My introduction to the Volunteer Centre was five years ago when I met the new opportunities coordinator who led me to an opportunity where I could use my skills and volunteer at the Museum of Brands. This gave me the perfect opportunity to experience a different type of working environment, within the creative field as I had previously worked in interior design on residential, commercial and embassy projects.
I then joined as a volunteer at the Volunteer Centre in January 2016, where I assisted the flexible support programme, helping unemployed clients search for jobs and volunteering opportunities. To see a clients progression from gaining skills through volunteering to securing paid work has been a rewarding and satisfying experience.
I am now delighted to work with the core services team as a volunteer development administrator and look forward to many new and experiences here!
