Alan Duncan

  • Name: Alan Duncan
  • Course: Bachelor of Business Studies (BBS)
  • Placement: PR Assistant Company: Eulogy! PR agency
  • Location: London, UK

"My INTRA year has been, without question, one of the most interesting and enjoyable years of my life! The change that I have seen in myself has been outstanding. The company I worked with, Eulogy! is one of the top Public Relations (PR) agencies in the UK, representing such clients as Virgin, Becks beer, and Royal Mail. My position as PR assistant varied greatly, from setting up the meeting rooms, to writing press releases and communicating with journalists. Occasionally I had to attend events and entertain journalists.

If, like me, you relish a challenge, then you will love this job as no two days are the same. There are few things as satisfying as seeing a feature or press release you have worked hard on being published in a newspaper or magazine. If you are interested in a career in PR, then this placement is invaluable. The fact that my placement was in London was an added benefit as I got to experience all that the city has to offer. Irish accents work wonders over here!”
