A further three soon-to-be Richmond Institute of Sport Leadership graduates have gained employment at the Richmond Football Club, starting this year.

Macy Hall, Will Latchford and Layton Sketcher will join the Club as Fan Engagement Support Officer’s for the next six months.

It follows on from fellow RISL alumni Shayla Clarke’s appointment as a Marketing and Fan Engagement Officer in April.

The trio who earned the opportunity as a result of outstanding work during their extensive placement opportunities will assist the Club’s Fan Engagement team during the busy summer months which will include the 2020 AFLW season and AFL pre-season.

The students were also involved in the organisation and delivery of the Club’s official Grand Final live site and post-premiership family day.

The two massive events were attended by 25,000 Richmond fans across the two days.

Richmond Football Club’s Head of Education and Training, Damien Villarosa said that the students’ new roles showcased the exciting opportunities available within the football club for those that excelled in the RISL program.

“All of our students have been given fantastic industry placement and work experience opportunities throughout the year, building them up to be able to thrive in the sports industry. This is a great example of the steppingstones that RISL creates.”
