Which Wolves Value best suits you and your role?

Humility – It’s important to show the ability to listen to other people’s concerns and put the wellbeing of players at the forefront of people’s thinking.

Weekly tasks overview

My weekly tasks involve:
Primarily being the point of contact for any concerns raised from a player, parent or staff member linked to the academy.
I also work as part of the Player Care team, primarily working with the Foundation Phase, Pre-Academy and Girls and Women’s teams.

What do you most enjoy about working for the academy?

It’s a great atmosphere around Compton and I have enjoyed getting to know the players and parents in the early days that I have been working at Wolves.

Future career and academic aspirations

Due to me recently starting this role, my main aspiration is to embed myself into the Academy and become part of the furniture.
