Each day I clocked in for 7:45am and was on site at 8am.
I learned how to use machinery I never used before during my time there.

Management were really enjoyable to work with.

The hardest part of the job was been a flagman for the tractor flail on busy days on busy roads.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different people from the public on a day to day basis.

Supervisor explained my duties (which were relatively straightforward) really well and was always around to answer any of my questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful.

As I was a Transition Year student during this work experience placement, I was in need of guidance and aid during my time there. The staff were very willing to help me throughout the day and provided me with enough information in order for me to complete my tasks. The typical day at work was very diverse with many different tasks assigned which have helped gain and improve various skills.
Pros
Very helpful staff
Cons
long hours

In the 14 years that I have been working in South Dublin County Council I have gained a vast amount of experience within Local Government.
• Throughout my years in Land Use Planning & Transportation, Environment, Water & Climate Change and now in my current position in Housing. I have developed an appreciation of the importance of effective communications as well as strong interpersonal skills.

• I feel I have an understanding to the changes that are occurring in the public service in order to continue deliver quality services.

• I can adopt to change and am willing to learn new information and learn ways of improving our service. I have the ability to work within a team but also on my own initiative.

• I have vast experience with dealing with the members of the public and also Council Officials through our customer care system, over the phone and in person in relation to traffic queries and now public realm queries.

• From time to time I would have provided backup and support to my line manager in order to meet deadlines, achieve goals and tasks.
Pros
Flexi time
Cons
long commute from Carlow

A typical day at work would be cutting grass, planting flowers, trees around South Dublin in all weather, I learned a lot about working around wildlife & plantlife, my management were a good group to work with, always teaching you, my co workers were also nice to me and to show me ways at doing my job, the most enjoyable part of the day was when people would come up to you and say your doing a beautiful job
