Visit this Friday Feb 28 from Rachel Russell from Express Online

She will be here about noon and will speak to any year groups that can join us in G1-04.  Rob has said people in his MA/YiJ groups can join in, if they are not on the trail of Greta in Bristol.

Rachel will talk about her experience in journalism and also about a plan she has to recruit graduates and students for either paid contracts or paid occasional freelance shifts.
