One of the founder members of the Football League back in 1888, Aston Villa Football Club have played at Villa Park since 1897. That doesn’t mean they are averse to change though. During the 2016/17 football season, the club underwent a significant restructure and rebuild programme that would see them recruit from entry to senior level across a whole range of departments and skillsets. Enter The Executives In Sport Group, stage left.
Utilising a variety of methods, including executive search and market mapping and making full use of our internal talent database, we set about finding an array of people, across lots of disciplines, for roles that included everything from an Electrician to Interim Head of HR, 1st Team Performance Analyst to Health & Safety Manager and Head of Sales to IT Manager, and many more besides.
Despite the size of the challenge, our extensive and in-depth efforts to source the right individuals came to fruition with the successful appointment of people into every role the club needed to fill, and in good time too. The club was happy with the breadth of service we were able to provide, whatever the level, whatever the discipline, and we were happy that we were able to help such a famous club through a tricky period of recruiting.
I thought recruitment agencies were all the same but The Executives In Sport Group proved me wrong. They are warm, professional and genuine. They really cared about my needs and what I was looking for. I’m over the moon with my new role.
