I worked at Sport England as an intern (Less than a year)
Volume of workload.
Exposure to directors.
Reasonable work expectations.
Salary - relative for an internship programme.
Office morale seemed low/negative which can be a little un-nerving for a new starter.
Advice to Management
The communication of internal changes and the rationale behind them did not appear to be done as well as it could have been.
That being said, as the internship ended it did appear new initiatives were being developed to improve transparency and general communication which is a step in the right direction.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sport England.
The interview process was well structured and outcomes etc were communicated clearly. The interview itself was very informal and friendly. Generally it was a low stress experience and Sport England gave me a response quite quickly.
