Fast paced work setting. Always busy, but this is great as your never not doing something.
People are lovely and always happy to help and will always go above and beyond to help customers as well as employees,
Very informative work setting.
The ethics of the charity are very good unfortunately the management ie Directors are very very poor, only interested in themselves and what they can get out of the charity, most of them if not All have no clinical background. In my time working for this charity it has gone on a down ward spiral the Directors are bullies and hide behind the so called caring image of the charity.

"Extreme Bullying and Micromanagement of Hard Working and Devoted Staff!!!"
It all started with a great idea for a good cause, but ended up in being a health-hazardous workplace - stay away from this company, if you value your own mental health (!). I have been working to a very high standard, as my fellow colleagues also agreed by giving me relevant feedback. Always maintained values, policies and relevant work practices at this level. - The management could not care any less, if you really supported a person who is facing one of the worst experiences and difficult times in his/ her life. What they only care about is to bring numbers up, their own brand and image, which does not correlate at all with what people might project into it, as well as making more and more money by fundraising and donations - all whilst working their staff to mental exhaustion and illness. When trying to raise this issue with my line manager, whom I trusted a lot, I got back-stabbed by this person in return. Although I then passed this on to another member of staff of slightly more senior position and this person agreeing with me, I got manipulated and harassed by my line manager. This person would from then on constantly bully me. When I brought this up to senior management, they sided all together and tried to intimidate me with their horrible mind-games. On my request for reasonable adjustments, I was not provided any of that - even though there were clearly resources available and this is being imposed by the government by several legal/ public Acts. Thy simply wanted me out and continued to bully and manipulate me; knowing that I was not coping well anymore and got extremely stressed because of their actions. - Most of the staff of many years left due to the bullying culture and severe control patterns/ micromanagement and since the 're-structuring' process it got even worse. Initially they appeared friendly and welcoming, only to turn the table without warning and pounce on you. I became very ill, which my doctor confirmed was the effect the dysfunctional dynamic of this workplace had on me. - Never before did this happen to me. I work now for another FANTASTIC employer within the same sector and I must say - what a difference! They value their staff and appreciate them a human beings and don't feel the need to regress and play terrible games with them. Having decided to work for Macmillan Cancer Support was the biggest mistake of my entire life!!! - Stay away from this place!! Even though one excels and gives 120%, there are no opportunities provided to really advance within the organisation. Also, one has to use up free-time for relevant work related tasks, as some time within the actual allocated shifts patterns was never ever granted, when requested. So one is literally forced to work in her/ his free time in order to satisfy the management and ridiculously calculated KPI' s and targets. - Forget about training - you'll never be able to realise attending even one course, even though other individuals seem to be on training all the time! This review reflects my personal opinion.
