Rural unitary council. Probably thinks it is better-managed than it actually is.
Does not have a Chief Executive, having instead 3 Exec Directors. Result is a lack of clear leadership. Organisation performs reasonably well, but lacks strong performance management, and could be so much better than it is. Pleasant working atmosphere, at least superficially. Hard to recruit to, due to rural location (Trowbridge in Wiltshire), similarly low staff turnover. A bit of a 'sleepy hollow', in many ways. OK if you want a relatively easy life, mediocre pay, poor prospects of advancement. Nevertheless, good public service ethos.
Nice working atmosphere, good modernised buildings.
Frustrating if you want to get things done. Frustrating that poor performance is tolerated.
