Katja LawlerHost: Kat has worked as a professional fundraiser at large and small charities in the UK. She studied English Language and Literature at University as well as volunteering with charities during this time.

Careers in Fundraising are a vital part of ensuring large charities can carry out all the work they do. In this class, Kat will talk through a day in the life of a professional fundraiser. Students will hear about the journey she took in her career to get there and some of the alternative routes into the industry. Kat will also discuss some of the skills they utilise every day in the job covering some of the highs and lows.

This is a great opportunity to get an insight into this career and some guidance if it is a career you are keen to pursue but also a great class for students who don't know what career path they'd like to follow and are looking for some inspiration!
