Who we Are
Since Careers in Sport launched in 2008, we have built the foundations of a platform that supports young people understand the diverse professions available in the sector and the skills/qualifications required to help them achieve their career ambitions.
A website that started as 20 career profiles promoting professions in sports business, coaching, media and science has grown rapidly to become 100+ profiles, 25 live events, a jobs board, an education training programme for 1000’s of students each year, with a social media following of nearly 100,000 people.
We have promoted the job and training opportunities of over 800 organisations in the industry via our website and Careers in Sport LIVE events. Whilst delivering careers education presentations and workshops to 1000s of students interested in a career in the industry.
Our ‘Jump-Start’ programme supports young people gain employment in the sport and fitness industry by enabling them to access advice, work experience and training opportunities in the sports industry.
Young people aged between 16 to 24 are the worst hit by the pandemic in terms of the jobs market – and they will only continue to struggle as the furlough scheme draws to a close, redundancies increase, and the competition for jobs grows larger.
If you or your organisation work in sports business, coaching, media, science or health and fitness and would like to support the programme and provide young people with a jump start in their career please contact us.
As well as supporting the programme your organisation will receive wide-spread promotion on our Careers in Sport website and social media channels.
