Love the job, hate working every other weekend
there is no need to work every other weekend, keeping it to 1 in 4 was ample. You will lose good, reliable, staff for making them give up their personal time with their families.

Teacher
Good...job security, wage, job satisfaction, students are more or less brilliant

Bad...no work/life balance, no breaks, too much paperwork and testing, it ends up taking over your life.

Excellent worksite
I work in residential care for the elderly, it has been a pleasure working with the management and staff.

The residents are amazing people who we learn from everyday.


The hardest part of the job can be when there are staff shortages, this can cause stress as the dedicated care team try to meet all the social and care needs on an individual basis.

ASK ABOUT VERTAS AND CONCERTUS!!! The job isn’t safe and it’s not what you expect
If you apply for a job and you are successful for interview make sure you ask about “Vertas and Concertus because Derbyshire county council IS joining a venture with the above companies and you could be transferred over to them in which your pay, terms and conditions, Holiday, sick pay could all change, management don’t tell you anything about this and your left in the dark and the meetings you have are a waste of time as nothing is answered, I have now left because of this uncertainty of your job,

Poor management that doesnt support good staff yet bad staff are not dealt with. Managers dont listen to staff concerns and act on it.
Younger staff often bullied and no action is taken. Good staff members are lost as a result of managers lack of support.
DCC say they care about the wellbeing of the staff, they dont. Major problems are swept under the carpet and staff get picked on for small unimportant issues

Poor management, stressful, low moral, unsupportive management
Very stressful working environment with ever changing goal posts. Very high caseloads with poor management support. Favouritism of staff from management. Very poor staff moral with depressing unrealistic goals set that are hard to achieve. Made to feel anonymous and unappreciated as an individual.

Pros: good pension and holiday package. Ability to access internal training.

Too much expected of staff
I worked as a catering supervisor for DCC for a number of years and it constantly became a more demanding and stressful job. Management don't want to know how you feel about it, they just want to hear that you've got on with the job and all the changes they put into place. They don't care about the service user's needs or wants as much as they care about their paper work and audits! Staff opinions are not respected and they wonder why so many are stressed and taking sick days as much as they are.
So pleased to have left the company, but wish I didn't have to as the job could have been a job for life with the right support and care.

great secure job
I really enjoy my job role as a carer and i like working for DCC, it is very rewarding. I have to walk to my service users so i will get there whether its rain or shine i am there with a smile on my face ready to brighten up someones day. I have different routines each day as every persons needs are different but always face them and enjoy the challenges i have to face.
