For our Sport & Public Services Event, the plan is for employers to deliver a series of talks to groups of students, studying Sport and Public Services.
The focus of this event is as follows: The sports industry is evolving so fast and is so much more sophisticated; the advancement and integration of technology, fan-engagement, customer acquisition, is such a huge part of the industry. The profile of professional sport has increased through the UK hosting the Olympics and other large scale sporting events. Matched with an urgent need to promote healthier lifestyles and tackle obesity and other lifestyle diseases, sport creates a number of exciting career prospects.
Those working at the frontline of public services perform a vital role for society, often in the most challenging of situations. If you want to make a real difference with your career, then public service is a great sector to explore a range of possible roles, including those in the police service, county courts, prisons, fire service and armed forces. They are essential to our society and an integral part of our community, so those with the relevant skills and knowledge are always in demand. Whichever career you choose in public services, you’ll be supporting your community and city!
