For those of you that have never heard of Rainbow Trust before, they are a children's charity that help support families that have a child with a life-threatening or terminal illness. The work they do is absolutely amazing and I wish they were more well-known! The new branding and website will definitely help them!
I was working in the digital/ marketing team upstairs doing all the fun digi stuff! I was always told that I came at a good time as I was going to be working during the new brand and website launch. As I was in the digital team, I would more so be working on the new website. I was lucky enough to see some of the designing of the website to helping to build some pages on the website to the final launch! I really felt as though I was part of a family working there, everyone in the whole charity were so nice and it was great to meet such interesting people!
I had many responsibilities including creating web pages for the old and new websites on jobs, events and more, using Photoshop to edit images for the website and using social media on behalf of the charity. I've learnt a lot and this experience will definitely help me in the future!
Other things I enjoyed was the intern battle of the boutiques apprentice style challenge, I was lucky enough to take part in. Sadly my team lost, but we raised more money than the other team! They especially loved my teams window displays which I was very proud of. George's angels did well!
DB one day was also very fun! This was a fundraising event at Deutsche Bank where employees could donate a day's salary. An amazing sum of money was raised! This was something I never imagined doing, but it was a great experience especially dressing up. I even met Hugo Taylor from Made in Chelsea and Gillian Wright from Eastender's, they were a delight!
During my internship I attended many workshops, even email marketing training at a digital agency in London! The other workshops consisted of public speaking, PowerPoint and networking which all were very useful!
I have enjoyed my 3 months at Rainbow Trust, taking away a wealth of skills and experience I have gained during my time there. Rainbow Trust have a fresh new brand and website and I wish them every success!
Already missing my marketing team - wish you all the best: Kate, Oonagh, Sim, John, Sarah, Jasmin, Julie, Kim, Sandy and Barry!
