So, here’s my news: The Carpenter’s Shop in Cape Town has a new Marketing Manager. And it’s me. I start officially in January (but actually I’ve already started …because there’re a thousand things to do, and because I can’t wait!)
The Carpenter’s Shop is a non-profit, public-benefit organisation that offers rehabilitation services, training and accommodation to people in need so that they can re-integrate into society. It is committed to providing academically-disadvantaged people with skills that will help them achieve independence.
After a 3-month training period, the trainees are already producing awesome wooden items from bookcases, wine crates and shelving to breadboards, benches and storage boxes. This is where I come in.
Yes, there’s a Plan. Yes, I’m excited. Yes, I’m totally going to love this challenge, and working with the amazing people I’ve met there.
And in case you were wondering, this blog – Nice Piece of Work – will not be about The Carpenter’s Shop (Nice Piece of Work will always be ONLY ABOUT ME, heh!) TCS will have its own blog very shortly, which I am of course hoping you will all be interested in subscribing to…
Back soon x
