I have been working at Wiltshire Council full-time (More than 10 years)
I absolutley love working for Wiltshire Council not only is everyone really friendly and approachable (even senior management!) I am encouraged by my manager to continuously look at ways I can development and further myself.
The council encourages you to develop transferable skills allowing you to apply for roles beyond the particular service you work for and reach your full potential. There are many qualifications and in-house courses you can take on/attend.
I also love the fact that all the services we provide are for the public and although not everyone may agree we really do have the community at the heart of everything we do!
Flexible working, having every bank holiday and 30 days holiday a year are all also huge benefits!
Sometimes parking can be an issue and whilst the council have provided frontline staff with guaranteed priority parking, it would be great to see how the issue will be overcome as it will only get worse.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wiltshire Council (Trowbridge, England) in April 2019.
Standard interview procedure - apply online and if successful the next stage is interview. The interview process is not hard at all. What is more frustrating is that there is a lack of communication between staff with personal documents being lost for the DBS. Then there was the staff holidays and so some paperwork had to be done twice. It would have took a lot longer if I wasnt persistant.
