Behind every great sporting event there is an army of workers. Leading from the front are a select group of highly skilled and vastly experienced executives whose job it is to ensure all runs smoothly.
It’s a challenge, but one that is more than achievable providing you have the right people performing the right roles. Luckily, we can help you.
The Executives in Sport Group has provided executive recruitment services for a global portfolio of sporting organisations, institutions, governing bodies, clubs and teams. Our solution can play a key role in delivering events from the Olympic and Commonwealth Games. Through to the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA European Championships.
The size of the event is not important, it’s the executive talent you need that matters most to us.
By working in close partnership with you, you can access our comprehensive overview of the international events calendar and develop your pipeline over the course of the year. This enables us to mobilise an army of geographically and functionally diverse professionals, whilst ensuring you have the executive talent in place when you need it.
There is a reason why a plethora of major sporting event organisers have retained our services over the years: we not only ‘get’ what you need, we also have access to an international pool of talent and the key contacts who can open the doors to those individuals that are best-suited to fill your roles.
Anyone can claim to have unrivalled knowledge of the executive sports industry. But the extent to which a recruiter truly understands the market becomes clear with the very first interaction you have with them. Executives in Sport Group’s client portfolio, retention rates and track record of success says all you need to know about how we translate your personnel needs into tangible results – no matter how complex the supply chain is.
The lead-time for any major sporting event runs into years, rather than months. That means the approach to recruitment needs to be very different than it is for traditional executive search. This is why we have developed the ‘Sports-Ready List’.
As an industry-first initiative, our Sports-Ready List tracks the movement of talented consultants and contractors up to eight years in advance of the event itself. This enables organisers to both talent map and forward plan their key staffing requirements.
There is no substitute for quality – reputations can be won or lost on it. That’s why the service we provide for each and every client is at the heart of all that we do. There are potentially thousands, millions or even billons of people who will watch and attend your sporting event and it is our responsibility to ensure it is memorable for all the right reasons.
The people you hire will be critical to this success. So, whether it’s providing fully account-managed status reports for your project or making sure you receive timely and regular updates on key project deliverables, your dedicated team of recruiters will go the extra mile to meet and exceed your hiring expectations. This time, and every time.
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.
