Havas Sports & Entertainment Welcomes Elite Athletes

Sport and entertainment agency Havas Sports & Entertainment (HS&E) will welcome a group of elite athletes to their team as part of a scheme with the English Institute of Sport (EIS).
The EIS Athlete Career Development Programme (ACDP) offers athletes the chance to gain valuable work experience within a corporate environment to assist their eventual career choices.  Seventeen elite athletes from the worlds of athletics, hockey, rowing, fencing, wheelchair rugby, judo, fencing and women’s rugby applied for the opportunity to work with HS&E. Interviews have taken place and the successful candidates will be selected in December 2010, to start work with them in the New Year.
Having been introduced to HS&E by the British Olympic Association (BOA), EIS Performance Lifestyle Advisor, Emma Mitchell says the partnership has proved a success: “We wanted to develop an opportunity which could be valuable in terms of career development and experience, but also tailored to the athletes’ training and competition demands. We took these into account alongside their individual skill sets in order to match them with the most appropriate companies in the scheme. We’re delighted with the interest and active support of HS&E and hope that the opportunities offered will help support the career development needs of some of Great Britain’s best Olympic and Paralympic athletes.”
HS&E CEO Keith Impey commented: “The successful candidates will work on a range of projects within our specialist teams. It will offer them the opportunity to gain tangible experience within a corporate working environment, with the flexibility to do so alongside their training and competition schedules.”
The English Institute of Sport (EIS) is a publicly funded, non-profit organisation, who deliver sport science and sport medical support service to approximately 1700 elite athletes from almost 50 different sports.
