Ward presented at the Sydney Roosters CareerWise sessions for the Under 16s and Under 18s teams on Monday afternoon.
The CareerWise sessions are designed to encourage young players to build a career outside of rugby league, to set them up for their post-football life.
To be eligible to play, the young athletes must be engaged in fulltime education, a traineeship or work.
Whilst supporting their number one goal of being selected to play in the NRL, The Roosters work hard to make sure that junior players have options for their post football life.
Ward showcased the various job types and the projects we work on. As a lot of the Under 16s and Under 18s players are still at school, there was a big focus on discussing the different pathways into the civil construction industry.
Ward’s flexible work practices makes working with us an attractive option for people with competing priorities, like playing representative football!
We loved the chance to talk about what we do, and hopefully we will be able to welcome some new recruits in the coming months.
Thanks to The Roosters for having us and to Ward HR Manager Leigh-Anne Pye, Chandos Traffic Manager Jennifer O’Brien and Community & Stakeholder Manager Danielle Amos for flying the Ward flag.
