Work experience placement from Hallam University

We've had the brilliant Ali Saricicek from Hallam University doing a 6-week placement with us. In his time here, he has been doing evidence based research and collecting evidence of Greentop in action. We're sorry to see him go but look forward to potentially working together in the future.
If you have an interest in undertaking work experience with Greentop, please get in touch and we would be really interested in hearing your thoughts.
