My nature would be to fully immerse myself in any role I apply myself to - which simply isn't possible with my training, travelling and playing commitments on an International Circuit.
Finding this website which incorporates an ability to work remotely or anywhere in the Leeds area (+30 miles) is ideal for me to make sure I stay active away from sport, whilst also endeavouring to learn skills that will benefit me when I leave the 'bubble' of the sporting industry.
I am educated to degree level in Leadership and Management, very energetic and often imaginative - as well as every pre-requisite of being an elite athlete; committed, determined and highly competitive.
I am interested in being a Business Development Specialist and any work to do with Branding - helping with all things that develop revenue streams for you.
I believe I am competent at letter writing, Web site copy writing, Promotional article writing, Press release writing and development, and many more individual items that would benefit most businesses.
Area Covered: Leeds/West Yorkshire
Job Title: Rugby Professional
Description: Whilst there is no formal role as a sportsman, the attributes learnt in many facets of working in a community based profession lead to a development in a range of areas that have great benefit in a working environment.
I spent many years working with the commercial and community directors within the clubs, meaning I learnt some great personal skills that will prove to be beneficial in later life. We as the players had to sell the club as a product which meant for great Public Relations training as well as proficiency at speaking to the media and publicly at schools, business and forums.
