Following last weeks blog post, it's with great excitement that we can now introduce our second intern Charlie Joslin-Allen! Charlie has joined us to develop his versatility in the field of business, whilst simultaneously studying for his Degree.
Hello everyone! I'm Charlie, and I've been working as an intern with SPORTTAPE since November last year. I'm incredibly grateful for this exciting opportunity and I'm really looking forward to seeing what the future holds!
I am currently in my second year studying for a Sport and Exercise Science degree at Cardiff Metropolitan University, which I hope to graduate from in the summer of 2018. Being an international distance runner like Ieuan, Tom and Kieran, I hope to use the physiological and psychological knowledge gained from my degree to further develop my sporting resume.
When the opportunity came up to work with the team at SPORTTAPE, I can honestly say I was thrilled. To be a part of such a hard working and committed team is an honour, and I hope to learn as much about the inner workings of the business as I possibly can. Developing key skills in a professional business environment has since become my focus and I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of my time here.
Thanks for reading, and I wish you all the best for 2017.
A new year comes with the addition of two fantastic new members to the SPORTTAPE team!
We begin by introducing intern Kieran Wood. Kieran has joined to build a knowledge of what makes a business tick, and to develop a wide array of skills to run alongside his degree.
Hello! My name is Kieran, and I am currently undergoing a work placement here at SPORTTAPE. I couldn't be more excited for the next few months, and here is a little bit about myself.
Like Tom and Ieuan, I am an International Middle Distance runner, having represented England and Great Britain, winning 3 national junior titles along the way.
I am currently studying Sport and Exercise Science (SES) at Cardiff Metropolitan University, half way through my second year. Being on an SES degree program, I am concerned primarily with optimising performance and health through sport. My personal interests lie primarily in ergogenic aids, and in sport psychology.
SPORTTAPE and Squid Compression, are both products I have used in my own career to help with recovery and injuries, and with the head office being on my doorstep, this was far too good an opportunity to pass up. I am very keen to learn about the day to day running of a business dealing in sport, and to also develop my knowledge of my subject area, as I look towards graduation next year.
I wish you the absolute best in 2017, and look forward to working alongside you all.
We are incredibly excited to announce that we have extended our partnership with Team Raleigh GAC through the 2017 season. Home to World and European Champions as well as the best upcoming British talent, Team Raleigh GAC certainly falls under the 'Best of British' category. SPORTTAPE will become the official tape supplier to Team Raleigh GAC for the 2017 season, which will see Team Raleigh riders kept in one piece by SPORTTAPE's range of Traditional and Kinesiology tapes whilst they compete across the world.
