Just the job – recruitment experts Investigo to support netball and rugby programmes at University of Bath

Award-winning recruitment experts Investigo are joining forces with the University of Bath in a unique sporting double-header.

The company will support the rugby and netball programmes based at the University for the 2017-18 season.

Both the BUCS Super Rugby and Netball Superleague teams will wear the Investigo logo on their kit. Club members from the sports will also enjoy the opportunity to benefit from Investigo’s expertise in the employment market.

Paul Mullins, Senior Director at Investigo, said: “The University of Bath has an excellent reputation for its sports offering and we are delighted to be affiliated with it through the sponsorship of both their netball and rugby teams.

“Our interest in the teams go well beyond just pitchside over the next 12 months. We are perfectly positioned to offer career advice to both the team and University Of Bath Alumni in what is very similar to the competitive sporting world, recruitment.”

Stephen Baddeley, Director of Sport at the University of Bath, added: “It is exciting to have a sponsor backing two different team sports at the University for the first time since I became Director of Sport.

“The University already has a strong track record in employability for its students and this kind of partnership can only enhance that reputation. We look forward to working closely with Investigo this season.”

Sportspeople are proven to have key skills when they move into the workplace including goal-setting, self-motivation, ability to work in a team and time-management.

An early showcase for the new partnership will come on Wednesday at Bath’s iconic Recreation Ground when Investigo will have its logo on the reverse of the men’s 1st XV shirts when they play their Super Rugby fixture against Loughborough. A crowd of more than 5,000 is expected to watch the Anniversary Game, sponsored by Iesis Group Ltd.

Team Bath will play a further six home Super Rugby games and nine home Superleague netball matches at the University’s Sports Training Village during the year ahead.
