    Great to get hands on experience and a real insight into the charity sector- if only they paid their interns!

    Current Employee - World's Biggest Coffee Morning Intern

    I have been working at Macmillan Cancer Support as an intern for less than a year


    Great training opportunities- would do anything to help their interns gain knowledge and understanding in a given area
    Able to get your hands dirty and do things that you find interesting, my supervisor was very clear that I wasn't there to be the teams admin assistant. This means that I have been able to do anything that I have thought might be useful and use my personal judgement- they are really keen to know my ideas and opinions.
    I am left to do things on my own if I feel I can but they are still there to support me if I need


    The IT situation is not ideal, limited training in using the portal, been on the phone to numerous IT technicians to try and help me and they are still unable to resolve my issues
    The internship is not paid- I know this is a charity so this is not surprising but it would be nice- I still really enjoy it- it's just not that good for the bank balance
    I work from home and meet the team in Coffee shops- it can sometimes be a bit tricky working from home and not being able to pop into your managers office for a chat but this might just be me.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Macmillan Cancer Support in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied via their website and was telephoned by an HR Assistant. She asked me to attend an experience day which started at 09:30 and lasted until around 15:00 in the afternoon. We were served tea and coffee and then given a presentation about the company. We were then asked to perform a number of tasks in groups with employees from Macmillan sitting with each group assessing our performance.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no questions, just a number of tasks set as teamwork exercises. There was a total of three tasks set. The first was trying to find something in common between individual team members, the second I have forgotten, and the third was to work as a team to prepare a presentation for a donor organisation.   Answer Question
