    AMA #3: Jobs, Recruitment and Training in Sports Sustainability

    AMA #3: Jobs, Recruitment and Training in Sports Sustainability

    Today we're talking about what recruitment, training and job roles look like in the sports sector in two different ways. Firstly for leadership; is recruiting environmental experts better than training up current staff? Is a head of sustainability critical? Secondly, what advice to give young people looking to carve out a career in this space?
    Thanks to Jamie and Robin for their questions, and experts Matt Campelli and Marisa Schlenker for their industry knowledge and perspectives.
