I am currently working for a Trust that oversees two Schools in Central London. I work within the Development department supporting the fundraising manager with creative, organisational, administrative and fundraising tasks. I thrive most in projects where creative idea-generation and organisation is at the core. I have produced written content and aesthetic designs for websites, silent auctions, events, posters and leaflets (click for examples). I have enjoyed gaining valuable experience organising and managing large events (150+ people). I have also been instrumental in developing relations and partnerships with local businesses in order to enhance the positive impact of both schools on the wider, local community.

Stop the Traffik is an international charity working to eradicate the human trafficking trade. I have run workshops to educate other students and managed a wide range of fund-raising events. A huge team triumph last year was supporting the local charity Snowdrop, aiding women who are survivors of human trafficking by raising funds for the continuation of their vital project. I have gained experience in promoting awareness via social mediaa and advertising on campus. I have sustained a really positive relationship with the organisers of other charity projects and always maintained a professional demeanour. I have continued my dedication to this charity by running the Sheffield Half Marathon every year.
Having experience in an office-based environment allowed me to build competence in communication with all levels of management.
