NAME: Jack Haydock-Sale
WHERE DO YOU LIVE? Horwich
JOB: Membership Sales Advisor
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT THE ARENA? I started working here part-time when I was 16 when I was an attendant.
WHAT IS YOUR CAREER PATH? I went to St Joseph’s College in Horwich and then Runshaw College before studying at UCLan doing a degree in history and politics. I’d always loved sports and played football, cricket and rugby for the school. When I got my degree I wasn’t sure what to do with my life, but I knew I wanted to work in sports somehow. I’ve worked in every area the Arena – I’ve been a sports’ coach here and at St Joseph’s and until recently worked in reception at the Arena.
WHAT DOES YOUR JOB INVOLVE? I’ve been newly promoted to this role and I will be looking at retaining current members and getting new members and going out and about promoting the Arena. I’m really looking forward to this new challenge.
HOW DO YOU KEEP FIT? I go to the gym here three or four times a week. My favourite workout is on the rowing machine, after doing some weight training and having a run.
WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE ARENA? It’s got to be the people. The customers are great and I’ve made some very good friends among the staff.
WHAT JOB WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO LONG-TERM? I think I’d like to always be involved in sports, but on the commercial side. It’s really exciting, for example, that we’ve got a company like USN involved at the Arena.
