A typical day would involve dealing with staff that need everything doing yesterday, making working on projects very difficult as priorities change constantly and have been known to change several times in one day.
I learned a great deal however my advancing skills is 95% self taught and only 5% official training, training budgets are available apparently but they don't seem to want to book it.
Management is too top heavy yet non-existent. Multiple managers doing the same thing but not talking to each other and wasting time and money micro managing.
The co-workers are what make it worth working for the council, some may get on your nerves but then you do spend more time with them than you do your own family!!
The hardest part of my job is lack of training and thus a frustration with not being able to fully utilise the systems/tools/staff available.
The most enjoyable part of my job is when I have time to actually work on my projects/jobs without interruption, which is very rare.
Lack of training, low pay
