3SG welcomes new employee Emma!

We're really excited to announce a new addition to our team, Emma, who has started in a brand new role as a part-time Administrator. As the 3SG membership continues to grow, with over 160 local organisations now part of the network, it was the perfect time to grow the team and ensure we’re able to continue to offer support in a range of ways. Emma’s official first day was yesterday, so our Coordinator Miles, took the opportunity to ask a few questions to find out more about Emma and her motivations behind joining 3SG. You can read the full Q&A below:

Tell us a little bit about yourself (Where you live or are from, studying? Hobbies etc)

Hi! So I’m from Bath originally, but I’ve lived all over including Leeds, Swansea and St. Albans. I got my bachelors degree in Asia Pacific Studies from the University of Leeds, and am currently studying part time for my masters in International Relations at the University of Bristol, alongside my commitment to 3SG.

I enjoy reading, cooking ( my brownies are legendary!), socialising with friends and travelling (when possible!). I’m a big animal lover too, and my cat is the apple of my eye!

What interested you about working for 3SG? Have you had any previous involvement/experience with third sector organisations?

I have worked and volunteered with third sector organisations in the past, namely a small Chinese heritage charity in London, and the RSPCA in Leeds. I thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with both and felt strongly that the culture and work ethics of the third sector were well aligned with my own motivations and interests. Overall, I’m very keen to pursue job satisfaction in an organisation that allows me to be creative, and to help others. I feel that 3SG is a great fit for me in this regard, and I’m excited to contribute and get involved in a variety of projects.

What are you most looking forward to doing as part of your role?

I’m looking forward to learning more about the charities and third sector groups of BaNES, and the different ways that we can support them. I’m also excited by the fact that the role is brand new, and 3SG is growing, and all the variety of opportunities and different projects this may bring to the role and team.

What food could you not live without?

My absolute favourite cuisine is Indian. I spent a month in India and never got tired of the food, it’s delicious!
