    Interesting and challenging work. Good client base, lots of career and growth opportunities with further ways to get involved with projects and other work outside your remit. Very good work life balance with only 35 contracted hours per week.

    I found there to be a great deal of bureaucracy with so much emphasis on compliance, policies and procedures, reporting and box ticking that it made it difficult to service client to best of my ability.

    Advice to Management

    Please do keep listening to the ideas of employees. Keep sharing information in a timely way. Stop raising issues and then not dealing with them for extended periods of time.
