SkillsActive launches brand new careers site

SkillsActive launches its brand new careers website at the national Careers in Sport & Leisure event in Telford.

Working in partnership with media education company U-Explore, SkillsActive now offers a brand new interactive careers website for anyone wanting to work in the sport and active leisure sector.

The SkillsActive Group CEO Stephen Studd said: “I am delighted to be working in partnership with U-Explore and to launch the brand new sport and active leisure platform.

“The sport and active leisure sector is a fantastic place to start and build a career, and the brand new website gives a real insight into what it’s like to work in the sector and the job roles available.

“We will be working with U-Explore to ensure this new site becomes the number one source of information for all those people who want to work within the sector.”

The new partnership will enable SkillsActive and U-Explore to provide leading careers information and advice across the sport and active leisure sector.

Andy Pickles, CEO of U-Explore, continued: “Our objective from the beginning was to work with sector partners to give young people the most exciting and relevant experience of each and every industry sector.

“I am very proud that our first such partnership is with SkillsActive who have worked with us to develop the content and links to their sector partners in sport, active leisure, caravanning and playwork as well as adopting the U-Explore platform to deliver a careers solution for their sector. As a Sector Skills Council they are the most credible partner for us to work with and we will now proactively look to build on this with further sector skills partnerships.”
