As a fundraiser I am inspired by the amazing support we receive from people whose lives have been touched by epilepsy. I love that my job is hugely varied with opportunities to be creative (designing fundraising resources and writing about the work) analytical (looking at fundraising data and analysing trends) and interpersonal (meeting people and finding out about why they are fundraising)”

The flexible work-life balance has been a life saver and helped me manage my wellbeing throughout a very challenging period.”
