Administrator (Former Employee) – Leicester, Leicestershire – 9 January 2018
Enjoyed all my time at Age UK All my colleagues were nice and helpful Learned some useful tips in a working office environment. It was my first long term job in the UK, the only reason that I left was they didn't pay me a salary
Befriender Volunteer (Current Employee) – Leicester – 7 January 2018
I love this job as I meet a lovely lady for 2 hours each week. We discuss what we have been up to and whatever else crops up. I make her a cup of tea or get anything else she needs as she is confined to a chair until she has her hip replacement operations in February
Volunteer Shop Assistant (Current Employee) – Dewsbury, West Yorkshire – 18 December 2017
I go in to AGE UK in Dewsbury and see what needs doing in shop and then i go up stairs to the work place where my day begins,I hang some garments, then i steam them and price them and take them down to shop to be sold, I have learned all asspects of this sort off work and with volunteering at Age Uk i enjoy my work and working within a team or on my own. But most enjoyable is working for the elderly and noing its a worthwhile job.
I get my bus fares and my lunch money back each day while im at Age Uk
Care Worker (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 15 December 2017
Age uk (charlton) was the most rewarding work experience i have had. A typical day included assisting the elderly by services tea/snacks as well as lunch. As a part of this experience I also had the opportunity to interact and communicate with the elderly members of the Centre through one to one and group activity.
It was a normal day. Stacking some clothes on hangers. sorting out some stock in the stockroom. putting labels on clothes with hangers. I also had to work behind the till sorting out cash and card payments.

I really enjoy the time i spend at Age UK because it is something that i believe is a good cause and i want to support it, i get on well with everyone else who is volunteering and we all see it as giving back to the community with both the charity and what it does and also what we provide to the public.
