How we can help you.
We believe Athletes are extremely valuable & employable.
The Transition Phase is an early careers programme that supports talent from a high level sporting background successfully transition from sport to work. We have learnt from our own experience that there is a lack of support and help provided to athletes. We want to change that.
“Athletes represent people who are disciplined, used to taking direction but able to take initiative, skills that are widely accepted as useful in the market.”
Our Process for your Success
We utilise our own experience of having successfully transitioned from elite sport in to professional work, to support you through your own career transition and to help you recognise how valuable you can be to an organisation.
We have strong relationships with high profile organisations across a range of sectors, who are actively looking to hire people specifically like you!
Our ever-growing community provides you with a support network of like-minded former athletes, who have been through their own successful career transitions and are passionate about helping others on their journey.
“As a former professional athlete, I’ve experienced first-hand a lack of specialist support and duty of care in place, to help individuals prepare for and thrive through career transition, which is why I’m passionate about providing support
and guidance to
our athletes.” – Riteesh
Having been through our own career transitions, we recognise the transferable skills that elite athletes possess, and aim to help you channel and apply those skills in an alternative environment. We deliver workshops and provide support and guidance through the key stages of an athlete’s transition in order to secure the best outcome for you.
“We see it as our responsibility to educate organisations as to how individuals with an elite performance background possess a core set of behaviours and skills that can provide a competitive advantage,
if nurtured correctly.” – John
We have the expertise to help you as an athlete to know what the most suitable and relevant career paths are for you, based on your motivations, background and preferences.
Our relationships with organisations across a wide range of industries, gives us access to job opportunities that are relevant, and play to the strengths of candidates from a high performance sporting background. We partner with you to coach you throughout the application and interview process and are committed to finding the right career for you individually.
“Career transition can be tough
– I was lucky to have a really strong support network around me but recognise that not everybody has access to this. I’m therefore passionate about providing an ongoing community of support to our athletes, enabling them to learn and develop together
as their careers progress.” – Sam
We deliver tailored mentorship programmes, matching athletes with business professionals to provide you with the opportunity to develop your network and to receive cross-sector support and ongoing coaching and mentoring throughout the early stages of your career.
We also have a growing network of athletes who have successfully transitioned careers, allowing us to provide an online community for you to engage in, learn from and stay connected to individuals with similar experiences.
“I cannot thank the Transition Phase enough for their support and guidance whilst finding my new position. They took the time to get to know me and understand what was important when transitioning into a career. Because TTP have good relationships with numerous clients, I had multiple interviews, which allowed me to compare and assess where I would fit best. If you are an athlete looking to move into the workplace, or still not sure if it’s the time, I would recommend reaching out to TTP for knowledgeable and honest advice!”
“I believe my biggest trait derived from my sporting career is perseverance and proving before requesting. In my experience, people tend to first ask for, and then they deliver. Personally, I like to have the ability and the urge to prove to an employer what I am capable of, and through those actions, establish the respect and/or value that my performance warrants.”
“It was clear from the get go how passionate the Transition Phase is to help former athletes into new jobs. With sports backgrounds themselves, they understand the challenge one can have moving from full time sport into an office job. “
