Reviews

Volunteer in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire
on 17 March 2021
An overall nice place to work with good people, it is also a chance to help give
I felt as though working with cancer research was a really good experience as it helped me start working and it wasn't too stressful it also let me contribute to a cause I care a lot about
Assistant Manager in West Yorkshire
on 27 March 2021
Stressful with targets not reachable set
Worst job I ever had with targets unreachable while only the manager gets a bonus. The area manager wasn’t supportive enough and singled out employees. The pay scheme is unfair as many employees achieve targets and can over perform but only one employee can receive the maximum pay increase awarded any year. This is supposed to be a charity to help achieve the cure for cancer but area managers expenses in coffe shops pretending to have meetings is scandalous.
Customer Service Assistant in Braintree, Essex
on 22 February 2021
Volunteer
Good place to gain customer service experience and other skills if you want to start looking for work in the retail sector. People are nice and there is always something to do. Some days you could be working on the till, sorting out goods or working at the back steam cleaning clothes or pricing items to be taken onto shop floor
Cancer Research UK Volunteer in Corby
on 29 January 2021
Fun Workplace
Good for work experience and younger employees who need a part time activity. Very good for learning skills and having socialable time. Appealing for anyone looking to develop/gain skills that can transfer to any other industry.
Assistant Manager in Dorset
on 21 January 2021
Appalling upper management
Loved working in shop with volunteers and shop manager, an excellent group of friendly hard working people. Upper management was appalling, when issues like a serious safety concern over lone working, or a change of opening hours meaning 2 hours of unpaid time each day. We were told to stop being negative and as a charity free overtime was only fair for us to give. Was a toxic and unpleasant experience dealing with them.Lunch breaks were almost impossible to have as could not leave volunteers alone in shop, without a manager or assistant manager on site and in many cases would have been irresponsible to leave a volunteer alone in busy shop.No support from area managers or above, would never work for them again.
