Podium is a platform that connects current and former athletes with work opportunities.
Podium helps athletes transition into life after-sport, but also ex-athletes who may be seeking their next job opportunity.
They advocate on behalf of the athletes how beneficial their transferable skills from the sports world can be incorporated in a working environment. And it is a completely free service too!
Podium is working towards being a community for athletes to be connected with opportunities.
Currently, they are in discussions with corporate's who could be interested in engaging athletes for workshops, or corporate talks. It gives athletes an opportunity to earn an income, as well as further networking with companies in different industries.
Although they advertise specific roles on their website, they encourage athletes to sign up to their platform, even if these roles do not suit. They have found a lot of success in having a discussion with an athlete about what their interests are, approaching their networks with their profile, and making the connection.
