Temporary Contract (Former Employee) – London – 22 October 2017
This is one of the worst places I have ever worked. The management are awful and the pay is terrible. I would never recommend anyone works here. I learned nothing and there is no culture to speak of. Most enjoyable time of the day was home time.

In addition to this , a bake sale was also carried out in order for people to buy cakes and other foods from me , in order to raise donations towards the charity.
Administration Assistant Volunteer (Former Employee) – Maidstone, Kent – 23 March 2017
Marie Curie Cancer Care office in Maidstone is a lively and fun place to work. They are all dedicated professionals and create a brilliant atmosphere in which to excel yourself. I learnt a great deal while I worked there including day to day banking, working with spreadsheets, working with donors updating their details on the in house system, helping people wherever they had queries that they needed help with as well as helping with various fundraising campaigns.
Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) – midlands – 2 March 2017
Management play the blame game, always trying to catch you out and discipline you but they get away with everything, treat you as a number just to fill a shift, give you no support whilst at work. Working for Marie Curie has easily been the most traumatic work experience of my career
Senior Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) – South West – 15 November 2016
I work nights at present, and every night is different depending on needs of patient, you do a lot of on line training, as a night worker you don't really see a lot of co workers but in meetings its nice to catch up. The hardest part of the job is when you are attached to a patient and they die, the most enjoyable part is meeting new people and being appreciated for what you do.
Office Volunteer (Current Employee) – Edinburgh – 10 August 2016
Typical day of work starts with looking through the white mail, making sure that donors' feedback and requests are fulfilled. Also, updating fundraising database which sometimes requires problem solving skills as some information might be missing or irrelevant so need to be checked and approved. The management along with co-workers are very helpful and supportive. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I develop already known skills that is using MS Office and email, learn new skills such as working with database and adapting to office environment. At the moment I have not found the hardest part of the job because I get supported on every step.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Gloucester – 27 April 2016
This role involved both cash handling and handling stock. There was usually one paid member of staff (management) and a couple of volunteers. The management was very good and were very friendly, as were the other volunteers. The hardest part of the job was having to balance the stock take with the shop floor. Volunteering here was very easy.
