Sports Sector Events to Support Students and Professionals with their Career
Behind every sport and sporting event is an entire support industry comprising professions as diverse as coaches, journalists, photographers, physiotherapists, match officials, nutritionists, therapists, marketers and administrators.
Careers in Sport LIVE events provide young people with the opportunity to see first-hand the diverse roles and responsibilities working within a professional sports club and their foundation.
The events are hosted at iconic sports venues and the club infrastructure highlighted as a case study to promote the professions working in Sports Business, Sports Coaching, Sports Media and Sports Science.
