Hi there, I’m James, Volunteer and Work Experience Manager at Bee Active.

I graduated from MMU University with a foundation degree in Coaching and Sports Development in 2013. Before my degree I was at South Cheshire College in Crewe on a Level 3 BTEC Coaching and Sports Development course. Whilst at College and University I loved being apart of the sports environment which led me into working at Stoke City Football Club. I left Stoke City in August 2016 and I joined Bee Active in December 2016.

When I joined Bee Active I was just a Volunteer for the first 3 days and after this I was offered a Part Time Contract. In February 2017 I was offered a Full Time contract with the company and I was over the moon with this as I had really enjoyed my first couple of months with the company. I am now a Senior Coach and the Volunteer and Work Experience Manager which I couldn’t be more delighted with as I love working here.

Away from work I play a variety of sports which are Football, Tennis and Golf. I also play a very unusual sport called Octopush which is underwater hockey! If you see my around don’t be afraid to ask about it, because some people find it very interesting, others maybe not!

Looking forward I would love to be at Bee Active developing my skills and growing with this company. It an amazing place to work and everybody who works at Bee Active are fantastic.
