Volunteer Administrator in remote
As a volunteer, it fitted in well with my circumstances at the time.
I assisted in the start up of a pilot project, building relations with members volunteers. Management, flexible in their approach to problem solving. Huge opportunities for learning in this role.
Regional Volunteer Development Officer in Home based office
Not a great workplace culture
Decent pay, high staff turnover. Not a place to work if you are looking for job security. Regularly restructuring, often needlessly. Top down organisation with poor management. Only the chosen few can progress.
Catering Assistant in Ovingdean
Heart warming workplace
Working in the catering department was an enjoyable experience due to the staff and lovely customers who we get to know very dearly. Situated on the coast of Ovingdean it's a great location, with added benefits such as a gym and swimming pool.
Administrator in HQ London
Disgraceful and unprofessional management
Worked here for 2 and a half years. The veterans you get to meet are amazing and this is the rewarding part of the job and the only good point. The management structure is very weak and team leaders are put in place but have little to no experience on leadership, however because they are so grossly overpaid they are 'yes' people to the top management and therefore do not look after the staff under them. If your face doesn't fit then you are out and they will look for any reason to get rid, even if it is unethical and untruthful. The management look out for and cover up for each other and no matter how hard you work or go the extra mile, it means nothing. Question anything and you are out. I am a veteran myself and have been treated terribly by the management which has caused me a great deal of work related stress to the point I quit or rather I was left with no choice but to leave!
Bank Transport Driver in Llandudno
Bank Contract Driver.
Friendly people and a very supportive attitude. I couldn't commit time to the work due to personal circumstances and I feel I've missed out (and also let them down) on working somewhere extraordinary.
The few visitors and residents I met there were also incredibly interesting and a privilege to meet
