Chad Barrett

ECB Level 4 Coach

As a recent ex professional cricketer, I am certainly not one to shy away from competition. I am an extremely positive and determined individual who is an exceptionally fast learner within any working environments. I am hard-working and passionate with every task I am set to do which is demonstrated through me achieving a 1st class honours in Sports Psychology specialising in cricket. Now that my professional sporting career has come to an end, I have now decided to concentrate on my new career path, where I can demonstrate my other skills and attributes that will make me a suitable candidate for a management position. In my current employment I run a charity organisation where I have proved to be resourceful and have exceeded the company’s expectations by increasing revenue by 100% within 18 months. Through my enthusiasm and good leadership skills, I have maximised both employer and company performance and productivity. Due to the expansion through my direct involvement the company is looking to expand and relocate. As a result, I have been working on a major development plan where I am in contact with residential developers, council planners and the local residents to upgrade their facilities to cope with the growth in demand. This shows I have a strong working knowledge of performance, operations and management. I have competent computer skills and I am intending to begin my master’s in Business management and administration in September 2020.
