Creative Internships Blog Week 36

Rebecca Hobbs, Wales Millennium Centre

After what feels like no time at all, we’re into the final month of the creative internship and I’m just not ready to leave Team Dev! Thankfully, I’m not going to have to any time soon. From the beginning of August, I am excited to be starting a yearlong secondment as part time Business Development Officer here at the Centre. After only nine months, I’m so grateful that my colleagues have the confidence in me to step up and take on this new challenge. I’m very much looking forward to bringing everything I’ve learned this year to a more specialised role which is going to be heavily led by account management. The next few weeks are going to involve juggling a handover and finishing up my internship objectives so there’s going to be lots of caffeine involved.

As if the thought of starting one new job isn’t daunting enough, I’m a glutton for punishment and come August will also be joining the team at National Dance Company Wales, following their creation of a part time fundraising role. This is a huge step for the organisation (and for me!) and marks the start of a new development that I am extremely excited to be a part of. NDCW’s commitment to placing a fundraising culture at the heart of their organisation has huge potential and I can’t wait to see what the next few years hold for them. Working in a smaller organisation with a fundraising team of two is undoubtedly going to bring new unforeseen challenges but it offers a real opportunity to make my mark and that is hugely exciting.
