NRL School to Work Project Officer Lyndall Down on her experience as a woman working in rugby league during Women in League round, in her own words:
I have had the privilege of working at Melbourne Storm for over 3 years.
After working in both ARU and AFL, I came to Melbourne Storm after hearing about this fantastic culture from people within the sports industry.
I must admit that I did wonder if it really was as good as I had heard, but within a short space of time, it had truly exceeded all of my expectations.
For me, Melbourne Storm has become my second family. A place where I feel valued, respected and so immensely proud to contribute and play my role.
This comes from the amazing people that I am surrounded by everyday who are passionate, motivated, care for one another, and are truly committed and dedicated to this amazing club.
The thing I love most about the club is the respect every player, coach and staff member has for one another.
Everyone’s backgrounds and cultures are celebrated and everyone works together to ensure the club has continued success.
It’s a place where there is a lot of laughter, enthusiasm and a passion to continually improve and grow.
During this time of lockdown, I have truly missed seeing everyone at the club and being around people who make me proud to be part of the Melbourne Storm family.
