Working with The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation was an amazing experience. The role opened up so many opportunities for me once I had graduated and was one the main reasons I was able to secure a job working in elite sport so soon after finishing University. My work programme was varied which enabled me to work across a variety of projects and develop a lot of professional skills. Great fun from start to finish and a programme I would recommend to anyone looking to get the most out of their time at University and get a head start in their career.
