Volunteering is a great life

I enjoy my work volunteering at People Who Care. I am valued as a worker and thanked daily for my efforts. I get to keep my office skills up-to-date while giving back a little to my community while in-between jobs. The management in my specific area is fantastic and very understanding if I cannot attend for whatever reason. The camaraderie is great in the workplace. The hardest part is keeping up with the work due to only working 2 part days/week and not always having enough others doing the job which takes at least 3 full days a week. Sometimes there will be others doing the job on other days, sometimes not.

Great cause but unsophisticated NFP in terms of strategy, policy and leadership

Lots of good people with their hearts in the right place but overall lack of vision and big picture thinking. This organisation is developing quickly although the response to the COVID-19 crisis has been very focused on crisis management where a more sophisticated approach may have seen the crisis as an opportunity for the organisation to shine.

Good company to work for

The atmosphere at people who care is wonderful and they do provide training to volunteers. Also the other staff help out as much as possible. The only downside is that the location isnt always easy to get to.

Most enjoyable part of this job was customer service

This was a fabulous job enjoyed every moment of it. Unfortunately new management put paid staff off. All the shops are run by volunteers only. When I worked there before new management it was a very supportive place to work. It was great working for a charity where you new the profit was going towards helping the community.

Team

Working as part of the Saturday team has been a real pleasure. They are some of the most kind hearted people you can meet and they will always have a smile on their face when serving customers. I wouldn't really say that any part of the job is difficult but there is a lot of work to be done in what w don.

Very special job position as program Facilitator in facilitating jobseekers

I’ve had such a huge learning curve in facilitating jobseekers and get to know my type of leadership better. I wish I had a better support from management yet they also have been overwhelmed by Jobactive departments.

Pros

Get to meet new people and have the capacity to influence them positively

Cons

Unreliable contract

I volunteered my time to People Who Care, as they are a great organisation who assist our aging community to stay at home longer. I gave my time, but received so much more than expected. I was given training in carrying out general office duties, while spending some time with some wonderful people.

Pros

Fantastic orgaisation and people
