Bad team leaders with bad judgement who can and will fire you on whim. Waste of time.
I had a very poor experience in my short time as an employee with Oxfam. After having gone through a somewhat lengthy (but pleasant) process to obtain employment as a trainee fundraiser at Oxfam, I was ruthlessly fired after working on field for half a day. The reasons they gave were that I apparently didn’t know my script to a satisfactory standard and did not have a personality suitable for the role. I must emphasise again that this judgement was formed after working there for half a day (just a number of hours). I was not even provided with sufficient feedback, given the opportunity to improve or provided with any support or encouragement , instead I had the misfortune of working under a negative team leader who seemed to look down upon new recruits like myself.I attempted to understand this seemingly rash dismissal by discussing it with another team leader (who was the one who fired me). This team leader responded by informing me that she had “fired people within minutes before” (said as if it was supposed to make me feel better for lasting half a day before getting fired). This company evidently does not treat new recruits with respect and I suspect must has a high turnover rate. I would however like to acknowledge a select few people during the hiring process and via zoom orientation who were pleasant to engage with. However, the team leaders, who new recruits are subjected to work with on a daily basis, in my experience are horrible and they are the ones who have the power to fire you on whim after one bad day (or hour) on the job. I would recommend not opting to work for Oxfam if like me you are sensitive to this kind of cut throat treatment as it could harm your self confidence and worth like it did mine.Fortunately for myself, I managed to obtain employment with another fundraising agency just days after being dismissed from Oxfam. This has went very well as I have had a lot of fun and manged to achieve team leader status within a month, after reaching a high quota. I was offered room and support for personal and professional development at this agency and because of this I have been very successful, this has better aligned with my personal values of how employees should be treated. It genuinely saddens me that this was not offered to me at Oxfam and my current success is clearly indicative in my opinion of how the team leaders judgements are lacking and how there is much needed room for reform in this organisation. It is my sincere hope that Oxfam will become a more welcoming and supportive place for new recruits!

The cause is amazing but management is negative
The cause is amazing, fundraising for it was meaningful. The management don’t trust in the team. Usually the leader is spying you to check if you are working and they don’t give you training, just 3 hours orientation and they send you to the streets. Even if you do a good job and get the sign ups if you have a bad day without sign ups they can fire you in the street, it is the worst experience in my professional life.
