    Former Employee - Senior Data and Information Officer in Worcester, England (UK)


    Open plan, bright office space Pleasant surroundings for lunch time socialising and walks Good flexi-time working arrangements Good annual leave Positive, collaborative environment. Not very hierarchical. Clear and transparent pay structure Great in-house training opportunities if you desire project management, IT skills, etc. Fairly good job security, even in current climate.


    Pay is lower than comparable positions in private sector. Jobs are strictly in set pay-bands, so once you get to top of salary band you must leave the job to progress. Most vacancies are automatically advertised externally irrespective of internal talent or promotion-seeking employees, so you must apply for more senior posts as an external candidate and compete with everyone. Moving within council is regarded by management as resignation and move to a new external post. Good job security does nfortunately mean that some less-than-great employees are sort of "unflushable". Incompetence in these employees is known of, and bore by rest of their team.

    Advice to Management

    Promote "One Council" vision in recruitment and career development processes. If someone wants to move one rung up on the ladder at the moment, there is very little incentive for them to stay within the council even if they want to. Moving directorate usually involves formal resignation, formal acceptance of new offer, completing several payroll and other forms, reapplying for another CRB check (if applicable) and so on.
