Industry talk for sports students

Friday 25 April 2014

On Tuesday 22 April, sports students were treated to a guest talk from England 2015 recruitment manager, Jon Massie. Mr Massie, who is responsible for the overall recruitment of all paid staff for England Rugby 2015, gave a fascinating insight in to the building of sporting organisations, drawing on examples from his current role in helping to deliver the Rugby World Cup 2015, as well as from his key involvement in the London 2012 Olympics.

BTEC sport student, Aitor Blazquez, was one of the students to attend the talk.

"I really enjoyed Mr Massie's visit and was fascinated to learn about what goes on behind the scenes for big events like the Olympics and the Rugby World Cup," he said. "I was particularly amazed by how much though and planning is needed to take care of every individual participating and watching the events, from the moment they arrive in England until the moment they leave. It's actually made me want to get involved in event management in the future as it's really interesting."
