Avoid like the plague
What an absolutely horrible place to work! The work is easy enough but is compounded by the disorganisation of the council. Management have unrealistic expectations and have an incessant need to change goal posts mid project. They are intent on micromanaging everything to ensure nothing comes back on them, they have no hesitation to throw people to the wolves to save their own skins.There is an atmosphere of distrust among the workforce, a lot of tiny little empires that people constantly trying to get one over on fellow workers .Senior team members do nothing but coast in their daily work and make new members of staff feel unwelcome as they are deemed a threat to their drawing money under the false pretence of work! Management bicker and squabble like children between themselves and team members. The organisation is an absolute disgrace and a shining example of how and why nothing seems to get done by local government. A real shame as there are some really nice and welcoming people within the organisation, unfortunately they are overshadowed by the bad apples.

Best council to work for
I worked for Wakefield Council for just over a year on the rehabilitation team in knotitngley. I couldn't of asked for a better set of people to work with. Line managers were all supportive and the overall managers were supportive always. Wakefield Council provided excellent training and training days were always accommodating. I was sad when I had to leave, I've never enjoyed a job so much in my life. A great service. You could always speak to management/colleagues in confidence about any issues in or outside of work.

Lovely place to work
Well led and managed, good work life balance and brilliant team work. No nasty office politics, really supportive and productive colleagues and managers.

my experience is poor, there was no training as promised, no support, asked to do tasked and no help there when required. Asked to do things against child protection legislation.
