Various Positions in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire; Glasgow; and Edinburgh
on 5 January 2020
Challenging and Rewarding
You are usually given quite a high level of autonomy and applying yourself and working hard offers good progression. I worked for the SG for about 5 and a half years and in that time I attained 3 promotions.
Senior Officer in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh
on 3 November 2020
Bullying in management
Work subject interesting at times but work output dumbed down. Lack of free speech. Some competent staff and other career public servants; some good but some much less so and just protecting their positions and keeping seats warm. Managers protect long standing staff, some of whom do very little. If you are good at your job and perceived to be a threat you may experience bullying/being pigeon holed. Certainly some managers are very controlling in pointless matters to demonstrate their seniority. SG want to appear forward thinking but unfortunately quite the opposite. Could do with a complete overhaul. Many staff would have difficulty being employed elsewhere. Poor management/people skills from low level staff to ministers. Toxic environment. Could be a good place to work but management are blinkered. One day we hope there will be a shake up of staff.
Watch Manager for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service in Johnstone, Renfrewshire
on 2 December 2019
good strategies and protective to employees
Felt safe and comfortable. Kept to legal employment law. Would be flexible to time off. Friendly and family oriented. Gave all employees confidence to make the right initiative and fun community spirit. There was a good liaison with trade unions and management. Work ethics were encouraged and promoted. Opportunity to make a career for all personnel. Work environment was safe and cosy. Plenty of breaks in nice relaxing break areas. Medical supervision and resources made available to all personnel. Management approachable
POLICY OFFICER in Edinburgh, City of Edinburgh
on 15 October 2019
Flexible working to create healthy work/life balance
Coming from a background of not having gone on to college or university has not affected my managers view of me as I do my work. I feel empowered to share ideas and develop my opportunities.
Education Scotland - Intern in Glasgow City Centre, Glasgow
