Roselle teamed up with RGU to give one of its students a paid summer placement next year to enhance their development on the events management course.

Roselle, which reports a turnover of £3m, will give Rachel Forsyth, a first year events management student a chance to shine, enlisting her to help organise large scale corporate events over a three-month period.

Charlotte McIntosh, managing director at Roselle Events, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer Rachel a place with us and it’s a great opportunity for her to get a first hand experience of working for a busy events company.

"Having been to university myself, I understand how important it is to gain some hands-on experience in the industry before you start looking for work, as it not only gives you a feel for the work you could be doing, but also helps you find out if it is something you really want to do.

"As well as being a great exercise for students, having an intern is great for us too. It not only gives us a chance to meet the future talent of the events industry but also brings in a fresh pair of eyes to the different events we are planning for clients.

Forsyth won the internship with Roselle after achieving the highest grades on her course over the last year.

She said: "I am really looking forward to starting my placement with Roselle, it a fantastic opportunity and I am hoping it will provide me with excellent experience and exposure to take forward in my future career in this competitive business sector. It's incredibly exciting and I can't wait to start."
