UCFB student Finn lands exciting video work placement role at The FA
Students at UCFB Wembley are often given the unrivalled opportunity to gain valuable work experience at The Football Association during their time studying at Wembley Stadium.
Finn Savage, a second year BA (Hons) Sports Business & Sports Broadcasting student, is the latest from UCFB to be offered a prestigious intern role at The FA. Finn will be part of the video team – a role sure to help his ambitions of being a media and broadcasting professional in the football and sport industry.
Like many roles UCFB students land, Finn’s work placement came about thanks to the UCFB Employability & Enrichment team, whose close ties to the industry enable students to undertake vital work experience.
After sharpening up his CV, drafting a cover letter and passing an interview with FA staff, Finn was offered the exciting role. Reacting, he said: “What I hope to achieve through this internship is first-hand experience in the industry which I want to work in once I leave UCFB. Also it is a brilliant thing to put on my CV.”
During his time at UCFB Finn has also undertaken work experience opportunities at Wembley FC and taken part in a media day at Tottenham Hotspur.
Finn added: “My hopes for the future are to work in a position very much like this one at The FA, whether that be at a football club, The FA itself or even a TV company like Sky Sports, making and producing video content for fans of the sport to watch and enjoy.”
