Ilyaz’s employment experience

Senior Supporter Retention Officer, Fundraising Team

I started volunteering at Refugee Council in 2014, helping out with administration tasks in the fundraising team. I had applied for a full-time role and over the subsequent five years I have had several job opportunities which have enabled me to develop my skills and my career and this has enabled me to learn so much!

In my current role as Supporter Retention Officer, I now manage the appeals and biannual newsletters which are sent to our amazing supporters. It has been exciting to see a lot of new development happen during the time I have been here, and when in doubt I am surrounded by kind, supportive colleagues, in my team and across the organisation. I am really happy working here and am very happy to be able to do something that makes a difference!
