"I work as a Communications and Fundraising assistant for the Bishop Simeon Trust, an amazing charity which supports vulnerable children living in the poorest communities of South Africa. My role involves me coming up with different ways to raise money for our important cause and communicating with our lovely supporters.
One of the best things about my placement is that I’m encouraged to be creative, to come up with my own ideas and strategies for reaching proposed fundraising targets. My colleagues are incredibly supportive of me, and I feel really lucky to have their advice and guidance, as well as my employability adviser at EN:Able Communities.
I’ve already learnt so much from my Kickstart placement, and it’s made me feel even more excited and ready for the future."
