Career enhancing opportunities
Discover how you could be our next intern and deliver sessions to our sports clubs
We get how it is when you go into the real world. You can't get a job without experience, and you can't get experience without a job. We're always looking at ways to get more students involved in sport. The opportunities are endless and often you can control your destiny. We have a range of opportunities across sport as a whole, often leading to the destination of choice. If you're passionate and have the skills, we can even develop an opportunity together. With the focus on employability and transferable skills, you'll often get out more than you'll put in.
Strength and conditioning
Our strength and conditioning interns, juniors and coaches deliver sessions to our sports scholars and our sports clubs while learning practical skills. Strength and conditioning plays an integral part to the success of an athlete or team, it's more than just fitness. Our coaches plan, deliver and review the physical and physiological preparation of athletes aligned to specific sports performance outcomes. There are a number of roles and opportunities across our sport scholars program and our 36 sports clubs, of which many have multiple teams.
Interns and placements
Our internships and placements are an ideal solution to help with your experience and employability. Each year we have students from the School of Sport, Health and Exercise Science on academic placements with us, offering project support on a number of key sports projects. Projects can include; Sports Strategy planning, Varsity, Sports Awards, marketing and communications, sports team performance analysis, sport psychology and community schools outreach programmes. Previous interns have delivered a Dance off and Cheer off event. 19 schools were involved, with 295 students taking part, working with 43 student coaches.
