The job is fine, i work front of house however there has never been any promotions from the staff on front of house in my 6 years. The supervisors have stayed the same or they have hired from elsewhere. I would never know if there is chance for job progression. Good student job though and great managers.
No job progression
Had 2 jobs within the council and both jobs were not as described in interviews. Want more from you than required, vary rarely help you with anything work related. Pointless asking anyone for help or advice from management as they have zero experience and knowledge of what to do. Training is a joke.
It is a popular employer and there is competition to get jobs and to keep your job because the City of Edinburgh Council is such a well renowned employer. For permanent employees there are many add-on benefits but as a temp, you receive s minimal salary and you can expect to be blamed for everything and there is a good chance you will allow a culture of bullying around yoirself. It is not institutionalised, just human nature.
I found the work amazing, The management frustrating, unsupportive, had to ask all the time for advanced and up dating training. and for uniforms. Other collegues in general supportive but as we all felt over stretched and exhausted
Good working hrs, and holidays
Not supported, isolating work
I worked as care worker in the community for several years great job but it could be stressful dealing with up to 15 clients per day as you got to do a lot in30 minutes which is not a lot a lot but otherwise great job and lovely people you meet
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Don't have permanent contract

Ensuring the safeguarding of all leisure centre users. Continual Interaction with public to maintain a safe and enjoyable experience for all users. Fully trained in all aspects of first aid which has had to be deployed on several occasions. In addition, fully trained on all aspects of the cash desk and computer booking systems
As above.leader ship cud be better...a lot of uncertainty..but good pay and benefits can make it good place to work..good network of any issues in or out work.support can be there but tend to be time consuming .
Wages were really low. The atmosphere was grim when I was their due to there being rumours of redundancies. The canteen was expensive & so was the coffee
It was good to be helping people in regards to workmen being requested.
It was extremely repetitive
If had been offered contract to take me away from agency would have given me alot more security never recieved this with bein there 2 years. Its discrimination against agency workers, we carry out the same tasks, have less rights at work than official council employees.
