I worked at the trust for 3 years.when you first start it's a bit overwhelming with all the training.i enjoyed the job,found the night shifts difficult and the 12 hour shifts., Loads of training and courses available.
Most staff are nice
Night shift, 12 hour shifts
It felt like your job wasn’t safe not matter how good you were at it . The focus seemed to be changing from child focused & being a centre of excellence to money saving .
Working with amazing children & their families.
Senior leadership team that managed remotely .

I loved working here it is a fun and lovely place to work in a relaxed setting. Only leaving as it is a fixed term contract which has now ended, I have looked for jobs internally so I could stay cannot fault this place
caring, fun, child and family focused, collaborative
some days the shop is really boring and empty and there isnt much motive to go volunteer, i still do though.. whereas other days can be really fun and enjoyable and makes you feel good knowing that youre helping a charity.
pay for bus fair
sometimes really dull
It can be emotionally challenging as we care for children with complex health needs, but our contribution, whether we are in the HR, Finance, or Nursing & Care team, is clear. The organisation works hard to instill worthy values in the way we work and this is evident throughout what we do, from our team based objectives to our recruitment job packs. As it is a charity the expectations are high, but overall a very rewarding place to work where you also learn a lot about some of the very difficult situations children & their families face when they experience a brain injury.
lovely setting, subsidised nursery and staff restaurant
location, room for growth and development in some teams
Everyday life in a charity shop is often about overcoming difficulties and achieving something great against the odds. One of the regularly reoccurring problems face there is not having the required resources for maximum productivity.
Always feeling the full weight of doing good.
Underpayed and overworked
A typical day at work involved monitoring the shop floor, sorting stock and serving customers. I learned how to handle the till and efficiently rotate stock. The hardest part about the job was time management as there were lots of things to do all the time. The best part of the job was working with collegues and customers
It is aimed to help support children with brain injuries thus some have learning disabilities.. it is a hardwork but all worth it when you see the children and you g people happy and relax and able to smile because you made a difference in their lives..
Holiday and enhancements
Lack of staffing support
