“Good work/life balance and pleasant experience”

You are not stuck in one department - it's really easy to move around into different departments so you can really educate yourself on what the charity sector is all about. And there are also some really good formalised training opps. The pay is good compared to other charities and the pay structure is transparent so that you can see what the people at the top are getting and it's not like some corporations where the people at the top pay themselves megabucks and allocate pennies to the ones at the bottom, at BRC the pay is distributed much more evenly across the whole organisation.

Should be tighter controls on paper usage and electricity – there doesn't seem to be a policy about turning off computers when they leave the office or about not printing off everything that appears onscreen, so there's a lot of unnecessary waste. As a volunteer/intern you only get paid your expenses and the process for claiming these is nightmarishly complicated.

“An extremely fulfilling job!”

Working at the red cross for a life changing and amazing experience to me that opened my eyes to both the difficulties and travails of life as well as the inexhaustible good in all human beings that is just waiting to come out. At the red cross, you learn to have faith in human kindness, the organisation feeds off it. You feel very good being in the middle of all that, and helping out, and saving real lives. Everyone at the red cross, feels this aura, and no matter how they come in, they all leave better and more humble and empthathetic people.

Communication between departments needs to be improved. an organisation like this can not afford to waste time and resources to communication problems. The organisation needs a better marketing strategy to get its message out there, because unlike the usual corporates - they have a really good message to put out.

The extremely good feeling you get working here.
