Local authority in a lovely setting

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I have worked for WCC for 7 years in a few teams and have found that there can be quite a bit of bureaucracy, although decision making processes are being streamlined and made easier for people trying to work within the system. Worcestershire is a lovely area to work in compared other more urban cities. County Hall has lovely grounds and the fab cafe at the Countryside Centre.

Safeguarding social worker

Good place to work overall although this can be dependent on management of whom there can be a very high turnover. Some of these are excellent; others not so much. Council will restructure fairly regularly dependent on Ofsted and this is not always a good thing as it can create uncertainty and high staff turnover. Work life balance is good as you are able to work from home at times. It did feel as if more could be done to retain social workers rather than keep employing more.

Pros

Flexible working

Cons

High staff turnover and variable management experience
