We are always very grateful to all who are interested in becoming FRU representatives. We would advise you to action this e-mail on receipt if you wish to be allocated a place on the Training Day. This is due to the fact that we allocate places on a first-come-first-served basis. We are always very heavily oversubscribed. Therefore in order to avoid disappointment, you will need to act promptly.

We look forward to receiving your application in due course and to working with you in the future.

Kind regards,

Sharon Sneddon
