Transfer-Encoding: chunked My production has been seen by a financial services recruitment agency, Taylor Green. They were most impressed with the quality of my production. Taylor Green wants me to produce some materials for them. I will produce a careers folder for them to use, explaining the importance of ethical practice in the financial services industry.
