As a Cardiffian, I was delighted to read in the South Wales Echo today the news that Cardiff has been given the opportunity to host four matches in the 2020 Euro Championships.


After the success of the city hosting the UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid and Juventus at the Principality Stadium, and the plans for improved transport linked such as the rail station at St Mellons, the city has a real chance of winning the vote on the 7th December.

The benefits to the city and region could be as much as the French Bordeaux experienced when hosting games in the 2016 championship, which raised over £100 million for the region.

I wish Alan Hamer and the rest of the FAW preparing the bid all the success, with best wishes for winning such submission.

Anna’s Experience at Petersens

Posted: November 10, 2017 in Uncategorized

My name is Anna Dutton and I am a second-year undergraduate at Cardiff University. Alongside my studies I felt that work experience was a valuable insight into the world of work after I graduate. Spending some time with Petersens has been an interesting way of exploring the industry and experiencing a working environment.

As this was only the second time I’ve ever done work experience, I chose to do my experience with Petersens as I liked the fact it was a smaller company. After reading about the company, I liked the set-up of helping a network of clients and helping them achieve their goals.

Over the past four days I have been given a series of tasks and objectives to complete. These have included: scheduling and planning social media posts on behalf of clients; writing blogs and articles; researching clients; creating databases and recording press coverage for clients. I have found them interesting as before I didn’t fully understand the role of a PR company- after completing these tasks I am now more aware.

This experience has taught me that the world of work is quite different to that of University. It has furthered my prioritising skills and provided a new environment for me to work in. I have learnt that work experience is necessary to find future jobs and I will carry this experience forward when I apply for jobs after I graduate.

I would like to conclude this blog by thanking the staff at Petersens for having me over the last few days. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and wish everyone luck with their future endeavours!
