Meetings to discuss fundraising strategies most often take place in rooms crowded with computer tables and cardboard boxes, with staff perching themselves on every available free space, including table tops, steaming mugs of coffee in hand. Discussions on budgets, deadlines and sponsorship are often interspersed with heated debates on the aesthetics of Gangnam Style, the reasons for Europe’s failing economy and whether India should have a cultural policy, to name a few.
IFA is a vibrant place to work at, one that will challenge you to rediscover yourself.
