School of English student appointed as Summer Field Communications Officer in Costa Rica

Caitlin Casey, a student on the School’s English and American Literature and Creative Writing with a Placement Year programme, has been invited to undertake a second placement, this time at Frontier’s field camp in the Latin American country.

Caitlin was just coming to the end of her placement working as a London based communications intern when she was approached to apply for a second placement with the charity, which helps to organise voluntary conservation and research projects around the world.  Caitlin will be working as a member of Frontier’s staff, handling social media, promotional photography, media liaison and journalism projects whilst helping to support a team of some 40 volunteers and researchers at the Frontier camp in Corcovado National Park near Puerto Jimenez.

We wish Caitlin well on her new placement and looking forward to seeing some amazing photographs when she returns to the School in the autumn.
