Case worker (Former Employee) – New South Wales – 24 January 2019
Perfect place to work with lots of humour, laugh and celebrations. highly focussed on quality of work rather on quantity. Excellent support from managers, and plenty of opportunities for career growth. Perfect work-life balance. One of my favourite place to work.
Red Cross is a good place to work because of the people
Case Worker (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 9 January 2019
Red Cross staff work together to meet a common objective. The work in the Migrant Support Program where my experience lies is fulfilling because you are working with arguably the most vulnerable people in Sydney and the surrounds.The most enjoyable part of the work is contact with clients which is also the hardest part when they are denied a Protection Visa and have to face possible return to the country from which they have fled.
Volunteer Housing support officer (Former Employee) – Adelaide SA 5000 – 14 December 2018
I worked as a volunteer with Australian red cross when I newly came to Australia and I had a good time helping new refugees that moved to Australia around 2011-2012. I will never forget people that I worked with and people that I was able to help.

Best place to work for, feeling good to work for Australian Red Cross Blood Services, build up your sense of humanity. I don’t know what my cotributions are but I guess I keep the office clean every day :)
Social Support Officer (Former Employee) – Southport QLD – 23 October 2018
Worked with the Social Support Team, in providing programs for the elderly and connect them with other people. This included volunteers visiting the elderly to provide support and building friendships. This was a amazing opportunity to learn and grow in developing new skills. Also had the opportunity to find first hand that our society, especially with the elderly are vulnerable and very excluded. However, there is not enough funding to provide programs to help the elderly. The job itself was great and enjoyable in helping those who are in need of assist and connecting these people into the community,
Amazingly dedicated staff. Good work flexibility options.
Great people on the ground Poor Leadership and Management
Administration Assistant (Former Employee) – Queensland – 25 July 2018
Staff and volunteers do an extraordinary job helping the vulnerable in the community. The work with refugees is so helpful to them. Management though do not practice the humanitarian principles with very poor leaders in key positions. The culture higher up is pretty toxic and most staff will attest to this.

Working volunteer in Australian Red Cross is a very nice experienced for me and I've learned a lot from a retail industry. People are so very nice, approachable and respectful. The most enjoyable part of the job is sorting clothes for display and the hardest part of the job is steaming the clothes but it's all good and I love doing it because your hard works makes people smile. I really love working in Red Cross because it's a very nice feeling that you can help the Australian Community.
