Our Senior Relationship Manager Clare Fitzboydon explains her role and how we make a difference in the sport and physical activity sector locally.
I am delighted to join the team BEDS&LUTON team as their Relationship Manager.
I have been privileged to work in sport since University, which seems quite a while ago! Since then I have worked for a variety of organisations ranging from Local Authorities, Governing Bodies as well as more recently working for a social enterprise, which supported and championed women working in the football industry.
A significant period of my career was spent working for the UK's largest sporting charity, the Football Foundation and it is there that I could develop skills such as managing large teams in the grant giving sector, driving internal performance and stakeholder management.
On a personal level I am passionate about hockey and I have played at a national league level, which was a great experience. I now play locally and I am Chair of Leighton Buzzard Hockey Club where I hope my own two boys will develop a passion for the game, as I did.
