Senior Admin Support Officer (Current Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne – 7 March 2017
A typical day at work would be busy and sometimes draining, however I enjoy the pace I have learned so many new skills and interacted with all walks of life Management in this job is fine to a certain level then I feel they become less interested at the higher levels Workplace culture is fine, everyone seems to get along and are helpful to each other The hardest part of the job is trying to get through all of the work with limited resource which limits the service you give to the people you need to support I love the fast pace, the people I work with and the fact that I feel I make a difference for not only my teams but service users
Leisure Attendant/Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne – 7 December 2016
I found working for Newcastle city council very calm and steady at first. Though as the years went on, there was a lot of pressure on your job because of all the redundancies and job cuts to cost cut for the council.
Unknown (Former Employee) – Unknown – 14 August 2016
Applied for several jobs here but no idea what they want from me. Jobs are only given to British whites and other ethnic minorities are always unsuccessful as they're looking for what to put in their equal opportunities file to let Ofsted inspectors know that they're inviting other ethnic minorities to interviews. Very sad indeed.

Cleaner (Current Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne, ENG – 31 January 2016
Monday to Friday I go in to work and start by cleaning the classrooms, then I clean the library, then on to the toilets. I have learned how to keep the public safe from any chemicals that may be hazardous to health. I get on well with my manager. I have a good working relationship with all of my co-workers. I don't consider any part of my job hard. The most enjoyable part of my job is having the satisfaction to know that I have created a safe and suitable environment for the public to work in.
