Due to the nature of this company, some days were extremely hard, Seeing the results appearing, once the experts had worked their magic, meant we all received a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day.
Sense of achievement through seeing the help provided working.
Volunteer Counsellor (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 4 June 2018
My typical day at work entailed replying to emails from young people regarding their concerns that they may have, whether it be school problems, bulliying, relationships etc and providing the young people with advice and post signing them to any supporting links.
good way to raise money, everyone had fun and a lot of money was raised for those in selected charities. good atomosphere, filled with lots of support and different activities to make the day more fun.
Corporate Services (Former Employee) – London – 21 October 2017
The Organisation wants the public and people who donate to it too believe its a professional caring charity however its a shame it doesn't treat its staff well. During the years I worked there both myself and other members of staff were bullied constantly to the point I resigned as my health suffered. HR refused to acknowledge or deal with my complaint. They simply acted as gatekeepers for protecting the charities image. The Charity actually made its own Hr department redundant which actually were caring and helpful.
the whole Management structure is flawed and most of the management in my department were inexperienced at best and had no people skills .
Long serving staff were made redundant or forced out and cheaper wages were paid to their replacements
I would advise anyone who values their health to avoid this employer at all cost.
Varied work.working individually with children and families and group work. Learned nunchucks from managers and colleagues. Supportive management structure Positive a, supportive and encouraging workplace culture Hardest part staying detached Most enjoyable making a difference
Administration Assistant (Former Employee) – Leeds – 21 August 2017
Management were uncaring and unsupportive. Morale in the office was at an all time low due to dire management and distrust between managers. There was a culture of bullying. Staff didn't feel valued. If I suggested new ideas I was basically told to shut up. There were no systems in place when I started and a series of technical issues that should have been sorted out before I started at the NSPCC. I was made to feel like an outsider and felt very isolated. It has to be the worst employer I have ever worked for. I felt that they wanted blood from a stone. Given the salary it was totally unrealistic for the amount of responsibility that I was given, It gives me no pleasure giving a bad review but morale was at an all time low in the office and if the way senior management treated me was anything to go by then they will be losing staff and not retaining them.
It does help alot of abused children
Totally disorganised and staff morale extremely low due to a bullying culture
Children's Practitioner (Former Employee) – Norwich – 19 July 2017
NSPCC made the entire team redundant then lied to our vulnerable clients. They made it clear that Norfolk was 'too isolated' to bother with. Fun work with great clients, but not honest and treated staff very poorly.
Practitioner (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 4 April 2017
Although the team I was part of did some extremely valuable work within our community to support vulnerable children, the agency as whole does not prioritise the children it is supposed to support and instead uses it's money to employ over paid managers.
Training and Development Consultant (Current Employee) – Leicester, Leicestershire – 17 February 2017
