Education: MSci Zoology, University of Bristol
My responsibilities at Buffalo:
My role as Campaign Officer involves working with clients from the beginning to the end of campaigns, raising money via telephone fundraising. I act as a contact point for the client and this usually involves assessing the fundraising needs of the client, organising the data, recruiting, training and supervising callers during the telethons and finalising the wrap up of the campaign.
Why I chose to work for Buffalo:
During my time at university I was lucky enough to receive bursaries to help me pursue my passion for Zoology. Without this money, university would have been much more of a struggle, and so I have experienced the fantastic benefits that these campaigns can give you. Working for Buffalo now gives me a chance to give back and help those who are in a similar situation to myself, as well as developing and broadening a variety of skills in a professional environment.
