    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Wiltshire Council full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work in a fantastic building that really buzzes. Everyone is really busy and working very hard but despite this I feel valued and supported and there is a real commitment to deliver good services. The building I work in means we can all see why we are here - the community are invited in and this creates a good atmosphere. The flexible working is great and when you have other responsibilities you can work flexibly. I have just got my new laptop and this has made a difference - so the technology is even better than it was.

    Cons

    Car parking will become an issue and the senior managers need to be clear about how this will be addressed. Many of my colleagues travel long distances to get to work and options in terms of alternative travel are very limited as public transport is an issue. Flexible working will help but not solve this issue.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key so focus on this and staff will stay engaged. It has been much better recently and the staff forum was better but honest feedback is needed in all communication from top to bottom.

  • We received fantastic feedback from our first EmployAbility Fair held on the 7 November:

    "It was a life changing event...I cannot overstate how wonderful it was to find so many positive people so willing to look at ability (not disability)...an amazing outcome that left us walking on air!"

    First Trowbridge EmployAbility Fair is a success

    TROWBRIDGE employers were helping promote job opportunities and routes to different careers for people with a disability at County Hall on Tuesday. Wiltshire Council's first ever EmployAbility Fair drew in more than 100 people, who got to speak to employers and service providers at nearly 30 different stalls, all offering advice and support.
