National Graduate Development Trainee: Experience at CRP27th March 2017 / Posted by CRP Team
Six months ago I started a work placement with Cross River Partnership (CRP) through the National Graduate Development Programme. Like most people, I was completely unaware of the amount and scale of work that CRP are involved in. From building bridges (literally) and green walls to supporting local people into employment and improving London’s toxic air, CRP really does contribute in so many ways to delivering London’s future.
Over the past few months I have worked with the New West End Company to deliver their air quality strategy, including developing a preferred supplier scheme website, the West End Buyers Club. I have also managed to squeeze in some time to observe deliveries and interview businesses along Oxford Street, help to create a new branding image for CRP, including the development of their new business plan, and have witnessed so many more incredible CRP projects being carried out.
Now my work placement with CRP is coming to a close and I’m moving on to another team. I am very grateful to the CRP team for how welcoming and supportive they have been throughout my time with them and for the many opportunities that have been presented to me. I look forward to following what CRP will achieve in the future!
