There's a saying that goes: "Sometimes what you're looking for comes when you're not looking at all", and this couldn’t ring more true to Josh Davis.
Working and settled as an Account Manager for a Birmingham based marketing agency, a call out of the blue from sportingjobs.co.uk made him reassess his career opportunities.
"I remember receiving a call from Cherie at sportingjobs.co.uk saying she’d like to speak to me about a role at football club she was recruiting for." Josh said. "As the conversation developed it turned out Birmingham City was the club which was amazing as they were my boyhood favourite side!"
With a skill set that was easily transferable to the sporting arena, after a series of interviews Josh was finally offered his ‘dream role’ in May and hasn’t looked back since.
"In my relatively short time working in football I've seen a totally different side to the sport to what I knew as a fan. I'm loving it."
Josh thanked sportingjobs.co.uk for their support in helping with his new role.
"I would highly recommend them to any job seeker looking to secure employment within the sporting industry."
"The professional yet personal approach was something that I really appreciated, building a friendship alongside a professional relationship. I knew that I was in safe hands with a company that would have no qualms in going that extra mile to help me."
"The ongoing support and guidance from both Cherie and Adrian throughout the recruitment process was unrivalled, ensuring that I was given the best opportunity of securing my dream Job at Birmingham City Football Club."
