Chris Sigsworth Host: Chris works as the Schools & Colleges Manager at England Rugby, where he has worked for a total of 15 years. He began studying Physics and Maths for A-Levels but soon realised they were not for him and so being an airline pilot was no longer an option! After studying Coaching Science in Liverpool, he worked as a Rugby Development Officer in London, a National Manager for Sweden Rugby and now as the National Schools and Colleges Manager.

In this fantastic 2 part workshop with Chris Sigsworth (Schools and Colleges Manager at England Rugby) he will reveal the breadth of many of the different career paths available at England Rugby.

In this first part Chris will give you a real in-depth insight into not only his career but he will share via videos an overview into the organisation of England Rugby, highlighting the variety of roles available, and then he will invite some of his prestigious colleagues to share their own career paths and experiences.

In these videos, you’ll hear from England Rugby Staff who work in Rugby Development, Commercial Partnerships, Finance, Performance and our RFU Charity. They are going to be sharing with you their very top tips into how to build a successful career. 

These classes are so useful for students who are keen to work in the Sports Industry and get an amazing overview of some of the careers they could follow.
