Sport and Leisure
The sport and leisure industries offer a wide variety of different career pathways. They offer jobs in sports and recreation, health and fitness, playwork and the caravan industry.
Although many jobs in the sector are very practical by nature, essential skills are just as important. Most jobs are likely to be customer facing, therefore strong communication skills are vital if you want to be successful in the industry.
The number of people employed in the sport and leisure industries in Suffolk is fairly small compared with other areas of the country, but it is expected there will be more jobs created locally.
The 2012 Olympic Games will also benefit the area and help promote participation in sport.
