Tom Pritchard – Digital Marketing Officer

Tom joined the company in September in the newly-created role of Digital Marketing Officer, with the responsibility of looking after the website, ensuring that vacancies are promoted, writing press releases and creating graphics for use on social media.

He studied Sports Journalism at the University of South Wales in Cardiff, graduating in 2020 with First Class Honours. He then went on to do a Master’s degree in Sport Broadcast at Cardiff Metropolitan University, a course he will complete in March. Tom has always had a keen interest in marketing, with it being one of the core modules on his undergraduate course, and he sees this as a great opportunity to gain relevant experience early on in his career.

Unsurprisingly given the university courses he studied, Tom has a keen interest in all sports, but primarily rugby, cricket and football, and has had the opportunity to work in all three – completing university work placements with Scarlets and Glamorgan County Cricket Club before starting work as the Media Officer for JD Cymru Premier side Haverfordwest County on a part-time basis in September.

When he isn’t working in sport, Tom enjoys the playing side too, regularly turning out for Neyland Cricket Club in the summer months. Despite wanting to be a batsman growing up, his skills lie in the bowling department, with his best figures being 7-30, which he achieved last summer.
