Coordinator (Former Employee) – North East – 21 October 2017
No support from Management at all none of them step up to help when your continuously short staffed due to same members of staff going on long term sick. A lot of staff leave this organisation due to the poor management! The majority of staff swan about not doing what they're employed to do which is provide support to stroke survivors other members of staff which can do the job are carrying them and nothing ever gets done about this even when its been reported to management what is going on. Terrible place to work and being on yearly contracts is unsettling as you never know if your service is going to be recommissioned the next thing you know you're on a months notice.
Human Resource Assistant (Current Employee) – West Midlands – 2 August 2017
Multiple deadlines are set each week however these are manageable. The workload is even more manageable as I work in a very supportive team. The best part of my role is that I am not micro managed, I am aware of my duties and feel comfortable to approach my boss if necessary.
Stroke Recovery Coordinator (Former Employee) – North West – 6 July 2017
A great job to have in terms of flexibility, and fairly good wages. However, there is very little support from management and little continuity across the region and country. I did not enjoy my time working at the Stroke Association and would not recommend them as an employer.
Flexible working hours, good pay
Poor management, no continuity, terrible office space, no accountability

A typical day at The Birmingham Chamber of Commerce would consist of Checking Emails/Responding, Account Management, contacting new clients to book appointments for Growth Voucher Diagnostics, Leading Diagnostic appointments and sign posting to other opportunities. My co-workers are extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. The hardest part of the day was going home cause I enjoyed working there so much.
