South West Communications Group has teamed up with The Prince’s Trust and Exeter Chiefs to give young rugby fans the chance to kick-start their careers.

South West Communications Group has teamed up with The Prince’s Trust and Exeter Chiefs to give young rugby fans the chance to kick-start their careers.

Last week’s 5-day Get Started with Rugby course at Exeter Chiefs’ home Sandy Park was the first of 3 courses that will be funded by South West Communications Group this year.

Get Started with Rugby will help 16 to 25-year-olds gain the skills and confidence they need to get a job. Participants will have the chance to gain the RFU rugby ready coaching certificate as well as qualifications in sports first aid and safeguarding and protecting children.
 
The course also teaches CV and interview techniques and young people will receive three months mentoring support after the course to help them get a job. More than 3 in 4 young people helped by The Prince’s Trust move into work or training.

Harry Langley, South West Communications Group’s managing director, said: “Rugby is an inspirational game, both on and off the field, and we hope this innovative programme will inspire confidence in young people from our region to find work during these difficult, economics times.”

Rick Libbey, regional director for The Prince’s Trust in the South West said: “South West Communications Group has yet again proved its commitment to supporting disadvantaged young people in the South West by funding this new course at Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club. With their support, Get Started with Rugby will offer an exciting and valuable opportunity to local young people who want to get their lives on track.”

South West Communications Group is Exeter Chiefs’ main, first team and community sponsor and is also a patron of The Prince’s Trust having already raised more than £45,000 to help disadvantaged young people in the region.

Former newspaper journalist, Caroline joined the company in 2008 with no previous knowledge of the industry.

She set about stripping back all the jargon to produce plain English marketing collateral to support the sales teams. Now slightly more well-versed in the dark arts of voice, connectivity and data services, Caroline writes blogs, case studies, data sheets and social media updates to engage with potential and existing customers.

This industry is far cry from her previous working life when she worked as communications manager for Exeter Chiefs and Northampton Saints.
