Welcome to UUM

United Urban Movement Knowledge Hub



A big element of this project was for the participants involved to learn about aspects regarding volunteering and employment. The employment world of sport is diverse and there’s opportunity for people from all walks of life to become involved, as there are jobs ranging from things such as coaches, fitness instructors and personal trainers, to lawyers, accountants and marketing experts, and everything in between and around those areas!

In April 2022, the UUM participants travelled to Cascais, Portugal and took part in various employability and volunteering workshops. In the slides below, you will find information about many different topics, some of which might give you inspiration and help you to secure your next opportunity!
