At Bankstown Sports, we believe in providing a fun, friendly and professional environment for school, college and TAFE students to sample the hospitality industry, to help them make an informed decision about their future.
This month, we welcomed Renae Edmunds to our administration offices for a week of work placement, where she gained practical experience in a busy hospitality environment. Renae is no stranger to the club; she recently received $500 in funding to assist with a trip to Florida to represent Australia in the Baton Twirling World Championships.
Renae spent time with the Human Resources, Marking, Communications and Sport and Community teams, carrying out a variety of tasks. Upon reflection, she says she had an enriching experience.
“Bankstown Sports Club was the destination I chose for my work placement and I was fortunate that they were willing to accommodate me. I am interested in Journalism and Marketing, however, I also enjoy participating in a range of sports and felt Bankstown Sports could provide me with a broad variety of experience. During my week at Bankstown Sports, I got the opportunity to work in the Communications and Sport and Community Departments."
“All of the teams were welcoming towards me and I learnt many things, including writing and editing blogs, using Excel, social media posting and how to interpret data. It was an enjoyable week and it was intriguing to observe all the work that is put in behind the scenes to ensure the club is running smoothly. It was an eye-opening experience!"
“I have learnt how the range of teams function and I have come to recognise the major role that Bankstown Sports plays in the support of the local Bankstown community."
“My time at Bankstown Sports has influenced my thoughts on which career path I would like to take. I have learnt much about myself and what I would potentially like to do in my future. I am grateful I was given the opportunity to complete my work placement at Bankstown Sports”.
