In 2017, I was doing an internship in Yorkshire. It was there that I first ran into TCV, specifically the South Yorkshire team who were leading a series of courses that I was lucky enough to attend.
My internship ended early 2018, and I was thrilled to find the TCV Manchester team. I started volunteering with them in April while I job hunted, and it was my first day when the Senior Project Officer, Ally, told me that there was a vacancy for the Project Officer position. I eagerly applied, and here I am, a year later as Manchester’s Project Officer!
In that year, I’ve spent more time in waders than ever before, planted about 2,000 trees, and met so many different people. I’ve really enjoyed my first year. Hopefully the rest will be just as good!
