I am an Outreach and Engagement Officer for the Building Better Opportunities, Refugees Into Sustainable Employment (BBO RISE) Programme. I am responsible for finding and enrolling eligible participants onto the programme. Through building relationships with organisations in the targeted boroughs, I aim to receive referrals for the programme.
My skills & experience
I have experience working as the treasurer of a student-led society at university that focussed on homelessness in the city of Manchester. My responsibilities included organising fundraisers; raising awareness through educational events; and helping coordinate the volunteer schedule for society members that were volunteering at homeless shelters in Manchester. Since graduating, I spent three months volunteering at a youth hostel for refugees between the ages of 16 – 21. I was responsible for delivering educational workshops and running events for the service users.
My hobbies & interests
I enjoy spending my spare time with friends and family. Working with refugees is my passion. My two main interests are football and art. I am a big Liverpool FC fan.
