Charity workers are being urged to take part in Charity Pulse, Third Sector’s annual survey about working in the voluntary sector.

The poll, which is run in conjunction with Birdsong Charity Consulting, is in its eighth year and covers subjects including morale, work-life balance and pay.

This year, the survey will also ask staff whether they agree with senior levels of pay in their charity.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. Respondents can participate anonymously or leave their details to be entered into a draw from which one winner will receive three free coaching sessions with Birdsong.

Last year’s study found that levels of job satisfaction in the sector rose slightly after hitting an all-time low in 2012.

Frances Hurst, co-founder of Birdsong, says: "We’re hoping we will see some uplift in morale after a tough couple of years. Some charities still appear to be finding things difficult, but others are coping quite well.

"For the first time, we’ll also be focusing on charity leadership and asking staff what they want from leaders and what they think about how much their leaders are paid."

To take part in the survey, go to www.bird-song.co.uk/cp. The survey will be open until 11 April.
