Opportunities & Volunteering
From graduate Rosie Vincent:
“We’ve got a number of positions in Market Research that have come up at Roman Road Trust. It would involve visiting local businesses in pairs to conduct survey work and gather footfall info. We’re looking to take on a few people. The roles will be part time and paid in gift vouchers of their choice – just in time for the festive purchases!”
