Hi, I’m Jon, I work in marketing and communications focusing on content design, and I bring use these same skills volunteering with the Carers Centre.
I volunteered initially to work on video projects as an editor but have branched out into other design roles as required.
After university I briefly temped with the older adults’ social services team as an admin. Seeing how much work being a carer is, and how little support is available, I volunteered with The Carers Centre.
Since joining I’ve got to work on tons of great projects, try new ideas and work with some great people. It’s provided me with some great experience that I’m certain has contributed to my professional success.
I’ve been able to volunteer remotely, which is really convenient, and The Carers Centre always lets me know when there’s opportunities for training and gaining new skills.
