Productive yet relaxed.
I enjoyed my time working for Hartlepool Borough Council. I always found myself motivated to work to the best of my ability despite a lack of targets to achieve. This was in part due to a relaxed atmosphere that trusted staff to complete work. That is not to say the job did not have it's difficulties. There was always a steady stream of work, as well - more ... as being understaffed, however I felt that I could always ask for help and given the ability to complete my work.
Management would always try to help you to complete any work to the best of your ability. Any request for extra training was alway ... - less
ProsRelaxed atmosphere, great colleagues, opportunities to progress
ConsMajority of opportunities are fixed term contracts
