We’re proud to be sport’s leading recruitment and executive search consultancy. Our unrivalled approach to talent identification in sport is why Premier League football clubs, global sporting brands, governing bodies, agencies and major venues trust The Executives In Sport Group with all their recruitment needs.

Our team work tirelessly to unearth the very best people within sport but also, crucially, the very best people from the wider business world with great transferable skills. We’re trusted to deliver talent, from Graduate, through to Board level and our geographical reach is broad, having successfully delivered projects globally.



Leaders in sport are a significant investment. We’re expert at delivering senior sports Executive Search and headhunt assignments, working closely with clients on an exclusive and highly confidential basis, to identify, attract and secure the perfect individual.

Our clients, including major Premier League Football Clubs, Venues, Agencies and Governing Bodies, work with us because our knowledge and contacts in the sports industry is unrivalled.

Aiming to network with the very best passive talent in sport and the wider business  community, we call upon some of sport’s leading figures to introduce us to the very best talent. Our superb screening and referencing processes ensure you get a unique insight into the most talented individuals before meeting them for the first time.



Our Exclusive Contingency service provides a sports recruitment solution in situations where the traditional Executive Search model might not be appropriate, such as when the salary range for a role is outside of the scope for Executive Search.

One of the most cost effective ways to recruit at middle management level and below within sport, we provide a streamlined executive search / headhunt. We search our extensive database of sports candidates, network with key contacts, and advertise your vacancy in a variety of high profile media, including online and print.

Our expertise ensures that you have access to the very best and talented individuals within sport, and also best in class from the business world with great transferable skills.



When speed , quality and responsiveness is of the essence we provide a unique and bespoke interim management solution, giving sports businesses access to the most talented individuals on a short to medium-term consultancy basis.

Understanding that sport is a dynamic and fast-changing industry, our interim solution provides highly experienced and skilled individuals who take on key positions in some of the following situations:

  • In the lead up to major sporting events
  • Where a key member of staff has departed unexpectedly
  • During takeover negotiations where third party due diligence is required
  • During administration when experienced professionals are required to hold key roles in the short term

Where ambitious and forward thinking businesses look to grow and need the advice of people who have already been through that journey successfully.

We have great relationships with some of the most prominent and respected figures in Sport and Business who can be available for short to medium term interim positions.
