Very supportive and friendly work environment with excellent work and training culture and although my post was only a maternity cover position with the knowledge that the post could end after 8 - 9 months, i thoroughly enjoyed my time working in Customer Support.

Varied job roles under one title. I have gained immense experience in various departments that I have worked for at Leicester City Council. Management varies depending which department you are working for, it could be a fast paced or relaxed environment. It is all related to workplace culture. Hardest part of the job is mix and match in an untimely manner which is really unsettling and lose of focus. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with the team!

I had to leave due to the stress,

To much work for amount of time


Most enjoyable working with children


Hardest fitting amount of work into time available.


This was my feeling when I left but does not reflect all of my time working for Leicester

Great people to work with. I have worked for the Leicester city council for many years and my only grumble would be the payroll. Not very helpful and you are always made to feel like you have done something wrong when all you have done is called for some advice.

Leicester City Council does not care about the people who are working for the council.
If they a member of management take a dislike to you. They will do everything they can to get rid of you. To the extent of lying and getting junior management to lie. No matter what you are how will you are at doing your job. Your gone.

Don't rock the boat.

I began with LCC in a pool of support staff . From my recruitment onwards , LCC were committed to investing in & encouraging the best from their staff . I learned so much more & broadened my existing skill sets with their support . I never encountered a manager , team leader or colleague within either the Lead Commissioner's Team , the Customer Service Team or Adult Social Care services with whom I worked , who was not helpful, likable & consummately professional by being so . I cannot say a "hard part " of the job with such a protective & supportive umbrella over me . Attention to precise detail was demanding but to equally expected . I can't fault LCC . I enjoyed my life and time and service with that authority . They seem to have their proverbial finger on the pulse where getting the best from staff is achieved with encouragement, support , compassion & treating them as adults. Personally Leicester City Council brought me into day to day contact with a broad spectrum of staff from multiple and diverse backgrounds . This could only serve to further enhance my education and development

I spent 6 months at the Leicester City Council Construction depot in Beaumont Leys between July and December. A typical day started exactly at 8.00pm and finished around 4.00pm. It was basically labouring duties, clearing over grown council owned land, gardens and public pathways etc. We did this by using council tools supplied. The hardest part of the job was working in hot summer conditions (outdoors) also cold and rainy conditions. I would also include in the hardest part, taking part in clearing accommodation of furniture after an eviction has been served (usually two weeks after the tenant/s have left). Most enjoyable part was working with some great characters and achieving completing the work given to us. It was tiring on occasion but overall I enjoyed it. It was a temporary contract of just six months.The average week lasted four days with every Friday off. I learned a different way of working, before I was an office worker of over 25 years so it was a big change. I would recommend it to someone between the ages of 20 - 45. I was 54 when I worked for them, and not in the best shape but I did try. It also depends on the people you work with. I was one of a team of 10 so getting on with people I would say is key. Hope this review helps someone.
