What's this about?
The sports sector is vast as it includes everything from being a professional sports person, through to the teams of people who work with them such as; sports scientists, psychologists, personal trainers and physiotherapists who are focused on overcoming injuries or improving performance.
Many people work in sports coaching, either within a club or within a PE department.
If you like the idea of working with young people and promoting a particular sport across the community you may enjoy a sports development role.
There are also massive opportunities to work in the health and fitness sector in gyms and leisure centres and also in outdoor activities. If you are interested in sport you could also work in a business role for a sports club or work in the media as a sports journalist.
