Volunteering with FTCT!
Friday, July 10th, 2015 | Posted in Blog
This week, we have a guest blogger, Cheyenne who has been volunteering with us since May! This is her final week with us so she would like to share her experience of volunteering with FTCT with you! It has been great to have her on board and wish her all the best. Now, over to Cheyenne…
I began volunteering at FTCT in May 2015, and I have learnt so much on my journey with the charity. My role was as a marketing admin assistant to assist the marketing and communications manager with their annual industry campaign, adding to the list of industry contacts on the database and contacting companies to let them know about what FTCT do. Alongside this I wrote blogs and helped design the newsletter, as well as updating the social media pages.
The FTCT team are so welcoming – made up of five spectacular females, who do a great job of helping employees who are having financial difficulties with children in the UK fashion and textile industry.
I am extremely passionate about marketing, and after a gap in my career after university, I want to enter a role that marries that passion with my ambition to help people. The experience I have gained at FTCT has given me the chance to develop my skills – and what is even better is it is all for a good cause!
I was made to feel part of the team and the director, Anna, invited me to company events such as Meet the Manufacturer (see the pic of me at the event above!). That was a fantastic opportunity to network and represent the charity. Janine, the marketing manager is so so supportive and has really made my time at FTCT an incredible experience.
I will genuinely miss the amazing, kind hearted team and thank them all for a wonderful experience and helping me develop my skills.
If you want to gain experience in the charity sector, and would love to be part of a friendly, supportive team, I would urge you to apply for a volunteer role with FTCT!
