But, don’t take us at face value, meet Lucy.
“During my final year of university, I volunteered at The Women’s Organisation one day per week, seeking to gain office experience in an environment that matched my own values and interests. Studying media and sociology, The Women’s Organisation was the perfect place to immerse myself.
“I started out on the administration team, supporting with reception and office admin while learning more about the organisation’s work and the various teams and skill sets that existed within the company. This gave me the space to understand what team or role I would like to be a part of in the future, and has proved invaluable to my career path.
“I discovered my passion in marketing, communications and events, and that I was particularly motivated by working for social businesses with purpose. I loved my time volunteering there, so much so that I applied for a job once I finished my degree and was able to join as a full-time member of the marketing team.
“I stayed for a total of five years and believe that the organisation helped to fast-track my personal success. The fast-paced environment allowed me to work on a range of projects and meant that I was always challenging myself to be and do better. My time at The Women’s Organisation helped me to understand the type of person and the type of professional I want to be. I still see the values of The Women’s Org has instilled in me, and I know that I will carry them throughout my entire career. I would advise anyone lucky enough to be offered the chance to start their career at The Women’s Organisation to grab that opportunity with both hands.” Lucy Cashman, Digital Innovations and Project Manager, ADHD Foundation.
