Flexi time is an additional way to take time away from work without requesting annual leave. The departments are not always trained to the best of the their abilities.
Pros
Flexi time
Cons
Not a great opportunity for progression.

What used to be a lovely place to work for us just like any other corporate company . Lack of staff retention, staff expected to deliver several jobs for one salary is the norm now.
Pros
Good work life balance
Cons
Low salaries, lack of career progression

Friendly staff and a variety of great projects. A brilliant place to learn, develop and forge friendships for life. Some long hours required, but plentiful job satisfaction.

Providing one to one support for children with learning disabilities is very rewarding. Constantly working with these children on a day to day basis has developed my understanding of their needs and educational development. This job has provided me with opportunities to converse with professionals such as Educational Psychologists and Physiotherapists which has improved my insight in helping these children. The hardest part of my job was that the pay was not ideal for the work that was expected. I really enjoyed engaging with children and watching the grow and learn.

Greeting visitors and helping and teaching them using online resources how to use a computer. Answering the telephone and taking session bookings. Entering visitor information on database on a daily basis. I have learnt new computer skills and have gained valuable customer service skills and experience. Worked as a team with manager and other co-workers, creating a relaxed and fun learning environment. Not always having the knowledge to help, but gained this as situations came about. The most enjoyable part of the job was when I was able to help a visitor achieve their objectives and when they showed their appreciation of my help in them accomplishing this. I gain great satisfaction from knowing that I have been able to help someone gain the computer skills and knowledge which will help them in their daily lives.
Pros
Friendly and Relaxed environment with opportunities for training.
Cons
Manual paperwork to be completed at time of visitor registration process.

This has been the most challenging and rewarding time of my life, dealing with people from all walks, being able, where possible to assist and improve and support people. During my time, I have been able to assist the homeless into homes, meet senior business leaders from across the community and even be of assistance to some, starting the "Meet the Buyer" event in Eastleigh. I have learned much about how local government works and its relationship with the community and business.
Pros
Challenging and every day different
Cons
None that I can think of
