Ever wondered what work experience is like at The Women’s Organisation? In July, 17-year-old Tom undertook a week with the Wo Marketing team. In his own words, here’s what Tom got up to during his week at the Wo.


I got a tour of the workplace, I also saw all the meeting rooms were named after inspirational women as well as also finding out the café is a vegan based café, meaning thy don’t use meat or animal products in their food. I made a tweet which described one of the women named by the meeting room. I also went around the area and building, taking photos for the social media accounts.


I used Canva to create an Instagram post using the photos I took on Monday about the café, I then resized it so it would also fit onto Facebook


I wrote a blog post about a woman I admire. I wrote about Ada Lovelace, who was the first woman to design a computer. I also created a social media graphic to support my blog.


I learnt about CRM and how to edit/make a website, I also helped design a hour’s log for people to sign in on using a tablet. I learnt how to create a google form doc and embedding them into a video, so it pops up at different points. I enjoyed walking around the Baltic triangle and taking pictures as it was fun to see all the artwork and to take the photos themselves as I find photography interesting. I would’ve liked to do more photo work as I see it as a passion of mine and I think I am good at it.
