Best Places to Work: 2016 (#6)
I worked at Oxfam part-time (Less than a year)
Friendly and helpful training staff. Great customer service skills experience.
Nothing bad about my experience.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oxfam in June 2012.
Lovely people, people smile at you when you go around the building, happy purposeful atmosphere, pretty social, really people-oriented which was a refreshing change from 6 years of corporate automata. Work is challenging (every organisation has its challenges) but you can ask for help and not get looked down upon. Really flexible approach to working - alternative patterns, home working some days a week, worth asking when you apply what they might consider. So great to working for an organisation with a genuine mission to do some good in the world and stand up for what it believes in.
