    I have been working at Wiltshire Council full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    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!

    Cons

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wiltshire Council (Chippenham, South West England, England (UK)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    This was a presentation based interview to a panel of senior managers. The presentation was to be delivered without the use of PowerPoint and was to last for 15 minutes. Following the presentation I was questioned about what I had delivered.
    The rest of the interview was question and answers from each of the panel.
    The interview last approximately 90 minutes.
