Rajeeb had this to say about his acceptance onto the scheme:
“In this turbulent time, with youth unemployment at an all-time high, the work we in do the graduate recruitment area has never been more important. Marketing is an absolutely vital part of getting opportunities to young people across the UK, and working with the kind of experts the Marketing Academy will provide in this is an incredible prospect”
