"I was given responsibility from day one, coordinating Christmas gift sets to market and attending a PR event for two of our brands, Shu Uemura and Kiehl’s"
James Wilkinson, Marketing Summer Intern, University of Nottingham
"From day one everyone was very welcoming and eager to help whenever it was needed. Having my own Supply Chain project for the summer has allowed me to work on a real brand with real customers, therefore having a real impact on the business"
