DGSD School President appointed to the RGS-IBG

Friday 16 December 2016

Congratulations to Abi Whitefield, a third-year DGSD student and School President, who is currently working on a two week internship with the RGS-IBG at their London HQ. Abi is working with the Press and Discovering Britain teams.

“The placement has been a great experience and has enabled me to learn more about the society’s work. I’ve been given a variety of interesting tasks, including partaking in research for the ‘Migrants on the Margins’ project and looking at how often RGS-IBG is mentioned in the press. This placement has enabled me to develop skills which employers will search for in the future and it will look great on my CV!”.

The deadline for applicants for Easter 2017 placements is the 31st January 2017, and for the Summer 2017 placements the deadline is the 31st March 2017.
