Alisa's story

St Wilfrid’s cares about staff development and that doesn’t mean just the nurses and doctors. I have been in the fundraising team for two and a half years and have had lots of opportunities to learn new skills and develop my fundraising career. I’ve attended courses run by the Institute of Fundraising, and been on London Business Forum study days. As well as these formal training opportunities, St Wilfrid’s is good at noticing local opportunities. The whole team had the chance to learn with Chichester University last year on a short fundraising summer course. St Wilfrid’s really does care about giving the staff the chance to grow and develop and in return they get the best from us.
