Fun and challening work environment
Street Fundraiser (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 11 April 2017
Working as a Street Fundraiser for Amnesty International was a wonderful experience and one that I will cherish for a long time. What I learnt while I was there was how to interact respectfully and engagingly with the public, as well as how to work together with others in order to make a difference in the lives of others, in that I was able to discuss human rights and stress their importance on a daily basis at work. As part of a team, I found it easy to rely on my colleagues and to ensure that they could rely on myself in return. It was often a united and comfortable working environment in which I enjoyed working with others.
On a typical day at work, I would meet and engage with a vast array of people, often making each day fun and unpredictable. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction that came from knowing that I was able to help Amnesty International make a difference by informing others of the aid that they could provide for human rights campaigners by becoming a member of this organisation.
