I started working for the MCF straight after university. I had volunteered for a few charities while I was studying and realised that the charity sector was the right career path for me.

 

I initially worked part time on the enquiries team and part time in marketing. Although I loved helping people directly on the phone, over time I discovered that my skills were better suited to supporting the MCF from behind the scenes, and I’m now a full-time marketing executive.

 

I love working for the MCF because it’s just so varied; we support people of all ages and backgrounds and it’s a real privilege to hear their stories and share them with the world. I like to think of my role in the marketing team as being very supportive, not just to our beneficiaries, but also to our donors, volunteers and the rest of the staff, helping to shine a light on the brilliant work that they do.
