools Admissions.
We were trained and kept up to date with the current laws
Sometimes we were understaffed
