The University has been contacted by The Writer, a brand language consultancy based in London. Read on if you would be interested in a two-day work experience placement in April.
Work experience. Chances are the last time you were roped into work experience, you were at school. A week-long stint somewhere obscure that may or may not have had anything to do with your studies.
Thankfully, our work experience is a little different. It’s two days of writing exercises, fun things to get you thinking and lots more to show you that a career in writing isn’t just for journalists or publishers.
You’ll get a taste of agency life at Writer HQ, right next to London’s Borough Market. And if you’re extra brilliant, we might invite you back for a paid internship (and even a job).
It’s for you if:
Got 300 words up your sleeve?
Last, but not least, who are we again?
The Writer is the world’s largest brand language consultancy. We work with companies all over the world to get their words working harder. We help brands stand out from their competitors, improve how they deal with customers, shape their culture, and even make and save them cold, hard cash.
We’ve shown O2 how to ‘Be more dog’, come up with the latest names for the Lynx bodyspray your little brother probably wears, and helped define how Barbie should sound on Facebook. And we’ve trained over 250,000 people in how to write professionally, with personality.
The management team of the National Trust at Bodiam Castle in East Susses has advertised a unique opportunity for one or two students to enrich their knowledge and understanding of how museums or heritage bodies work.
They are looking for students to become members of the Bodiam Advisory Committee, taking a role in decision-making about the Castle and experiencing first hand how the National Trust works with inherited bodies.
Any student interested in a future within museums or heritage will gain enormous insights into the way heritage charities work with trustees and similar bodies. For example, they will gain first-hand understanding of the pressures to conserve and protect the built and landscape environments, whilst also raising necessary funds to carry out such work.
The committee helps the National Trust protect the castle, given to the nation by Lord Curzon. Bodiam is a fascinating site, which, as well as being a fourteenth-century moated castle, includes within its landscape evidence of a key Neolithic, then Roman, then Medieval, cross roads; a Roman Fort; and evidence of medieval fish and Mill ponds. Its wharf area was once a thriving port and it is still possible to travel by boat to Bodiam Castle.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Dr Michele Moatt at Michele.Moatt@nationaltrust.org.uk with your CV and a statement of interest.
This is a short note to say that unfortunately the talk on defence analysis by Sam Cranny-Evans has been cancelled due to the snow last week – events have had to be moved around, so we will instead be hosting Sam later on this year.
Kent Union is holding a workshop on how to find a part-time job with the use of services offered by the Jobshop, and how to make yourself more competitive when looking for a job with tips on CVs and covering letters. They will also be talking about the Employability Points scheme and the benefits it offers.
The workshop will be held this week, and again next week:
If you can’t attend either session, you can read more about the Jobshop in the guest post Damian Harateh, the Jobshop student ambassador, wrote a few weeks ago.
