    I have been working at Age UK (The National Charity) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of training opportunities, really lovely colleagues, and a genuine commitment to working with older people to make late life better. Career development options including stepping up and taking on additional responsibilities. Quality is taken seriously, and impressive thought is given by colleagues as to how they improve and develop their work and this is generally recognized and appreciated by managers

    Cons

    As with most large organisation some of the internal procurement processes can be clunky, I.T. basics are a bit inconsistent, e.g. slow systems.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on simplification of procurement and IT processes, these sometimes let your people down and mean they can't perform at their best.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Age UK (The National Charity) (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Presentation, followed by competency based interview in front of two people. In total, lasted about an hour. Most of the questions were pretty straightforward - how you would influence people, management experience, etc. However, they opened with an unusual question about policy (that couldn't necessarily have been guessed by researching the company and policy area in advance).
