Employability Events

Careers in Sport work with a number of leading universities in England and Wales.

We created and ran an event for the University of Gloucestershire. We sourced keynote presenters to deliver to each sport and leisure degree programme the university deliver and invited 35 local and national organisations to exhibit.

Careers in Sport have also run an employability event for the University of Exeter students studying Sport and Exercise Science. We have sourced keynote presenters, local and national organisations to exhibit and will run a networking event for employees, trainers, academics and professionals working within the industry to network and engage with their students.

“The LIVE event was excellent and we had fantastic support from the Careers in Sportteam . They provided all the equipment and there was a great deal of variety in terms of the exhibitors they brought along. It was practical and fun for the delegates.  They made organising the event easy.

Our event was aimed at giving young people a chance to explore our courses as well as potential careers in sport, by combining course talks and lectures with the exhibition the delegates really did have a fantastic day.”

Vicky Johnson, Student Recruitment and Outreach Co-ordinator, University of Brighton

“The Careers in Sport event held at Plymouth Marjon University was a great opportunity to showcase the fantastic Sport and Health Sciences degrees available at Marjon. It was fantastic for Marjon students and young people from local schools and colleges to consider the career paths available and speak with organisation who are working and recruiting in the sector.”

Philippa Elford, Employability Co-ordinator, Sport & Health Sciences, Plymouth Marjon University

“Careers in Sport provided a bespoke careers event for the sport and health sciences students at the University of Exeter. The event was a great success with over 300 undergraduate and postgraduate students in attendance. The range of speakers and exhibitors provided the students with a wealth of advice and support, and the students came away with work experience placement opportunities and a vibrant network of professionals to liaise with in the future.”

Dr Martin I. Jones, Senior Lecturer in Sport and Exercise Psychology, University of Exeter 

"It was a pleasure to work with Harvey Grout and his Careers in Sport team on planning and delivering two LIVE events at the University of Lincoln. We were able to combine Harvey's national partners and contacts with our own local and national ones to produce a customised programme that offered broad sector relevance for our students and local schoolchildren but also enabled us to showcase and support sporting organisations within the county. We were involved in all stages of the planning, allowing us to take full advantage of our Human Performance Centre as well as central exhibition spaces. The Careers in Sport team were flexible, thorough and professional throughout, and we were delighted with both events and the feedback we received on them from students and exhibitors."

Dr Sandy Willmott, Senior Lecturer in Sports Science, School of Sport and Exercise Science, University of Lincoln
