Average due to working on a Ministry of Justice Contract jointly with changing lives
When training I loved how they made the staff feel and how we would try to have a positive impact on the hard to reach possible clients in A Way Out. However when working in the building I discovered that the paid team did not have that passion to help support those in need, they seemed to have an attitude of not having the time or rolled their eyes when the same people needed support.
I was studying at university as well and was told one day I could not have a day off for my essay that was due. (I was a volunteer) and I had cover for my work which I personally dealt with so I was not letting the clients down.
I applied for a position there after all the hard work I out in and was not accepted for an interview, I thought I might be able to make a change for those in need and get to know the company more to be able to reach those hard to reach.
I'm not sure if it a place where your face has to fit but it left me feeling sad that there are people like that in a world where people are suffering, have no voice and need people who are passionate about their job.
If I could of taken the paid staff away from the support that the volunteers offered the client were who made the job worth while.
There are different job roles in the company which could keep it interesting but not sure if you can try different things, I was not able to when I was volunteering I was told I had to stay in the same job role which was not what they said when training.
Sorry if this seems off putting and I hope that it has changed since I was there, I know they were getting a new manager so fingers crossed they seen this issues and dealt with them.
Help jobseekers learn about the company by being objective and to the point.
