Callum Elliott has been a part of Nottingham Forest Community Trust since he was 16-years-old. Callum started out by enrolling on to our B-TEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport in 2013, he progressed on with the course and went on to achieve three Distinction grades.
After beginning his education with Nottingham Forest Community Trust, Callum quickly got a job in the Nottingham Forest Megastore at aged 16. Callum said ‘I stayed in the Megastore for 3 years and within that timeframe I became a contracted member of staff and a vital part of the team.’ After his time at the Nottingham Forest Megastore Callum re-joined the Trust at aged 20 in 2017. Callum became a Facility Duty Manager at our facility The Forest Sports Zone. Callum explained ‘I was at The Forest Sports Zone for 2 years and I received a promotion earlier this year to Assistant Facility Manager.’
In late October of 2019, Callum changed his role within the Trust and became the Finance and Support Services Assistant, re-locating him back to The City Ground where his journey started. We spoke to him about his new role, ‘I am eager to kick-start my career within the Finance Department and very excited to see the growth of The Trust and to continue seeing the phenomenal work we currently deliver across Nottinghamshire.’
He went on to explain ‘I enjoy coming to work everyday knowing the valuable work we do across our programmes is changing lives and communities. The Forest Sports Zone is an integral part of the local community that provides them with state-of-the-art facilities. Now within my new role, I want to expand my work across the Trust, supporting each programme that we deliver and starting an exciting journey within the financial sector.’
Callum is a life-long Nottingham Forest fan, ‘I’ve supported them since I was a little boy and being associated with the club I’ve supported for over 20 years is fantastic.’ Since his time at The Trust Callum has not only made progression here with the job roles he has had but he has also gained some valuable qualifications over the years. He now has his BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, Level 1 & Level 2 Coaching Badges and his Level 2 in Mental Health Awareness.
We are excited to continue supporting Callum in his new role and his personal development here at Nottingham Forest Community Trust.
