Overall reviews at National Trust
Membership Assistant | Corfe Castle | 6 Sep 2017
Great company and values
Staff are paid minimum wage, which one might justify with it being a charity but at the same time, staff are not showed that they are valued in other ways as well such as managers congratulating an exceptional day of teamwork when targets have been beaten and great customer assistance provided.
ProsYou don't take work home with you, working for a great organisation that helps conserve important historic and natural sites
ConsPoor management and organisation. It can also be very corporate and less about staff morale, and just targets.

Best place to build on your confidence
You get to meet thousands of different people everyday. Guided tours really build on your confidence and allows you to expand and play on your more adventurous and jokey side while providing a service to the public.
Good pay for my age and plenty of opportunity to better yourself and progress.

Fantastic Cause based orgainisation
Excellent orgainisation to work for however progression is slow due to external candidates (sometimes taking pay cuts to join) taking progression opportunities from existing employees.

Great and Varied work.
I love doing volunteering at Chartwell, as every week is different, every job is very challenging and most of all its outdoors. The views are great and the people you end up working with, really are amazing people.
ProsBreaks when needed.
