Employee (Current Employee) – North Lincolnshire – 20 February 2018
Difficulty about leaving a review about this whole company is i only worked for a section. a section that the rest of the council doesn't really have much to do with. A typical day at work means coming in to some sarcastic comments and general slating from management then out in all weather for 8 hours on your own with half hour break for lunch before returning to find no management in sight. Pay is terrible for what you have to deal with from disgruntled 'customers' other colleagues are a good laugh and make the job somewhat bearable.
Endemic senior management bully culture in Adult Social care
Service Manager (Former Employee) – Adults – 9 April 2018
Worked here in a management position and left due to the culture at a senior level. All adults senior manegment have got each other’s backs, unqualified and make bad decisions that the workers have to deal with. Anyone who is successful in getting a position in a manament very quickly leaves due to bullying, cover ups and lack of experience of the whole management layer. Need to clear the decks completely at management level for decent workers to survive !
Learning Support Worker (Current Employee) – Scunthorpe – 9 March 2018
You can work hard. Do a really good job but still management and HR turn a blind eye to bullying. Job reviews taking place are rewarding managers who keep quiet and don't rock the boat. Good managers and staff leave due to frustration.
Senior Care Officer (Former Employee) – Commuity – 18 January 2018
I worked within the community doing rehab and disablement with elderly and hospital discharge patients. Also I worked in a residential unit with respite facilities. I learnt a lot about the service in general and the different areas to which social services contribute. Management were approachable and would assist where needed. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with ever changing rules and regulations,most enjoyable making a difference.
Apprentice Chef (Current Employee) – Scunrhorpe – 9 January 2018
They have provided a good amount of time for me to be able to complete my college studies as I have Fridays off work to do this. The work has been varied and I have learnt a lot about working in a full kitchen environment. The salary is only 1st year apprenticeship wage so £3.40 per hour. I have been placed on the redeployment list but a lot of jobs are casual, 10 to 16 hrs per week. I am completing my qualification early as I was given 18 months to complete and I am now on the last unit expecting to complete by end of January.
Includes a meal, is local so easy to get to and a good learning platform
No permanent job offer available at the end of my apprenticeship
Kept in isolation in a porta cabin ,once only saw my manager for 20 minutes in 3 whole weeks. The cabin even had bars on the windows. The job did not progress in over two years, in fact it went backwards, with less to do after two years than there had been initialy.
Teaching Assistant SEN (Former Employee) – Brumby Junior School – 2 September 2017
A good , stable organisation to work for. I have worked here for 17 years within education. I gained valuable work experience in different environments and across different key stages. I was able to go on training and do courses. The staff I worked with daily were all very friendly and we worked well as a team. I will miss them the most. It is a shame that cuts were made to support staff within this school and it will leave vulnerable and less able students with little or no support reducing their potential to succeed.
Mechanic Technician and Cover Manager (Current Employee) – Scunthorpe – 19 August 2017
This work place is like a lot of other public sector organisations, the management is poor and the staff are under motivated and under appreciated. The public sector is going through a difficult period with budget cuts and this contributes to the way in which they treat their staff, rather than discipline the staff they change things in the working day in order to frustrate their staff in order for them to leave. This allows them to remove senior members of staff and down grade jobs to save money.
I spent two years on contract working as an Architectural Technologist, using CAD and visiting site, discussing the brief with clients and ensuring the work was completed on time and to a good quality.
It was a very unsettled period whilst I worked for the council, due to funding.
Customer Services Advisor (Former Employee) – Local Link – 13 May 2017
Training was good and informative. Job security was unstable and job structure was constantly changing. This is is unsettling for everyone. Management were supportive. I loved my job role and was sad to leave but needed a more secure area of work. I moved to the contact Centre within the council; through the redeployment sceam. I did not enjoy the contact centre, this is very fast moving department with targets to meet performance reviews. It was a very stressful pressured environment, moral was very low. I did not feel supported in this role by management. My post was made redundant in 2015.

Cook (Current Employee) – Lincolnshire – 21 February 2017
This is a very enjoyable job. It requires the ability to work to deadlines. It can be a very physically demanding job as there is a lot of moving and lifting. The hours are very good if you have children.
free lunch, child friendly hours
holidays are expensive as you are required to take holidays out of term time
