"Tree Aid is an organisation that makes you feel passionate about coming to work. Every staff member is focused on delivering a huge impact, working closely together and being transparent, ethical and data driven every step of the way. In the 18 months I have been here (through Covid), we have grown our income, and the impact of our projects, significantly. This has relied heavily on using our database more efficiently than ever on a daily basis. If you are passionate about climate change, poverty and data, you will fit right in and see the difference you are making every month." - Konna

"I have been able to learn so much as part of this team. There was a huge learning curve and it was very fast paced but I have settled into the role now and bridge the areas between donors, fundraising and accounts. I feel I am making a difference to donor stewardship and that’s important to me. Everyone, particularly those I work with day-to-day, are amazing. They support and guide where guidance is needed and I never worry about asking for help." - Ailsa
