Ulster University gives young people sporting chance of career success

Pictured at the launch event are Karen Kearney from leading sports social enterprise, GLL; sports and exercise sciences student, Leah Paul and Ulster University's Pro Vice-Chancellor for Education, Professor Paul Bartholomew.

Ulster University has launched a new online portal offering advice and guidance to young people aspiring for careers in the thriving sports industry, including everything from psychology, coaching and teaching to sports law, journalism and nutrition.

The University’s ‘Careers In’ portal provides tailored support for users depending on what stage they are at on their career journey, from school children and university students through to those who have graduated. Users can also explore a series of career journeys of successful sports graduates who offer insight into the steps they took to land their dream jobs.

The portal was launched at an Ulster University employability exhibition where students got the opportunity to find out more about the wide range of careers available in the sports sector. Employers in attendance included Action Cancer, Performa Sports, Belfast City Council, PwC and many more.
