WHAT OUR EMPLOYEES THINK
I began Volunteering with the Women’s Consortium In 2019. This year (2021) I have been put forward & fully funded to study my Post Graduate qualification as a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) with the University of Exeter. Without Women’s Consortium supporting & encouraging me, this would not have been possible. I am truly grateful.
I love working with Khaleda & the team. I have found the Women’s Consortium to be so unique, as I can truly say it’s like being part of a family, as employees we are treasured, we are continually supported to gain new knowledge and skill, so that we can develop into the best versions of ourselves.
Continued personal development is of true importance to Women’s Consortium, who constantly offer training to their staff so that we as a team, are able to offer those that seek our support, the best of us as therapists. At present I cannot see myself leaving the Women’s Consortium as I believe that what we have here as a team is very special & I love being part of that team.

I gained confidence, team building and communication skills at a variety of levels which enabled me to work more effectively. It was a role I appreciated, and I have happy memories of Women’s consortium
Afsana Begum, Human Resources Manager, 2015
Having undergone substantial part of my training with Women’s Consortium, not only had I the opportunity of working with clients from different backgrounds but also was able to work with a range of issues. While this was the kind of exposure I was looking forward to, it has enabled me to sharpen my skills towards a fulfilling career in counselling. Women’s Consortium work as a team to support the community, and the management ensures the trainees get the requisite training. The most fascinating part about working for Women’s Consortium is, they are flexible and easily approachable, and I consider it to be a privilege to be part of such a wonderful team.

Komee MakKnight, Counselling Placement, 2020 - Present
Since joining the Women’s Consortium after a 6-year career gap I have thoroughly enjoyed the varied work and broad range of colleagues I interact with regularly. I have appreciated the support received by my manager throughout. My role has developed from one that was primarily admin based to a managerial role. This reflects in the director’s ethos of nurturing employees/volunteers to flourish, there are always countless opportunities for training and development. The organisation is one that has a work ethic where we all work from the heart, and this shows in the results provided to our service users.
