I have been working at Surrey County Council full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Supportive and knowledgeable line managers.

Cons

Very inconsistent and confusing company policies. No attention to detail. Low level of responsibility and accountability from HR, Accounting, IT departments. Sloppiness and laziness of administrative staff spoils social workers' ability to perform and excel.

    Pros

    Surrey County Council is a great place to work, being such a large organisation offering a multitude of services to residents there is a real diversity in the people working here. I get the opportunity to work with people from a whole range of professions, from Social workers to accountants, HR to Estates, Procurement and highways staff, care workers and library staff.

    There is a lot of change occuring particularly at the moment, and SCC is striving to become World class in its services and operations. There is the opportunity to try new things and learn from others and there is a huge investment in learning and development with the highly regarded STARS training programme.

    Surrey is an award winning local authority looking to do things differently and offer the best services to the residents it serves, being a part of this is hugely rewarding.

    Cons

    Sometimes SCC can be bureaucratic and things take time to get moving, however the appetite is there to change and if you are someone who wants to be a part of doing things differently then SCC is a great place to be.
