Services Assistant Level 3 (Former Employee) – Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire – 5 November 2017
If your face fits and you can shout people down you will get on well with East Riding of Yorkshire Council. If not, then possibly you won't. Longevity of service means nothing at the end of the day & if you are off work for more than one long term absence due to a disclosed congenital condition, then don't expect any sympathy from this organisation.
Don't get me wrong I enjoyed large parts of my time & there are some very nice and pleasant senior members of staff within this employer but this service was hampered by periods which were not so pleasant & there are too many Managers who don't listen. whatever the known outcome even if they have been told repeatedly, whom are too wrapped up in their own self-importance & delusional place in society to do the right thing.
HR Advisor (Current Employee) – Beverley – 29 April 2017
Fantastic people who I work with. Team hampered by high rate of turn around due to low pay and very little job security. Team leaders do a great job. Upper and middle management have no idea and paid far too much. Upper management given 'golden hellos' and outrageous allowances whilst they refuse to help the lowest paid. Very little encouragement or gratitude if your job is done well. Quick to criticise and punish.
I loved working for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council
School Cleaner (Former Employee) – Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire – 24 April 2017
I really enjoyed my Role as a School Cleaner for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.I found this role to be very satisfying and often quite interesting as you never knew what challenges you would have to face on a daily basis.
Always an enjoyable place to work.
Sometimes the bus journey to work was a bit tedious.
External Funding Technical Officer (Current Employee) – Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire – 12 April 2017
Since working at East Riding of Yorkshire Council I have greatly improved my confidence and realised my full potential. This is due to highly supportive and caring team that I work with who genuinely want you to succeed in and outside of work.
Support Services Team Leader (Former Employee) – Bridlington and Beverley – 10 April 2017
Great variety of work to go for. Sometimes guilty of change for the sake of change, but a lot going on in the council at the moment.
I worked in Support Services. Very supportive line managers and they do try to get the best out of you. Work is varied and you'll be expected to cross train to give flexibility on cover. Training is provided and support is always there.
Secure work, good benefits
If you don't like a regular change this may not be for you
Civil Enforcement Officer (Former Employee) – Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire – 7 February 2017
Don't be a civil enforcement officer!! All target focused if you don't issue enough tickets your in the bad books! Which is illegal by the way, no respect from management they treat you like a piece of poo on the bottom of there shoe
Tree Surgeon (Former Employee) – Willerby – 24 November 2016
On arrival of my first day with the council there was nobody to greet me or take me through the induction process. I was expected to provide my own PPE for the first six months until I ceased to use it and had to lodge a complaint before I was issued any PPE. The bosses are uncompromising and do not want to know once you start. Despite the bosses claiming an open door policy they will not have time for you, listen to or make any attempt to ressolve issues, including health and safety concerns, or at least until pressed to do so by the trade unions. ERYC policy must be adhered to at all times but is not readily available to read. Overall the worst job I have ever had and would advise staying well clear unless desperate for a job. Hull City Council treat their employees much fairer.
all employees seem stuck in their tracks with little chance of moving unless you are in management
Site Manager (Current Employee) – Goole – 25 October 2016
Ok if you are at the top of your pay scale or are one of the managers or officers working from the headquarters at county hall - Beverley., but there is little scope or prospects for the working class at the bottom who seem to be forgotten (especially at pay rise negotiations - 1% at minimum wage is peanuts but at £50K + it is worth having)
Free work Wear ( which they are duty bound to provide anyway)
Care Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Bridlington, ENG – 13 November 2015
Hard work, but have some good co-workers who are helpful when you need advice. Learned alot over the years, especially having to move with the times with different legislations and computer systems. I mostly enjoy meeting people.
Pick up students and take to education/work experience sites learned to interact with young people and my way around the east riding. Line manager brilliant and understanding, senior management completely useless and un aware of local conditions. Co workers a good group always helping each other out.. Keeping to time and coping with the other road users. Having a laugh with the students seeing the beautiful countryside
Good freindly group towork with good line manager
Senior management totally unaware of local conditions
