Whilst studying her degree, Beth had a few part time responsibilities. These include working part time with KPMG as a graduate hunter and working at the Durham Ginstitute, as well as captaining the Durham University Women’s Rugby 1st XV.
Not only did she achieve a first-class degree, but she completed this whilst also working to be the most successful Durham University captain, with an unbeaten season and first ever attendance at the National Finals, within its 36 years of existence. This successful year was only improved when she represented England A’s against USA in November.
dBA is very proud to say that they sponsor Beth Blacklock with her degree and look forward to having her complete more work with them in the future, simultaneously with the other endeavours we are excited to see her follow.
First step post undergraduate, MSc in Defence, Development and Diplomacy. A true testament to her character is that she will be completing this on a fully paid scholarship form Durham University, whilst she again has been asked to stay on as Captain. After receiving a Full Palatinate award and a Lifetime Team Durham Membership for her international honours and commitment to the club, Beth was recognised as one of the driving cogs in the successes of Durham’s rugby this season. This was for captaining the side to both, being the only ever DUWRFC side to ever finish the league unbeaten, and to captaining to their first ever final at Twickenham.
It is clear that we have chosen a fantastic person to sponsor and we are proud to support Beth through her education and watch how she represents the attitudes and ethos of this company at her University. We also look forward to seeing what Beth achieves, and what she can bring to the company.
