    I have been working at The Challenge full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The vision of the Challenge is a more integrated society where there is understanding and appreciation of each other’s differences, which is at the heart of my values and increasingly needed to address the issues we face in society. The vision and mission is at the heart of all activities undertaken by the organisation, creating highly motivating and satisfying jobs.

    I have worked for The Challenge for over six years in a variety of roles and found all to be working towards the mission. The Challenge is very supportive of employees development and performance which has enabled me to develop and progress during my employment with them.

    Second to the mission for me is the culture of the organisation, I have never worked anywhere else where all the employees are passionate and motivated to do their best to achieve the mission. Likewise, there are few organisations that offer such high quality levels of holistic support for their staff.

    There is a wide variety of roles within the organisation and the option to progress offering employees a career path if they wish.

    Cons

    The programmes The Challenge deliver require high performing staff members that are dedicated, if you're looking for a minimum effort nine to five job, then The Challenge may not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the mission at the heart of the organisation and the great changes taking place to support employees mental health and disabilities.
