Flexible working
Procurement Helpdesk Assistant (Current Employee), Martineau Lane, NorwichOctober 5, 2013
Pros: excellent benefits. flexible hours
Cons: work pressure. unsecure employment.
I enjoy the benefits of working for a government institution but in my view it's management is poor as are prospects for advancement are very limited in the current economic climate as central government demand more and more cuts every year putting jobs at risk and employees under pressure both in the amount of work and the constant threat of redundancy. – more... Despite this the benefits of flexible working are a big plus which does a lot to offset other failings in this institution. – less

Fun whilst learning
Adult Education course participant (Former Employee), Norwich, ENGSeptember 13, 2013
Pros: new qualifications and skills
Cons: need some experience now
I really enjoyed this course, a lot of it was down to common sense, but with the encouragement of the tutor and the other learners on the course I was able to complete all the modules. It has improved my confidence in the use of computers and I would now welcome the chance to build on these new skills. Therefore I am looking to do some voluntary work.

Professional, open and friendly workplaces
Inbound call handler (Former Employee), Norwich, ENGJune 10, 2013
Pros: making a difference to people's wellbeing. ensuring safe passage to/from school.
Cons: informing the vulnerable that they didn't qualify for our service from time to time.
1: Arranging transport for vulnerable school children via email and phone requests. Using the in-house systems I would co-ordinate and liaise with taxi, bus and private hire car drivers. The most difficult part was if there was no transport available, sometimes meaning that the child would have to walk at least part way home in the dark.

2: A similar – more... process for the East of Anglia ambulance service except we vetted them medically (it was a non-emergency ambulance service). That entailed the toughest part, informing an elderly person that they were not eligible for free transport. – less

Relatively well organised from my perspective as a teacher
Teacher (Current Employee), Norwich Road primary ThetfordJanuary 28, 2013
Pros: relatively secure with a pension
Cons: as a teacher i'm pretty deskilled to workin many other commercial sectors
Difficult to put in context. I'm currently a teacher in Thetford working part time in early years.I don't have a lot to do with other NCC workers,

Hardest part of job dealing with the shifting sands in education and having to adopt different priorities that sometimes do not seem to reflect the needs of children.
Most enjoyable achieving happiness and – more... well being through children's learning. – less

Overall, NCC is a good place to work.
Library Assistant (Current Employee), Gaywood Library, King's LynnJanuary 15, 2013
Cons: unfortunately, due to government cutbacks, i am unable to secure more hours.
Working as a library assistant is a very fullfilling job. One of the best parts is the interaction with the public, young and old, a rapport can be built with them.
