At the community centre the atmosphere was relaxed and, at times, hectic. Very enjoyable to work with the Supervisor who appreciated any effort put into a task.

Very challenging, there are no two similler days during the working week. Customer expectations are extremely high. Planing has to be very precise with lot of Protocols to follow. Lot of meetings, discussions with stakeholders, clients, secretaries, organisers etc to make the function memorable, enjoyable and productive. Very fun working place where i managed to meet different types of people from all social tiers.

Political dominance from the top to bottom.

Highly secretive practices in decision making with no transparency in cooperation amongst colleagues, let alone working with other divisions with the City Council.

Stability in life is perfect when working here, safety is high up there and your management is awsome, hardest part of this job would be the heat in summer.

Staff are the best thing, good friendships formed
Typical day is mostly spent dealing with the public

Hardest part of the job is angry customers.

Customer focus is very important.
