I worked at UnitingCare NSW.ACT full-time (More than 3 years)
Staff are from multi-cultural backgrounds, ages and expertise. Dedicated and friendly staff.
High staff turnover, boys clubs at IT, , senior management in IT was not very supportive (no training, no performance appraisal, no recognition) .
Advice to Management
Be a role model to what the organisation values, and support your teams to progress and grow
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at UnitingCare NSW.ACT (Sydney (Australia)) in September 2016.
Dodged a bullet........
Four weeks from application to first interview - HR partner was pleasant and communicated well.
I was not offered the role, and am relieved at this outcome. I'm a professional with over 20-years commercial experience and was given feedback post-interview that I should dress more professionally. I was wearing fitted trousers, a floating top, heels, make-up, jewellery etc - an outfit I had worn both in the office and whilst speaking at events. The feedback that went to HR was that I was wearing cargo pants and a t-shirt.
I was not asked at any point about my marketing skills or background, the interview was focussed solely on influencing difficult stakeholders, and bringing the team along on a transformational journey (and what I was wearing apparently).
The organisation is archaic yet immature, the leaders are judgemental and backward, and their core values of compassion and respect are theoretic.
