Procurement Officer, Leicester - 9 January 2018
Was on the graduate scheme back in 2016 and was working in procurement services. After a month I was given a manager who was only in 3 days a week and had a busy schedule themselves. I felt that I was not given long enough to understand the role and how procurement worked at the council. At my probation my manager just let me go saying that I had only made 'minor improvements' and my performance was not satisfactory even though I felt that I had to been given full support or formal training in how to do my job properly. Was a shame as the people in the office were very nice.
