Macdonald Henderson has acted for Sport Careers Limited in the completion of an investment in the company by former Scottish football internationalists David Weir (Sheffield United manager) and Gavin Rae (player/coach Dundee FC) and their appointment to the board of directors of the company.

Launched in 2011/12 Sport Careers is dedicated to people in sport and helping them to achieve the next step in their careers.

The company offers a superb range of marketing products, including CV profiles, LinkedIn pages, brochures, management philosophy documents and much more, to help sporting professionals promote themselves.

Ambassadors of Sport Careers include former Scotland managers Craig Brown CBE and Alex McLeish.

Sport Career’s Director David Chalmers said

“The business has progressed at a significant rate since the addition of Gavin and David as Directors and the company has already added 3 new staff, new software and we are currently seeking out bigger office premises to continue our expansion. David Beveridge and his team at Macdonald Henderson have been fabulous in the professional counsel they have offered us during the investment process, as raising private equity is a new area for myself as a Director and their support has been greatly appreciated. We will have no hesitation in using Macdonald Henderson for any future legal requirements as the companies develop”.

Macdonald Henderson is delighted to have advised Sport Careers on this exciting new chapter in the business’s development, and congratulate David and the team for the tremendous progress made in such a short space of time.
