“Excellent, friendly social work department”

The best thing about working for South Lanarkshire Council's social work department was the spirit of friendship between colleagues and team workers. As a smallish department at the time I worked there, management was easily approachable and senior social workers were available at all times to provide assistance and feedback - not just at supervision sessions as in some other Council's Social work offices that I've worked in. At the time I began working there, several years ago, the office was run on a generic basis, which of course meant everyone could keep their hand in, so to speak, with the various disciplines - children & ... The best thing about working for South Lanarkshire Council's social work department was the spirit of friendship between colleagues and team workers. As a smallish department at the time I worked there, management was easily approachable and senior social workers were available at all times to provide assistance and feedback - not just at supervision sessions as in some other Council's Social work offices that I've worked in. At the time I began working there, several years ago, the office was run on a generic basis, which of course meant everyone could keep their hand in, so to speak, with the various disciplines - children & families; offenders; elderly and so on, which kept the variety of tasks interesting and challenging. more

Uninformed senior management made the foolish decision to bring in clocking-in systems, as the didn't like social workers taking an hour or two off from time to time to see to personal things,like shopping. So instead of working for no overtime until late evening, people naturally felt disgruntled at being mistrusted and the assumption that they were "skipping" work unauthorisedly, and simply stopped going on a late call out, leaving an extra burden on the emergency night team, or chargedfor theovertime they did.

The level of lasting frienships formed between colleaugues and middle management.

“Great flexi-working, bureaucratic processes”

Competitive compensation and staff benefits Reasonable working environment Great flexi-working on offer, real flexibility – can even build up as many as 9 full days off with flexible working, and also all the half days you can squeeze in if you want them

Do not empower their staff, don't listen to the advice of the people who are closest to the actual work and know it the best, but prefer to get it out of books Need to develop their staff, offer more training, especially on the web development side as this is notoriously difficult to keep abreast of Typical bureaucratic workings with regard to change processes, ie: very slow and resistant to doing things differently to how it's always been done!

Great to be able to get 9 extra days off with working flexi-time
