Volunteering with BVA confirms next chapter in Stephanie’s marketing career

Stephanie Audry worked in Basingstoke Voluntary Action (BVA) as a Marketing Volunteer to help review the email newsletter design. She soon applied her solid marketing expertise to other BVA projects, quickly building her knowledge of the local third sector along the way and confirming her wish to work for charities full-time.

Volunteering is a win-win scenario

Her manager at BVA shared her experience with Stephanie

We now have a great monthly Members Newsletter, and Stephanie’s research into our values and objectives allowed us to identify two areas of social media activity to focus on next. …Without Stephanie’s passion and knowledge, BVA wouldn’t have had the skills required to review how best to meet our communications objectives for charity information. She has been a true asset.”” – Rebecca Kennelly, BVA Group Development

While BVA gained expert marketing support, Stephanie gained valuable third sector knowledge: 

“Volunteering at BVA has allowed me to build up third sector experience quickly. I have worked closely with the Chief Executive, the Development Team and the Volunteer Centre to understand their communication and marketing needs. I have also gained an insight into common pain points experienced by many charities, voluntary and community organisations, such as fundraising, social media strategy and working with the media. …It’s really rewarding to know my marketing work helps support the vibrant voluntary sector in Basingstoke and Deane.” – Stephanie Audry, Marketing Volunteer
