Katie has been with Demelza as the Community Manager for South East London since 2019 – but what is a Community Manager, and what does an average day look like for Katie? We sat down with her to find out!
The role of a Community Manager at Demelza
“My main role is to be out in the community spreading the word about Demelza and the work that we do and encouraging people to sign up to support us. I deliver a lot of talks and presentations; I will follow the supporter on their journey helping to guide their fundraising and at the other end when funds have been raised I get to do the cheque presentations – you might have seen those massive, big cardboard cheques in some of our photos, I’m normally involved with those! It’s a great visual representation of the hard work that goes into fundraising out in our communities. It’s also lovely because we’re starting to be able to go out and about again, actually meeting people and talking to them in person instead of virtually – that’s really exciting.”
