We have filmed another video interview, this time with former footballer and current operations manager Paul Gibbs. During his sporting career, Paul played for a number of clubs, including Colchester United and Brentford, with both of whom he reached Football League Trophy finals at Wembley, and also for Diss Town, with whom he lifted the FA Vase. Paul also achieved some impressive personal accolades during his footballing career, and was named in the Professional Footballer’s Association Team of the Year for the 1998-1999 season, which he spent with Devonshire side Plymouth Argyle.
Paul now works in the recruitment industry as an operations manager, and the interview that we filmed with him is slightly different to some of the others that we’ve filmed so far in that he is talking about the reasons that sports professionals make excellent potential employees from a recruiter’s perspective. During the short preview below he suggests that elite athletes and sports professionals are part of a small, but determined minority who have the potential to thrive in any industry, regardless of the level their sporting career was played at due to the attributes they developed during it.
