Previous communications volunteer Rebekkah Barbuscia says:

Volunteering with the Communications team has been such a fantastic opportunity to gain solid experiences and insights into the day-to-day life of a busy and ambitious communications team. From day one, I was able to dive in, learn new things, expand my skillset and contribute on a variety of topics, projects and issues. Working closely with the programme teams and other staff allowed me to also gain an insight into the reach of their work, and on how the Communications team can collaborate within an organisation to assure best results.

 

The international impact of Conciliation Resource’s work meant that the work was interesting, engaging and relevant throughout. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to join such an inspirational, friendly and supportive organisation – in addition to the fact that my volunteer experience helped me make a first and significant professional move into the Communications sector
