As part of the event, placement students were invited to create a poster to promote their placement employer and describe their role in the department. Emilia designed her poster in RSK colours and brought along some RSK marketing brochures, case studies and bags to distribute to interested students and lecturers.

Emilia enjoyed talking to the attendees about RSK and providing an insight into her role during the last year.
“I really enjoyed talking to people about RSK and my role, as many people weren’t sure what RSK was about and what we do,” comments Emilia. “It felt easy to talk to everyone, as they all seemed very interested in what I had to say.”
RSK has a history of working with year-in-industry placement students from the University of Hertfordshire, providing placements to undergraduate students to offer high-quality industry experience to supplement their studies. RSK has offered environmental placement students experience within the EPD team in previous years and has welcomed them back as graduates after they have completed their studies.
