Emma Haworth (Sports Marketing, 2009)

With its reputation for being one of the best institutions in the country to study Public Relations, Emma Haworth, a Sports Marketing and PR graduate, was not only attracted to Leeds Beckett by the course, but also the University's fantastic sports facilities.

Emma is currently a Sponsorship Account Executive at The Rugby Football League, the governing body for rugby league, a job she feels can be attributed to her time at Leeds Met, as she explains: “I did my two week work experience as part of my course at Leeds Met, but I then continued to work for the company whenever I had spare time which gave me invaluable experience, which was certainly a big part of the reason I got my current job. In fact, I was interviewed and offered this job [at the RFL] before I even graduated!”

Emma believes that in the current job market and especially in competitive sectors such as PR that it is critical for students to ensure their CVs are as complete as possible, she said: “When you leave, there will be so many students in the same position as you and potential employers will be looking for something that makes you stand out from the other candidates.”
