Isobel McCarthy has recently spent some time with us as a summer intern, here’s her take on the experience:


I have just completed my first year at Durham University studying Politics and International Relations. Having always taken a keen interest in communication and PR, I thought Spring would be the perfect place to gain insight and experience during my Summer break.

The last few days here have been thoroughly enjoyable. The team have been so friendly and fun, allowing me to hop around their desks and ask questions.

I came in each day and was immediately given work to do with Lucia which I really appreciated as it meant I worked on a range of different projects and was kept busy. The team responded to my work and I thrived off being able to contribute and help out. My research skills, as a result, are far better, and I feel more confident now going forward.

The highlight of my week here has been having the chance to attend and contribute to a brainstorming meeting with Lucia, Simon and Nikki.

I feel very lucky to have worked here, even if it was only for a brief period of time. Thank you to the whole team for welcoming me in with open arms!
