    Positive and challenging. You have to be assertive.

    Unusual risks eg. trip hazards or glass/both. It's easy to be distracted by other tasks and leave a hazard forgotten about.

    I worked at British Heart Foundation part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice friendly people. The manager was really happy to leave me with complicated or important tasks despite being young.

    Cons

    When the manager changed days no one got me anything to do and it was very boring.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear on what different ages can be allowed to do as many people were scared to give me jobs deemed complicated even though I was able
