I worked at Southwark Council full-time (More than 10 years)
Excellent training dept, prospects & promotion were good for staff. A diverse workforce that reflected the borough. Diverse & dynamic.
Overall a LA that invested in it's staff, had a vision for the future. Well resourced, committed managers, who were helpful, flexible & supportive.
Very high levels of deprivation, transient population. A difficult place to be a front-line social worker. But an authority that liked to see things through.
Advice to Management
Remember that your staff are your greatest asset. Remember to keep investing in the future...
I applied online. I interviewed at Southwark Council (County Line, NY) in November 2015.
This was a simple job of copying text from three PDF documents to word 2007. This job is an online job. The employer was so impressed with my CV that I was offered the job immediately and began the process of finishing the task at hand. The experience was interested.
The overall experience of this interview was very rewarding.
I was able to ask for the salary that would fit my qualifications.
