After 10 years of working for MEV and previously the Commonwealth Games, the time has come for Mark and Chris to move on. As of Thursday 3rd March (Mark) and Friday 4th March (Chris) we will both be leaving the employment of Manchester City Council.
These past 10 years have been a wonderful experience for both of us, we have learnt so much and been given the opportunity to work with many fantastic people from all walks of life. We will greatly miss being part of such a talented, committed and fun team, as well as our every day communications with our many lovely and dedicated volunteers.
We do hope that the work we have done for MEV has been of use to you, our volunteers. We both feel very proud to have been able to support so many of you into various training courses and employment, as well as countless volunteering opportunities.
Please be assured that this does not mean the end of MEV, as Kristian Dodsworth, the current Project Officer will continue in his role, providing quality opportunities and support for the hundreds of volunteers on our database.
Kristian will be responsible for the day to day volunteering operations, so from today all enquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com or via calling 0161 234 1532.
Since the central team will reduce by two thirds, MEV will have a reduced capacity. We would therefore ask that you please be patient during this period of transition. For those of you who have Internet access, it would help Kristian greatly if you could use the website as a means of adding interest in events and, most importantly, recording your hours.
Finally, we would like to thank you all for your support over the last 10 years, and wish you all the very best for the future.
Mark and Chris
