Since March 9.6 million employees have been placed on the furlough scheme across the country.
When furlough started millions of people found they had a lot of new free time to think about their jobs. For some this meant finding out they wanted a career change.
Emma Rowland started the year as a choral conductor, now she is the director of the non-profit organisation Strong2gether. Emma explained why she wanted to create Strong2gether:
“It’s to help people re-grow social connections and reach out a time possibly more needed than ever”.
Although she now has Strong2gether, Emma hopes to one day be able to work with her charity whilst also being a choral conductor.
