From being a swimming instructor, a referee, a sport nutritionist, a race car mechanic, to a sport photographer and many more, this book will take you through a day in the life of 25 sporty workers, showing you how each job unfolds on a typical working day. You’ll learn what it takes to get the job, what duties and tasks are involved, and discover a world of opportunities. Turn the pages and find out the best part of a lifeguard’s day and what really bothers a personal trainer… HINT: it involves stinky gym clothes!
 
With a variety of careers covered, from jobs in science, professional sport, the arts and many more, this book is sure to inspire children’s ambitions and get them excited for their futures. Aimed at sport loving readers aged 7 and older the illustrated narrative approach tells the story of each career and helps introduce children to the world of work in a playful, engaging way.
 
When they’ve finished reading, children will have gained an overview of each of the featured jobs and will have discovered that you can turn a passion, an interest or a hobby into a rewarding career.
