I’ve been with Sussex County Cricket Club for a mere two weeks, starting just after I finished my second year at university. I am still currently a student studying a BA in Arts and Culture at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.

As part of my degree the first half of my third year is a ‘free semester’ where I have the choice of completing an internship, studying abroad at another university or doing a minor at Maastricht University.

From the outset, I was very keen on doing an internship; I think it’s really important to gain work experience for finding a job after university, so I went about the long process of trying to find myself a suitable internship.

I have always had a great passion for sports, especially cricket, and over the last few years that I decided I wanted to turn my love of sports into an actual career, hopefully working in the sports media industry. I was extremely lucky to be chosen for this internship as this is precisely the job I would love to do after finishing university.

The first few days here were somewhat of a whirlwind as I tried to undertake the task of understanding everything that goes on behind the scenes at Sussex, and the difficult task of trying to learn everyone’s names! But I now feel very settled in and I’m getting used to day-to-day life working here. So far my responsibilities have been fairly wide-ranging, but mainly focused on the online side of things in the marketing department, such as updating the website and sending out newsletters to all our subscribers.

I am really happy working here and feel part of a great team. I am hoping over the following eight months that I will be at Sussex that I will continue to learn about all aspects of marketing an established sports club. I am also looking forward to working on some of the bigger projects at the club and hopefully contributing some ideas of my own.
