"The research assistant programme at nfpSynergy was a great way to start my career. I was given all the support and training I needed to develop my research skills, and working with a wide variety of charities gave me a broad knowledge of the Third Sector. The office is full of dedicated, passionate and fun colleagues, and I was quickly encouraged to take on meaningful responsibility.
