    A week at RNIB Cymru


    For my first ever time experiencing the world of work, I visited the RNIB offices in Cardiff. The experience was so enlightening and helpful and has really given me a positive outlook on working in an office space.

    At the organisation, I had the opportunity to work within a variety of departments. It was amazing to witness the hard work that RNIB puts into aiding and supporting blind and partially sighted people!
