Poor place to work
The union is running the company by bullying tactics used on people that don’t agree with there wants. The union Stuart's only care about what they want not what is right for Newham tenants. The Council need to toughen up and Say NO to the Unions weekly requests for a easy life and tell them to move forward with the rest of the industry

Delivery driver
Worked for a sub company for newham council as a delivery driver part time with a regular route and routine I was on time for all delivery. No problem then a colleague resigned and without notice I was given his round with the same start and finish time for no extra money I was obviously late for some delivery and got blened for being late by the clients so I resigned

Lacks absolute professionalism
You cannot trust anyone in this council as they do not recognise or reward those that deserve it instead it is who they know gets up the ladder and it is all about favouritism. Not a single staff is happy working for this council

Fun work place
There would be a meeting every morning and we were put into small groups. This helped me become punctual and meet deadlines as efficiently as possible, as well as this it also helped me work in small teams and large teams where we would have to communicate constantly to solve problems of different levels.

Not sure what im supposed to write in this box
Newham Council was a great place to work before the redundancies started. I'm not sure how it is now but it was a great place to work. As I was working with a number of schools in the Borough most of my time was spent out of the office delivering training sessions and attending meetings.

Fun workplace
Every child can achieve their highest potential with the help of tutors who are doing their best to deliver excellent tuition to them. With a little bit more help the company could be well organised. Maybe they should provide more opportunities for admin workers to help tutors out. Communication between tutors and office can be improved. Excellent opportunity both for children and tutors to become wonderful musicians.

I liked working here because of the team - I learned a lot of skills but how they treated us as a diverse team wasn't the best. the hardest part would be the amount of work we received on a daily basis.
Pros
good team
