Project Co-ordinator Talking Together

Hello. My name is Ayan. I’m a Talking Together Project Co-ordinator for TimeBank in Birmingham. My role is to recruit and train volunteer English tutors to deliver free basic English classes across the city. I enjoy working on this project at TimeBank as it allows me to meet lots of different people from various communities.

Prior to this job I’ve worked at a domestic violence charity for six years as a community development worker. I was responsible for delivering community outreach projects and developing and implementing domestic abuse training for professionals. I spend a lot of time working with schools on safeguarding.

I love that TimeBank allows employees to have five volunteering days a year. I spend mine volunteering at a primary school. This has prompted me to apply to be a School Governor which I was elected as recently.
