Team Structure

Real Skills is essentially a student-lead and student-run organisation.
Over the course of 4 years, we have seen close to one hundred incredible individuals volunteer their time to provide high quality professional development services to our students and our industry partners.
As of 2020, our student-run operations team is at 50-strong, across all of our divisions. This number is only expected to continue growing as our operations continue to expand.


With the growing size of our operations team, we are constantly bringing senior and junior professionals to assist Real Skills’ strategic direction, while supporting our operation operations with resources and external advice.

Business Development

Our Business Development team have been working closely with our Directors to strategise and lead the implementation of brand new initiatives closely tied into RSE’s 3 year strategy plan.
