Work Experience

Rose is often looking for enthusiastic people to assist her with a variety of tasks from researching her Daily Telegraph column through to filing cuttings and food preparation.


Here's what some previous students have said about working with Rose:

"I worked with Rose for one month doing research for her Good Food Producers Guide Book. This work experience gave me an insight into the world of food and journalism. After engaging with Rose whose knowledge is inspiring I have since found myself fascinated by food. It was a great job to be given and as well as Rose being a pleasure to work for the job also included a trip to Harrods for lunch!"
Phoebe Robinson

"I did a week of work experience with the Princes over the summer. I am convinced that no other 'placement' can have been as exciting, varied and interesting as my week was. On the very first day, I was taken to a work drinks party - we got there by bike, with me perching on the back of Dominic's. The rest of the week was just as fun and included testing ice-cream-makers for a Telegraph review (by making ice-cream and pondering the results), as well as assisting Rose with the Good Produce Guide. I'm studying languages at Cambridge University (Magdalene) though my main interest is in journalism. The time I spent at the Princes was extremely helpful in showing what it is like to write for a living. I could not recommend it enough."
Leaf Arbuthnot

"Two weeks of work experience consisted of researching Rose's Telegraph column, potential magazine features and even potential book ideas, as well as having an article published on the 442 website, which looks fantastic on my CV. Perhaps the most magical aspect of work experience with the Princes is simply being in the home, sitting in the kitchen being fed by Rose whilst discussing the ins and outs of freelance journalism and the many tales that come with it. I was extremely well looked after and often felt like I was staying at friends for a couple of weeks, rather than being a tea boy at the office."

April 2020 – Boiled Crayfish with Watercress and Egg Sauce

This reminds me of a crayfish feast: a lunch in Wiltshire, yards from the River Kennet. David Hammerson, owner of the Everleigh Farm Shop, cooked them for us. We ate them the most practical way, with mayonnaise. I have simply added that other freshwater ingredient, watercress, to this recipe.
