IT Support (Former Employee) – Nottingham, Nottinghamshire – October 16, 2017
My time with the council had to be the one of the best times I've ever had at work. I'd have to love to stay longer but my life changed and I had to move citys, if I ever get the chance to go back I would.
Service Support Assistant (Former Employee) – Nottingham – August 2, 2017
generally not a good place to work for, they stress out employees to the point of mental break down and dont take complaints seriously, whenever bringing up an issue with my manger it would not be taken seriously, but this review may be bad because i had a bad manager
A typical 9-5 role, as this was a summer intern role this gave me an insight into the real world of work. The organisation is highly professional and well managed. The most difficult part of the job was adapting to the working hours. Working with Nottingham city councils offers a wide variety of roles and an opportunity meet and interact with different people.

Information Officer (Current Employee) – Nottingham, Nottinghamshire – March 23, 2017
A nice open plan office with hard working and professional colleagues. Management is good, they try to help you progress. Workload is demanding due to cut in funding affecting staff levels but enjoyable to work due to the relaxed environment.
Working for the Nottingham City Council is always different. However, I do find I am repeating certain things throughout the days and times of working. Through working in the Council I have learnt Reception and gained my Level 1 swim teacher qualification. A typical day at Nottingham City Council is; opening the building, general cleaning, Life guarding the pool, setting up sporting activities and closing the building. The most enjoyable is seeing the confidence of people that do not normally go swimming improving every time they come along.
Window cleaner (Former Employee) – Nottingham City Centre, Nottinghamshire – March 17, 2017
Positive in regards to training, open door policy, hard working friendly staff. Everyone willing to share ideas to make the workflow proactive. When I worked for Nottingham City Council I had a good team of workers who worked hard to get the job done and a good manager
Rewarding job but undervalued by senior management
Senior Practitioner (Former Employee) – Nottingham City Centre, Nottinghamshire – March 14, 2017
A typical day at work was 9-10 hours minimum plus work over the weekend. There are limited resources and budget restraints but continues to be a need for services which have to be delivered. Management have no understanding of what the reality on the front line working with citizens of Nottingham City is and are too far removed to acknowledge this even when given evidence and data to prove this. Hardest part of the job was having to work alongside bully managers in other teams and there was no way of reporting them. Most enjoyable part of the job was working with citizens.
