Lydia Hamilton to join ITV Meridian Priority


More good news on the employment front: Lydia Hamilton, who graduated last week from our BA in Journalism and the News Industry, will be joining ITV Meridian in September on a 12-month paid internship.

It's good evidence of how a strong final-year project can open doors. Lydia's TV documentary on how funding cuts are affecting black and ethnic minority arts organisations was one of the things that helped her to bag the internship.

It's great news for Lydia, for Meridian and for us here at the CfJ.

Trebles all round.
