Working for us: testimonies

Read what some of our staff have to say

At Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council we encourage our employees to provide honest and open feedback regularly. In a recent piece of employee engagement, we asked how likely staff would be to recommend Blackburn with Darwen as a place to work to family and friends.

The average score was 8.52 out of 10!

This is what some of them had to say:

“I like that I’m helping people, especially through the cost of living, it’s really rewarding. I like the flexibility of the role, I can work from home, and I work in the office 1-2 times a week. The team definitely helps because the job can be tough at times. I’m in a supportive team with supportive management.”

“All aspects of working for the council feed into my wellbeing. I'm in a good team, I enjoy the work, and it's nice to get praise in my supervisions, I can do the job, and it gives me satisfaction and confidence.”

“I enjoy the variety. I enjoy the challenge. I enjoy there being areas to make a positive contribution to. Like when we change the ways of working and solving problems. We're not being told what to do. I like working with customers face-to-face.”

“I have worked for Blackburn for over 10 years, we are all supportive, it's a very supportive team, and we all handle challenges together. Even with changes in the management structure there has always been someone to talk to.”
