Wakefield Trinity was delighted to welcome over 15 companies to our Open Careers Day to offer players at all levels of the club the opportunity to learn about how they can further their careers away from the game.
With sport being a short career, many players look for their routes away from the game early on, opting to learn something new whilst still being associated with Rugby League, looking at ways they can continue on the correct path.
Through this initiative set up by Trinity Player Wellbeing Manager, Stu Dickens, players were offered the chance to discuss courses with educational organisations about where they would like to go in the future.
Over the course of the day, we welcomed a number of visitors including the Police, Fire Service, Wakefield College, Morgan Sindall and members from RL Cares.
Speaking on the day overall, Stu said, “We were delighted with the overwhelming response we got from both companies and players alike.
“To have over 70 players from the Men’s, Academy, Scholarship, Reserves and Ladies’ sides was great to see & I hope that they all found the day useful.”
Everyone at Wakefield Trinity would like to thank all our guests and partners for giving up their time to support our players.
