My voluntary placement resulted in a paid placement in an area I’m extremely passionate about, opening up wider career avenues and opportunities. I also developed my IT skills throughout this opportunity, a critical skill in working with vulnerable adults.
Voluntary placement leads to a paid marketing position
The charity organisation Red Rose Recovery Lancashire provided an invaluable opportunity for Caitlin to integrate her love of psychology, communication skills, and extensive knowledge of social media. Red Rose Recovery aims to support people in recovery from dependencies and imprisonment, or other vulnerable groups in the community. The charity was so impressed with Caitlin’s performance, they offered her a paid role as a media and marketing assistant.
Caitlin combines her love for psychology and social media to secure a job offer.
“Caitlin demonstrated excellent initiative and self-management skills throughout her placement. She enthusiastically developed new skills through additional training. Caitlin excelled in working independently and as a team member, resulting in her securing a paid position with us.”
