Testimonial from Shaun, current Relief Assistant Manager: “Having previously had careers in the Army and Financial Services, I never dreamt I would be working in charity shops. However, the bank role offered by St Barnabas Hospices is extremely flexible, interesting and varied. It allows me to fit part time work around my life. The work /life balance it provides allows me to enjoy semi- retirement, meet a lot of great people and feel that I am doing something worthwhile for a great cause.”
