About Thomas McGovern

I can help students with

​I graduated from an MBA in 2018 after completing my Journalism course (also at Leeds Trinity) in 2015.

I have particular strengths in copywriting and communications, with over 3.5 years’ experience in communications role since gaining a first-class Journalism degree.

More recently I have developed skills and a great interest in business and marketing and am currently in the process of setting up my own consultancy service which will support professional football clubs in attracting more ethnic minority supporters. I have worked with premier league football club Huddersfield Town and following coverage of my work on BBC Radio Leeds, the Yorkshire Post and the Huddersfield Examiner, I have been contacted by a number of other clubs in the area regarding the support I can offer.

I would have great interest in mentoring a student seeking a career in marketing and communications, particularly in the sports industry. 

I myself have had a mentor for the last 2.5 years and have benefited massively from that and would relish the opportunity to give that back to someone else.​
