I worked here for nearly 2 years and can honestly say I had anxiety by the end of it! The 'management' consist of some people that have been there since school and never went anywhere else as they are just about qualified to answer phones. Now they are 'team leaders' because no one else wanted the job and lord it over people like they are in an amazing job and really important.
You have to click yourself off if you need the toilet as a comfort break and I have known one particular manager time a member of staff and then go and find them. Who's to say what type of toilet they were going for??!! Totally unacceptable.

The fact that the staff turnover is ridiculously high speaks for itself.

A lot of people were signed off by their doctor with depression and working in a basement of a library is not going to make for happy staff. The money is shocking too. They advertise at up to £23-24k. I got no where near that.

All in all stay clear.
Pros
Some of the down to earth staff were good people
Cons
Everything else

Management terrible. Doesn't listen to staff issues. Cover up issues rather than sorting them out. No job satisfaction. Working out of a library, not the place for homeless clients to be attending. Very high turnover of staff, most of them temp staff. This must be costing the local authority quite a bit of money.
Pros
Nothing

Nothing
