"The FRA enables us to pipeline talented young people who have chosen a career in fashion retail; they have a real appreciation for the industry and are job ready, which makes our job easier! A high percentage of placement students secure roles with us and it’s great to watch their careers flourish."
Roger Howard, Menswear Merchandiser.
"FRA students have done a lot of the hard work already whilst studying, they have learnt the technical aspects to the role, they’ve got an insight into what the industry is about so the work placements are about bringing that altogether in a real life work environment."
