Yes. My time working with red was great experience and working as part of the team.
I extremely recommend working for British Red Cross. I have been working for company almost 5 years and I really enjoyed learning new skills and meeting new people from aver the world..race, culture and region. I’m sure it agreat opportunities for people works want to learn and Get skills and experience.
Sales Assistant (Part-time) in Newquay, Cornwall

Fun Workplace
Having been promoted from a volunteer to a paid employee to cover the shop opening hours due to the assistant manager being off work with terminal illness I was encouraged to apply for the vacant position and was unsuccessful due to my lack of commercial experience despite carrying the shop for over 1yr and successfully passing the NVQ i retail and leadership and being a SNCO within the RAF I felt I was used
Work Experience in Plymouth
on 6 January 2021
Okay
I worked there for work experience so I wasn’t getting paid and was working 9-5. I felt like other workers were just getting me to do the jobs they just didn’t want to do as I had to be there.
Emergency Care Assistant in Eastleigh, London, Redhill, Surrey
on 4 January 2021
Not what it once was
I worked for the British Red Cross for three years within their ambulance support team.Initially there was a strong training plan, although much of this was relevant to event first aid rather than emergency care. During my first year there were twice yearly one to ones and we had an area manager that was also on the road doing the same job.After losing our manager due to cost cutting, there was no regular feedback, no one who did welfare checks (particularly after high category jobs like road traffic collisons or cardiac arrests).Ambulatory care involves shift work which can be great, however, our working shift was 12 hours, and we'd be expected to travel 1 to 2 hours either side of that depending on area requirements. This didn't leave ample time between shifts for sleep and often became dangerous by the time I had worked my 3rd shift, especially when asked to work perm night shifts for months on end.Pay was a flat rate regardless of working days/nights/weekendsThe Red Cross was flexible in regard to shift changes or holiday requests. Crewmates could be amazing and the chance to work alongside other agencies was a big positive.No chance to progress. Always lead to believe that we would be given the chance to train up from an emergency care assistant to either tech or paramedic but it never came off and due to this de-skilling, the NHS eventually ended our contract and we were made redundant.There are some wonderful people within this organisation, sadly they are not at the top.
