Volunteer Worker (Current Employee) – Marple, Greater Manchester – 6 February 2018
The Red Cross is a fantastic organisation and it makes you feel good knowing your helping, they get a flow of customers with buying or donating and I throughly enjoy having a chat with them, if I didn't need money I work work there full time after leaving college.
volunteerin at the red cross has given me the confedence to get back into the working environment again evry working day is different. you can be serving on the till one minute and re organising the window display the next, sorting out donated stock to tagging clothes for the store. every one is friendly and upbeat including the managment.
Assistant (Current Employee) – Plympton – 30 January 2018
The days would vary depending who's in at the time. I would be on the till or steaming one day and then cleaning and tidying the shop another. The managers are fun to be around and they talk to you whilst you're working. I have learned that if you work hard you can achieve anything. The hardest part of the job is taking the out of date clothes off the racks and trying to replace them as fast as you can. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people and working with people you enjoy working with. The easiest part of the job is standing by the till and serving people but doing the give and gain I don't enjoy very much cause it's hard work.
Refugee Caseworker (Current Employee) – Neath Port Talbot – 26 January 2018
I really enjoy my position as a Refugee Caseworker and feel very proud of being part of the British Red Cross. I live life by the Fundamental Principles of British Red Cross. Unity, Humanitarian, Diversity, Universal and Impartiality. My job is to integrate refugees within their community. I am able to communicate on a professional level with other Service Providers and Organisations. I have a good knowledge of the Benefits system as well learned alot on Immigration matters. The hardest part of my job is to enable people to be independant when I have a natural passion to help and make life easier for others
Because British Red Cross is a Chariteable Organisation, the pay is not great however the job is of great satisfaction
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Cambridge – 24 January 2018
Volunteering allows you to choose at what times you are able to work. A minimum amount of hours per week is necessary. The people are nice are to work with. The store is not always busy which allows you to have some quiet time to organise things in the store.
A typical day started with setting up the training room and ensuring that the technology worked. You'd be training anything from 3 to 21 people in First Aid at Work. Responsible for own time management and administration. Hardest part of the job was all the travelling, best part of the job was the teaching and the people

Volunteer (Former Employee) – London – 13 January 2018
The people were lovely and very supportive. Overall the job was quite demeaning however the people you worked with lifted my spirits. I would not do this job again, but saying that I'm glad that when I did try a job like this it was with the British Red Cross as I'm sure that the experience would have been a lot worse elsewhere.
Very nice company to work for, very supportive of the individual and their needs. Very flexible when they can be and a nice atmosphere to work in. Staff are all great. the Job is good, and the pay is competitive.
