Love working for good causes. St. Vincent's helps many people that have been through very difficult times. It maybe a Christian/Catholic charity but you do not need to be religious to give or receive help from them. By no means was this a slow paced work environment, but it did give great job satisfaction, accomplishing so many things. On the whole, great team, great family vibe, upper management invests and looks after there mangers.
Volunteered for SVP for the summer and glad I left. The environment was quite toxic with the older staff mostly keeping to themselves and not as inclusive as they advertised. Customer experience was more negative than positive with many thinking that standing around and talking to staff and volunteers asking personal questions were okay and allowed. I was expected to come in on certain days and do set hours, much like a part-time job but unpaid. I left after after college resumed and landed a better (paid) job soon after.
Fulfilling, rewarding, varied and interesting with the added bonus of meeting new people. It is good fun working with friendly fellow co workers, the clients we serve and various essential key workers. Recommended to anyone seeking joy and fulfillment in their work.
Checking clothes were ok to be sold taking in donations for people speaking, to clients and getting people to join svp so they would receive an additional 25% from the government when they came in to donate things and inturn was sold. The hardest part of the Job was lifting the bags of clothes that weren't acceptable and had to go into the particular area for the a for the rag and bone man to come and buy on a Monday. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to all the different people.
speaking to different people / helping people
lifting of the bags /
Great experience as a Casual Shop Manager in Dalston Junction. Manager and Deputy Manager were both hardworking and friendly. Volunteers dedicated and easy to get on with. Great cause and supportive Area Manager. Good experience overall.
Friendly working environment
No job for advancement at the time
I worked in the finance department for approx 3 months. The people here are lovely and very supportive. I worked in a small team and was welcomed from day one and although the job wasn't quite right for my skills I learnt a lot in this period and I certainly would recommend as a great place. knowing that the end result of what you do helps those in need gives you job satisfaction.
