Working in school was rewarding because of the children. Leadership was good but the pay was not enough for the effort that is put in by staff. Lots of opportunity in the county council in general but not within individual schools.

I learned a lot I had on the job training learnt new skills, it was a primary school kitchen, very busy , had great training , the job was very rewarding, the staff was friendly , the hardest part of the job I think was trying to convince parents about healthy eating in the area the school was in.
Pros

Overall WCC generally provide a good service and make it easy to work with them. In Social Care staff turnover has been an issue but is definitely improving.

Worked here 23 years and it got worse as time went on. No work life balance and stressful in most if not all services. Council no longer offers job security.

It is a shame that the Team was made redundant and we all lost our jobs, due to going out to the Private Sector. The team spirit was great and one of cooperation, but sadly this was not valued “at the top”.

Each day varied, as I worked across the county and sometimes at weekends.

Lovely to see couples getting married. Really enjoyed face to face contact with customers.

All the benefits of the organisation and the location are an will continue to be affected by ongoing public spending cuts, so job security should not be expected.

Great place to work, lovely team, good hours, fairly flexible.

Only downside is the work is very easy and not very challenging, not a clear progression path.

Budget cuts repeat year on year,very under managed minimal training for part timers.rushed supervisions no time for personal issues to be supported .
10 years of my working life put into youth work and only to be treated like rubbish by upper staff. Best part is the kids I've helped over the years at least they have benefited and are grateful.
