WHAT'S BEEN SAID ABOUT US?

It was really painful before you guys came along!

Moving jobs can be extremely stressful and confusing but they made the whole process stress-free. The role was a perfect fit, levels of contact were first-class and they kept in touch during my first few months to make sure a smooth transition.


Head of Membership, National Governing Body

They understand the kind of people we need. They mention a few names straight away and have them on the phone later that day. You can’t buy contacts like that.


Managing Director, Sports Sponsorship Consultancy

A recruitment agency that genuinely cares about my career – it’s how recruitment should be done.


Head of Ticketing – Champion’s League Football Club

You’ve added a level of professionalism that I didn’t think was possible from a recruiter.

From the first phone call I was amazed by the friendliness and professionalism of the consultant handling the opportunity. Always ready to help, providing consistent feedback at speed, and they got me a great job in the sport I love and played. Thank you.


Commercial Director, Pro14 Rugby Club

Productivity shot up because we could focus on running our club and leave the experts to hire great people. As well as great talent they give us back that most valuable commodity – TIME!


Chief Executive, Pro14 Rugby Club

We have very impromptu demands but they’ve always delivered within our timeline. They know the market and who’s out there, so they suggest possible candidates straight away. They’ve given us some of our best people.


HR Director, Global Sports Broadcaster

I tell all my friends and colleagues in sport about The Executives In Sport Group. They did a brilliant job for me and I feel like I should spread the word! Top class!


Head of Stadium Operations, Premier League Football Club

Executives In Sport Group has the best pool of contacts and talent – it’s a no-brainer for us.


Chief Executive, Championship Football Club

I love my new job! Executives In Sport Group matched both my skills and personality to the right role and company. I never thought I’d find a job I feel so passionately about.


Head of Marketing, Championship Football Club

They just get us. They get our culture and who’s going to thrive in it. I wouldn’t ask anyone else to represent us at the C-Suite level.


Head of People, International Sports Venue

The consultant wasn’t just looking to fill a role in front of him. He really understood what my next move needed to be and helped me think about what I wanted for my career in the long term. I’ve never experienced a recruitment agency like it.
