Today has been mostly about work. I work 9-5 Monday to Friday for the national disability charity Scope – www.scope.org.uk I started there after my graduation in the Human Resources department. I spent 1 year doing admin recruiting new shop managers and support workers.
Then I took the big move to London, out of my family home (which I’ll explain the practical difficulties of another day). For 6 further months I worked in HR but around training Scope employees in diversity. This is when I became a trainer too. But I knew I wanted to use my Marketing knowledge from my Masters and landed my role in fundraising last March. Since I have continued my training, through starting the street and door to door campaigns. Basically I train the new fundraisers for 2 hours on disability, social model and Scope. This essentially raises Scope money by recruiting people for monthly donations.
Today I have finished off a telemarketing campaign, continued the running of our street and door campaigns as well as a meeting with 4 other charities. In this consortia we receive monthly donations but through peoples pay, not direct debit. As we are 5 charities together the donors money supports more people
