After attending a St Luke’s Careers Day and talking to guest speaker Jon Pitts, I was offered a job at Motive8 Health and Fitness. Working in the schools department, I carried out research with staff at St Luke’s on physical activity levels during PE lessons in primary schools. Then I progressed to department manager, with the aim to improve the quality of sport and health provision offered in schools. After a year at Motive8, I moved to Wales and became coordinator of the ‘5 for life’ project at Newport Local Health Board. Under the Going for Gold scheme, the project targets children and families through school, community learning and festivals to promote healthy living. This job offers a range of experiences from working on partnership with public health agencies, organising community events as well as delivering healthy workshops to children in schools.
