Where Are You Now?

Nadia Haif

BA Journalism 2010

Nadia Haif kicked off her career as a presenter reporting from the World Cup in South Africa in 2010, just after graduating from the University of Sunderland with a degree in Sports Journalism. She is working since then as a Team Assistant for BBC Sport at Salford.

“I knew from a very young age that I wanted to work in sport,” says Nadia. “University prepared me very well for the real world, and when I graduated I travelled straight to South Africa for the World Cup in the hope of doing some networking.

“My time at Sunderland boosted my confidence and ability to work with people, so I felt I was ready to really go for it. I bugged all my contacts for work experience and soon landed an internship with the BBC in London, working on the Wimbledon coverage.

“Today, I book guests, co-ordinate schedules and work in the live studio for programmes such as Fighting Talk on Radio 5 Live. I love it here, and it’s great to see people from outside London being given more opportunity to work in the creative industries.”
