Life After Professional Sports is an online careers resource platform that can offer advice, networking and job opportunities for future, current and former elite athletes.

It’s a comprehensive resource that includes:

  • Career Advice – guides on how to approach changing careers, writing CVs, optimising your LinkedIn
  • Job Guide – details of the various jobs open to you, including interviews with former athletes now working in that role
  • Courses – courses elected for their suitability for athletes. These are linked to the Job Roles so if there’s a role that interests you, there’s probably an appropriate course too!
  • Job Board – Here employers post roles that they want to fill with professional athletes
  • Events – exclusive events and workshops for LAPS Members
