    I have been working at Wiltshire Council full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities for learning and development. Flexible working is a big plus, being able to start and finish at different times, love it. Supportive managers who are there to provide guidance and support, frequent 1-2-1s also track progress. The trust that managers have for their staff is great, from my first day I felt apart of the team. County Hall itself is a nice building to work in, being a lover of food, the atrium offers quite the selection.

    Cons

    Cuts to the budget, although not really Wiltshire Council's fault here.

    Hot desks at times can be a little bit annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

  • Wow! Were we excited to see ex-Pussycat Dolls Kimberly Wyatt make an appearance at County Hall, Trowbridge this week. The Atrium was certainly full of excitement and noise as 450 primary school pupils from local schools attended to see her launch her new book
