Local Authority - with much political baggage
Retired Local Government Manager (Former Employee) – ENG – 19 December 2014
This is a moderately large Borough Council to the north of Leicester, within Leicestershire - the largest in the County with the exception of the City Council. There was pressure on all managers to reduce costs as much as possible, whilst the expectation was to maintain or even improve service. There was much made of the level of customer service, which was mainly due to dedication of the workforce in spite of management. Whilst it was a generally friendly workplace, there were significant areas where management were not wholly supportive, and on occasion, some were hostile.
