Careers in Sport held a fantastic event at the University of Brighton on Thursday 22nd September for young people interested in sports careers. If you didn't make it here are some top tips for working in sports:
1. Connect with anyone and everyone in the field of your interest. Follow associations and individuals on twitter and sign up to newsletters. The more information you have the more opportunities will be available for you grasp.
2. Sports is a big field but careers are generally in four main areas: coaching and teaching, science, health and business (including marketing and journalism/broadcasting). Consider what you are most interested in as this will have an impact on what you study and where you focus your efforts.
3. Have a look at www.careers-in-sport.co.uk/ for inspiration and information about the industry, the careers and the jobs available.

next apprenticeship matching event on thursday 2nd july! 3pm to 4.30pm at Otherplace at the Basement, 24 Kensington Street, Brighton
On Thursday 2nd July 2015 Brighton & Hove City Council are bringing together training providers, employers and information advice and guidance professionals at a Apprenticeship Matching Event. It’s a great opportunity for young people (aged 16-24) to meet training providers offering live Apprenticeship vacancies in Brighton & Hove.
It takes place:
Apprenticeship Matching Event: Thursday July 2nd 2015.
3pm to 4.30pm at Otherplace at the Basement, 24 Kensington Street, Brighton, BN1 4AJ - view a map of the venue
Young people can register for a place at the next event online. They will then receive an email with the details of the venue with an allocated time slot. They need to bring several up to date copies of their CV, and it is important to dress appropriately to meet with potential employers.
This information is also available on the Council’s website ; http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/content/jobs/apprenticeships/apprenticeship-matching
These matching events are held at town centre venues on a regular basis. Each event can host up to 100 young people looking for an Apprenticeship and they will be invited to attend at an allocated time.
The events offer young people the chance to find out about and apply for the vacancies available with selected training providers and employers. We are not able to bring all of the live vacancies in the city to each event so young people you may not be able to find an exact match at that event. However, they be able to register with the different training providers to be notified when new vacancies come up and you they may find what they are looking for at the following event.
An important part of these events is information, advice and guidance. There will be advisors on hand to meet young people and find out about their current situation and what they are looking for. They will let young people know what kinds of vacancies are available so they can speak to the right training providers and employers.
Brighton & Hove City Council have run a number of these events previously, and they've always had really good feedback both from young people and providers.
‘ These events enable us to engage with young people who are genuinely interested in our live vacancies. This gives us the opportunity to discuss vacancies in greater detail offering invaluable face to face information, advice and guidance. Without these events I don’t believe we would have found some of our fantastic apprenticeships’ Training Provider.
Registration is online but we will welcome anyone who turns up at any point during the event.
