I am currently seeking opportunities within the sports sector that will allow me to demonstrate my expertise and knowledge, while expanding my portfolio and skill set. I have a range of experience working within the commercial department of football clubs and have been employed at Macclesfield Town F.C, Port Vale F.C. and Brazos Valley Cavalry. In addition, I have also recently graduated from the University Campus of Football Business where I secured a Football Business & Marketing Degree. Each task I am presented with receives 100% effort, as I am a hardworking and motivated individual: making me a reliable employee. I also have strong communication and organisational skills, coupled with my confident and professional character.

COMMERCIAL MANAGER - MACCLESFIELD F.C.
During my time at Macclesfield Town F.C. I was in charge of the whole commercial department, this meant that I was responsible for finding and looking after partnerships, bringing in a revenue for the club, was responsible for running hospitality and so forth. While my time at Macclesfield Town was only brief, due to the club going into liquidation, I managed to secure a front of shirt, back of shirt, back of shorts and training kit sponsor within my first month – all of which were new partners to the club. I also created global partnerships, for example with Optival Ltd who are based in Tel Aviv. I learnt a lot during my time at Macclesfield Town and I am positive I will be able to replicate my hard work at another club.

MAY 2019 - JULY 2019
In 2019 I completed an internship programme for the Brazos Valley Cavalry - a USL League Two 'soccer' team in Bryan, Texas. During my time at the Cavalry I was responsible for a wide range of tasks, such as social media, marketing and sales, as well as getting to be involved in the day to day running of the club. As the Cavalry are affiliates of Houston Dynamo, in the MLS, I often had the opportunity to work with their Under 23's team; for example going down to the Dynamo's training ground to create content with the players. It was a great experience, that allowed me to work in a variety of roles in the industry, and understand football in America.
HEAD OF SOCIAL MEDIA
My marketing class at UCFB was set the task of creating a football photography exhibition, and I took charge of the Instagram account. My role included building up the accounts followers, creating and posting content, reaching out to relevant people in the industry and so forth. The Instagram account was successful, encouraged ticket sales and people from across the nation began to use our hashtag. I was therefore graded a First for the module by my lectures at the University.

Since 2015, I have worked a variety of different jobs within the hospitality industry.

A few of the companies I have worked for include Adidas, Fearless Clothing and ITV. Working from a young age, on top of school, instilled in me a strong work ethic.
