Caitlin was offered the position with the Roosters after working as Game Day Coordinator for the Penrith Panthers, a role she secured after volunteering with the popular sporting team throughout her studies.

‘We did so much networking during our studies it was hard not to develop a list of valuable contacts!’ said Caitlin.
