Always running short on budget for contract work. You don't know when your job will be over. You always keep on thinking if your contract will be extended.

I had worked for Innerwest council for 2 and a half years never really had any problems with my workmates, but when the council amalgamated the atmosphere changed for the worst, micromanagement became a problem and what was once a nice environment turned sour as HR chopped and changed the environment and got rid of seemingly good workers over the slightest complaint from members of the public. Management let me go over an incident where a member of public assaulted me twice and attempted to detain me unlawfully and then made a complaint about me and instead of having my back they terminated my probationary position like that. I wasn't the first.

So the people you work with a pleasant and friendly but avoid drawing the attention of HR or your gone.


As an autistic person i felt discriminated against, decisions were made without taking into consideration my disorder. Not as equal opportunity as they profess to be.
Pros
Rostered Day off Every 3 weeks, 5 weeks annual holidays
Cons
rotating rosters/ weekend work and an unsupportive Management Team

My role consisted of contributing to the learning and care needs of the children in my room. Following a daily routine and working within a team environment. It is an enjoyable job and I learned a lot about children's learning and development through following children's interests and documenting children's learning in line with the Early Years Learning Framework Guidelines (set by the government). I also learned a lot about my own teaching practice and how to reflect for improvement.
Pros
Having an influence on children's development and learning; being a valued part of a community
Cons
No opportunity to work extra hours or earn extra money

Very friendly environment to work in, staff are valued and appreciated. I worked under the Compliance & Enforcement Unit and was responsible for producing, editing and distributing updates and materials for members of the public on compliance issues to agreed deadlines. I acquired the ability to use Microsoft Office to a high level in order to create reports, correspondence and spreadsheets in order to produce materials, market events and maintain records. The most enjoyable part of the job was liaising with internal staff and external audiences regarding the resolution of compliance issues.
