Employment Sectors

Sports, Leisure and related areas

This sector covers a huge range of jobs from working in graduate level roles closely connected to sports and exercise science, to sports promotion, to running a leisure centre or organising events. There are only a few graduate training schemes in this area. Your voluntary work, vacation and term time jobs, and work experience can be very important in breaking into this sector. Building up contacts through networking is often a more effective way of securing that first opportunity than the more formal application routes.
