Interactive and open environment.
I was at Westminster Council as part of my school work experience for one week. I spent the time with various departments including environmental health, premises licensing and the communications team. The management structure was friendly but formal due to some of the health and safety reasons when working with the environmental health. The workplace culture was friendly and people were willing to impart advice on the various roles I fulfilled during my time there. The hardest part of the job was being in an unfamiliar environment compared to school. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting all the new people and gaining experience in a office environment, especially the trust put on me when I carried out research for the communications team on neurodiversity, something I had no previous knowledge on but was able to gather information and present it to the team. I received very positive feedback for this from the communications officers.
