A student from Cardiff University has beaten off stiff competition to secure one of the most highly-sought after placements for work experience in the UK.
James Morgan, currently studying a BSc City and Regional Planning degree, has landed a 12-month stint with Redrow South Wales and will work in the company's land department, WalesOnline.co.uk reports.
Just seven of the placements are being offered across the UK and Mr Morgan will be given the opportunity to gain practical experience and learn the ins and outs of acquiring new sites and negotiating the planning process.
Richard Beadsmore, training manager at Redrow, told the news provider that it is important to help struggling young people gain exposure to real working life.
"As unemployment among young people continues to rise, we see this as an invaluable tool to help them get a foothold on the career ladder," he added.
The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills recently unveiled new guidelines for companies providing work experience in the UK.
