One of our nucleargraduates will be representing Great Britain at the European Ultimate Championships at the end of July.
James Bauld is a Cohort 7 nucleargraduate sponsored by Rolls-Royce who plays, an unusual sport, Ultimate Frisbee. Ultimate is a fast-moving team sport enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of players the world over. Although frequently compared to sports like soccer or American Football, Ultimate has some unique features that set it apart. There are no referees. And it’s played with a flying disc.
“I picked up ultimate whilst at University and was selected to represent GB at the Under-23 World Championships in 2013, just before I started the scheme. Ultimate is an interesting sport as having no referees means that conflict resolution is a key skill required to play the game. I genuinely believe that my experience through playing Ultimate, and running the club during university, is what gave me the edge in my application process for nucleargraduates.”
“The graduate scheme has really supported me in my goal to reach a high level in this sport and to represent GB on the senior team. It’s good to have a programme team who recognise that becoming a well-rounded employee is dependent on achieving goals inside and outside of the workplace.”
