My internship with IRW has been a real eye opener. Not only have I been able to develop my skills right from the outset, I also get to see the amount of background work that goes into running an efficient and successful organisation. It has been very rewarding being able to contribute towards a shared goal.

MISSION: ASSISTING THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCE DEPARTMENT
DURATION: 3 MONTHS

I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a BSc in Accounting and Finance. I then went onto become an associate member of the CIPD after studying Human Resource Practice.

I decided to apply for the internship to develop my current skillset and also gain some invaluable experience within a finance role. I also thought it would be a great platform to start a career in the humanitarian sector.

The role itself has been challenging, getting familiar with the systems and practices that are implemented throughout the organisation can take a while. However, with all the help and guidance available from the team, it made the process so much easier. I have been able to work on a range of tasks, from setting up projects, completing ledger entries to reviewing budgets. I also got to assist the finance officer who was based in Yemen which helped further develop my communication skills and gain a different perspective from those who are working in the field offices.
