Elise’s story

'Volunteering at WECIL gave Elise the confidence and specific skills she needed, just before starting her professional life '

My name is Elise and I am French. I have worked for WECIL during several mouths, on a work placement program.

After my communication studies, I decided to go abroad in order to improve my English language and to have a significant experience in the UK.

I was placed in WECIL as a volunteer communication and marketing assistant.

This experience was a real opportunity for me, and it has been very rich for different reasons.

From a professional point of view, I have been able to use my communication and graphic design skills. I have learned new  vocabulary specific to this type of work and I have participated in interesting events and projects (drop in sessions, radio shows etc).

On a personal side, it was a pleasure to work for a good cause such as supporting disabled people in Bristol. The volunteering has given much more meaning to my travels.

WECIL’s team is really patient, open-minded and friendly. Inspite of my limited English at the beginning of the internship, they took the time to understand me.
I feel really well received and I am happy to be part of the WECIL Community!
