More than footy: Titans Careers & Business Expo

The Gold Coast Titans recently held a Careers & Business Expo last week, with athletes in attendance across all of the clubs' high performance programs.

The aim of the event was to provide career pathway opportunities for Titans athletes beyond their playing careers and with over 20 businesses in attendance the range of career options on offer was vast.

From police, to barber apprenticeships and mining, the clubs wider partner network came together in a informative afternoon of learning and collaboration.

A combination of over 65 NRL, NRLW, Future Titans, Netball & Leagueability players and their families were in attendance with valuable connections and information being exchanged.

The club has helped open the door to opportunities for players to work, study or volunteer with sponsors and supporters of the club, while setting themselves up away from their sporting pursuits, the likes of which haven't been seen before.
