It should be better working for a major charity
Confidential (Former Employee) – Communications – 29 November 2016
Sadly my time at the NSPCC was at a time when there was some reorganisation within the directorate and a new team leadership whose aims were all about 'increasing churn' and who were in my opinion removed from the ethos and values of a third sector organisation.
The reorganisation of the department saw mass redundancies and a recruitment campaign that particularly targeted those with a journalism background. With some previous experience with the NSPCC and other charities I was one of the few with a third sector background to be kept on.
During my time there I felt was treated particularly poorly, with disregard for the agreed procedures within the organisation and as a result of claim and counter-claim and consequent illness, we agreed that I would resign my post.
There are plenty of good people within NSPCC, their policy and service delivery professionals, the fundraisers, schools service and childline are all highly dedicated and a delight to work with.
Some would call it bullying
