Furlonteer Q&A with Emily Tyson
Please could you introduce yourself to us and how you came to hear about Furlonteer? I'm Emily, I'm a London based Graphic Designer working in the hospitality/luxury travel industry. As soon as I was furloughed, I was keen to volunteer in any shape or form. I came across Furlonteer on LinkedIn and was matched with Supernova.
Could you tell us a little about the charity you’ve been matched with and your role in helping them? Supernova is a unique crowdfunding website for Scientific Research Projects, providing the world's scientists with an exciting new channel, to receive the support required to carry out their vital research.
So far I've been helping to create a social media strategy and content. The website is currently being built and the team are gearing up for a launch, so the next step for me is to help with the website design and adapt for mobile.
Could you give any advice or tips to other people considering signing up to Furlonteer?
To anyone who's thinking of signing up to Furlonteer, I would highly recommend it. You might end up working with a business that's in a completely different industry to the one you're currently in and it's a great way to learn new skills.
