My week with ENABLE Scotland - Eve Bradley

My name is Eve, I am a pupil at Trinity High School but this week I came to Enable Scotland to do my work experience. The reason I asked Enable Scotland if I could do my work experience there was because although I did know a small bit about all of the amazing things they do, I wanted to know more. I was really nervous about meeting everyone and nervous in case I was rubbish at everything they asked me to do but as soon as I got there they were all really friendly and made me feel so welcome and part of the Enable Scotland family. During my time at Enable I have worked with the marketing team, the fundraising team and the legal team all of which I have loved working with, I have been allowed to sit in on various meetings which I really enjoyed as I was able to learn even more about all the events that Enable Scotland have coming up to raise money for their charity. I really liked seeing how all the different departments contribute to the running of Enable Scotland and it was great to get to know all of the different members of staff and learn about what they do. I also learned about other charities that Enable Scotland work with and all of the campaigns that they work on together. I am so glad that I was allowed to do my work experience in Enable Scotland because it is such an inspirational charity that everyone should get involved in and support. After my week here I have decided that I would like to do some voluntary work at Enable Scotland when I am a bit older because I have watched all the hard work that goes into making everything they do possible and a couple of the people I have been working with have said to me that yes they may have really busy days at work and yes they may get a little bit stressed out at times but it is all worth it when they go home at night and get a feeling of satisfaction that during their busy day they might have just made someone’s life a lot better and that’s when they realise that it is all worth it. During my time at Enable Scotland I have realised that the people that work here aren’t just workers, they are more like a wee family. I am really grateful to everyone at Enable Scotland for making my time here really enjoyable! I wish I could stay here instead of going back to school!
