Meet the team at England Rugby (part 7 - Ross Cowell)
"As a big rugby fan and being brought up around Twickenham, I feel privileged working within the RFU at one of the most iconic stadiums in the UK. The opportunities here are in abundance and can only enhance your career pathway and employability."
Since the age of sixteen, I have worked in various departments in the Rugby Football Union, from helping the kit man distribute kit to the England senior squad to working with the media team creating pages on the official England Rugby website. After graduating from St Mary University with a degree in Sports Science in the summer of 2015, I took on a temporary role in the Business Development department, assisting the Debenture sales manager with a large sale of debentures. After a successful three months, I became a full time member of the Business Development team alongside three other Debenture sales executives who have various backgrounds both in sport and other sales & marketing roles.
A large part of the revenue that we generate is reinvested back into the `good of the game` in areas such as grassroots rugby, stadium development and promoting participation in all areas of rugby around the country. As a big rugby fan and being brought up around Twickenham, I feel privileged working within the RFU at one of the most iconic stadiums in the UK. The opportunities here are in abundance and can only enhance your career pathway and employability. There is definitely an English Rugby family that has been created over many years of both joy and hurt. It is then our job to ensure this family remains and continues for many years to come.
