“Motivated and driven staff, a good place to work”

Save the Children is driven by its goals and missions. The staff working here also reinforce this and are passionate about what they do. A new CEO has recently been introduced which I believe will improve the work/life balance.

I don't understand the decision making process that management implement. We need more consistency in terms of getting money into the company, the funding is so up and down and every year we need more in terms of a reliable income to ensure that all of the programs are sufficiently supported.

The US programs seem to be really unfocused.

“Inspiring core mission, interesting job, all openings competitively sought after”

Inspiring to work for a company with aims and values that you really believe in, everyone is fully engaged with their work and there's a lot to get your teeth into Generally the working atmosphere is friendly and sociable Lunchtime talks help to maintain everyone's interest and keep us informed and up to date with a variety of issues You can get nvolved with events for raising funds

You don't work in the charitable sector for the amazing salaries, but they are okay for the industry Difficult to actually get work here – everybody wants to work for us and so there's loads of applications and people going after the same post – generally only the most experienced get past the post

Lunchtime talks

“Inspiring corporate mission, good people-focused environment but not well paid”

People are friendly and engaged and keen to get on with doing a good job Inspiring core mission which is both interesting and rewarding to work for Talks organised during the lunch hour keep you up to date on various issues Fundraising was good for morale and helped build team spirit and in general the social aspect of working at SC UK was very good Work/life balance felt about right

Pay is not great, it's typical of the industry though Every available role is fiercely fought over as there are a lot of people who want to work here HR department could be more organised Unnecessarily complicated hierarchy

Vision of the company is something you can really make your own
