An organsation that does not abide by it's values and behaviours.
Depends on who your line manager is and if your face fits. BAD line management during a year when exceptions should have been made especially for new employees
Administrative Officer in Swansea
Be extremely wary of the DVLA Contact Centre in Swansea
I expected so much better from a Government Agency. The interview process was great, and the initial training period was great. The training was suspended for 11 weeks due to COVID-19 however, no fault of the Agency. I returned to socially distanced training, and I passed that. It was when I started on team that the problems began. I had ONE 1-2-1 meeting with my Team Leader between late July and January, which was bizarre and I reported my concerns about the content of the meeting to one of the higher managers. Accusations were made, which I was able to disprove fairly easily.My manager lied about the amount of additional coaching I received during Probation. I received next to no help whatsoever, and was left to fail. My manager passed a load of lies to a ‘Decision Officer’, to determine whether I should pass probation or not. These lies were easily disproved, but this was not looked into further by any higher managers.They failed my probation based on a pack of lies. There was no help from my manager whatsoever. The higher managers didn’t look into any of these issues raised in your appeal properly. They just send a load of pre-populated emails to you, informing you that the original decision stands.I appealed, and appealed, and appealed to no avail.I KNOW it can be a fantastic place to work, with great pay for the role and lots of opportunities to progress etc. I was not given any support, and the managers lied about it. If you have the right manager, I know the opportunities and support is there. My experience was utterly dreadful however.I know, deep down, that it’s a good place to work. IF your face fits. And, IF they can be bothered to provide you with additional support if needed. Getting the right manager is key. Mine was useless.
