I am based at the Terrence Higgins Trust head office as part of the Human Resource Team.
As the HR Admin volunteer I support the HR team one day a week with filing and general administration tasks.
I have only been volunteering with the trust for three months. So far, it has been really enjoyable and I have learnt a lot. It’s great because the experience I gain here I hope will help me with my studies and support my move into a career in HR.
I chose to volunteer with the Terrence Higgins Trust as a friend of mine used to work for the trust and they always spoke really highly of them. It was always really interesting to hear about the amazing work that they completed and how they supported people living with HIV in the UK. I wanted to be part of that, so I decided to contact them and apply to support the organisation as a volunteer.
Personally, the best part of my volunteering experience so far has been the people. Everyone is so friendly and supportive, I felt instantly welcome. I am looking forward to learning more about the organisation and taking on more challenging work.
