Regulars at R2W may recognise a familiar face. This is Richard – he’s getting ready to have a placement at Oaklea Group HQ in Kendal – it’s part of his University Marketing & Business course at UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire, Preston). Richard is pretty well versed in all things R2W as he was supported by Oaklea when he was a youngster – and then did voluntary work here at the Furniture Warehouse. Anyway it’s far better if you hear from Richard himself.
The placement part of Richard’s project with us will run between now and April of 2020. Richard adds: “During that time I would spend some time with your organisation on a semi regular basis in order to get new information and ensure that what work I produce for the assignment is relevant. My thinking is I can try and spend half a day a fortnight with you in November. A few days in December (due to Christmas hols) and maybe 1 day a fortnight from Jan to April.”
There are a number of initiatives we plan for 2020 at R2W that Richard can get his teeth stuck into – some are closely guarded secrets so watch this space!
