What makes UK Athletics a great place to work?

Category: testimonial

Testimonial on red VERCIDA background

Take a look at what these employees say about working at UK Athletics....

“Firstly the people are what makes the organisation, I work in the Major Events department and interface mainly with logistics, officials coordinators and        marketing/communications (media).

It is a fast paced environment going from event to event but with the help and support of the team, we thrive together and we do what we do best and stage world class events for the public and athletes/athlete support alike. It has opened up doors for me which I could never have imagined, I have worked on IAAF World Championships London 2017, IPC World Para Championships, and currently working on a home World Indoor Champs here in Birmingham.

I have also met world and Olympic champion/ world record holders and as a fan of the sport is incredible in itself, what other job in the world can people say that! These are just a few small examples of why I enjoy working for UKA, every day is different and every event is also, I have an incredible supportive and motivational manager that further pushes and inspires me.”

-Yannick Phippen, Major Events Coordinator

“I love working at UK Athletics as every day is different, no two days are the same. 

There are many opportunities to get involved in all aspects of work if you have the inclination to do so, if not that doesn’t matter either.  It’s a family and everyone cares about everyone else, and will help in order to get a job done.  

It’s a flexible, friendly and relaxed environment… it’s definitely somewhere I would recommend people to work.”

-Sarah Coffey, Executive Assistant
