Pay Support Officer Full Time (Former Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne – 30 March 2018
Too much work not enough staff. Not to let off steam as you are on deaf ears nothing gets done about it. If you cant hack it look for another job.
Management letting staff reduce their hours and not thinking what impact it has on the Full Time Staff left to pick up the extra work load. Management not communicating properly with staff, regarding changes, if you are not in that day you are supposed to know what the changes are.
Enjoyable part speaking to staff regarding their queries and receiving thanks for being so helpful.
Donor Carer (Current Employee) – Northampton – 15 April 2019
Being on a mobile team doing late sessions we start around 12:30pm until about 7pm. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people everyday and learning about their reasons for donating, its nice to create that kind of relationship with donors as it makes them have a great experience and want to come back to donate in the future. Full training is all provided, based on site and in training facilities. Working full time doing around 75 working hours every fortnight, this means you work 4 days within the 7. Mostly they are weekdays but on occasion it may be a weekend (with my team specifically). It is great to know that you are directly involved in the blood donation process, and it is important to remember that on stressful days, every donation counts.
