About

National Olympic Committees (NOCs) can create their own Country programmes to provide you with continual and personalised support, advice and training to help you prepare for your career transition.

Over 30 countries use Athlete365 Career+, delivered in partnership with The Adecco Group, to complement the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) services, specifically in the area of career preparation and placements.

There is no guarantee that you will have a job as soon as your sporting career ends, but this programme is designed to help you prepare for the issues that you may face as you enter the job market. You will gain a better understanding of what the workplace needs from you, so that you can start planning your future.

What athletes have to say
I’ve now got the best of both worlds – the flexibility to pursue my sporting dreams plus a start on the career ladder.
Athlete365 Career+ has helped me get a great job and develop my career skills whilst earning a living and still training and competing at the elite level.
Athlete365 Career+ sessions have helped me to build my confidence about my work prospects. I’m aiming high in sport, work and life, and Athlete365 Career+ gives me the support and knowledge I need to hit those heights.
I’ve always raced my best when I’m pursuing something else in my life outside of sport. I think balance allows us to grow as people and not get too focused just on sport. It has also given me the confidence to pursue my sport as an independent athlete, which had a huge impact on successfully qualifying for Rio 2016.
