Viola Lough


What do you enjoy most about your role?

The variety of the role - we get to work on a range of projects, and within those projects gain experience in different roles and responsibilities. A single day can involve interviewing the CEO of a major football club, analysing a complex data set and running an internal team problem solving session.

What was the greatest project experience you had so far?

During my internship, I worked on a collaborative cross-sport project involving five UK National Governing Bodies. By the sixth week of my internship I had travelled to Lord’s, Wembley and Twickenham and presented our findings to leading representatives from these organisations.

What makes working in the sports sector exciting for you?

Being often the only girl in my school football and cricket teams kickstarted my passion for women’s sport. Now I have the opportunity to be involved in and influence the growth women’s sport is experiencing. It’s rewarding to be part of this exciting moment.
