Difficult job, difficult times.
Wellbeing Worker (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, Hampshire – 31 August 2017
I was lucky enough to work for the Council pre austerity cuts and worked within a dynamic and creative team delivering quality interventions to the people of Portsmouth. However during my time at the Council we were subject to some appalling management decisions which resulted in several colleagues leaving. After coming through this, the Team became subject to consultation and was eventually merged with other services as part of a cost cutting exercise. I feel this exercise failed, not only the people working within the team, but the very people we were employed to support. We were made several promises regarding pay and progression within the new team, none of which came to fruition and resulting in me leaving as a pay cut meant that I would not earn enough to cover childcare costs.
