After three and a half months, my internship at Small Works is over!
Small Works is a project that has been set up by Clear Village in both King’s Cross and Victoria, London. Both allow access for small organisations (with a focus on community led work) to cheaper desk rental; with the stipulation that all groups do ‘give back’ projects that directly enhance the lives of the local communities.
I had such an incredible time working with the team in King’s Cross, London. It gave me the opportunity to see how a project was researched, developed and delivered- from beginning to end. The local community were amazing and it was such a pleasure to get to know them all.
I was involved with a conference about people and place, I helped deliver a fantastic Project Soup; and I was also able to contribute and learn about the daily running of a small business hub.
Below is a testimonial from my Project Manager, whom I shadowed for the 3 months:
“During Emma’s internship, she worked closely with our Community Managers on the Small Works program. I know first-hand that Emma performs with aplomb in challenging situations. Whether it’s working on the ground; driving new outreach initiatives, supporting the core team at our annual conference or working alongside partner organisations on innovative solutions to crowd-funding, hyper-local projects. She is a scientific humanist, with a genuine caring for others. It should come as no surprise that Emma is well-liked and admired by her peers.”
