English and Music graduate takes job as a human
In a rather strange turn of events
an English and Music graduate has taken up a role as a human
scarecrow. The job sees him spend 8 hours a day tasked with
keeping partridges away from the field of oil seed rape, for this

He is only in the role for the moment as he’s
saving up to travel to New Zealand, but is aware of the harsh
environment meeting many graduates as some of his friends "have
been unfortunate” in their search for graduate jobs but rather refreshingly he
says “you never know what hand life will deal… you've got to take
every opportunity you find".
