“A feel-good experience”

You'll definitely have a feel-good experience, working for this well-loved and widely known charity. Really lovely, passionate and committed fellow workers and plenty of expertise -- and that's just the dogs! A good way of giving something back as you gain vital work experience and skills you can transfer to other sectors.

Often posts are voluntary and unwaged. Management approach and systems are bit old school and IT needs to be upgraded. Some long-serving old-timers are blocking the promotion prospects of other staff. A lot of staff turnover to cope with.

They let you take your dog into the office with you.

“A great place to work!”

This is one of the most satisfying jobs you can hold especially if you like both charity work and working with animals. The company's mission and values are great. They are very warm and caring with both their customers and their employees. They have the most amazing people working for them, and even more amazing dogs. Those dogs are just out of this world! The campus is beautiful.

The company hasnt sorted out its organisation yet, some departments are very siloed. And communication between them is pretty bad, which is never good for an organisation that is trying to help people. Luckily it hasnt come in the way of the customer as yet.

Siloed departments

About
We will not rest until blind and partially sighted people can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else. The ability to get around is vital in order to live a full life yet thousands of people who are blind or partially sighted never leave home alone. Guide Dogs empowers visually impaired people to do that and relies on the support of the public to fund its services. We breed and train guide dogs which provide life changing mobility and there are currently 4,500 working guide dog partnerships in the UK. It costs £5 per day to support each working guide dog partnership. The full lifetime cost of a guide dog from birth to retirement is around £50,000. We also provide a range of mobility and other rehabilitation services such as white cane training as well as campaigning passionately to break down barriers – both physical and legal – to enable blind and partially sighted people to get around on their own.
