The business of sport is huge - it is estimated to be worth £23.8 billion in earnings and 987,564 in jobs to the UK economy. It is also a rapidly changing industry, and so many sports are now played and viewed on a global scale, creating significant opportunities for increasing commercial activities such as sponsorship but also increasing the demands by the audience to deliver to their needs.

The sporting landscape has also drastically changed over the last 10 years with the proliferation of digital media and the various devices that can now view sport in a live environment - through digital television, streaming on the internet, via tablet and mobile devices. Competition has increased and delivering to this level of demand can prove challenging for many businesses in the sporting sector.

We understand the need for sporting organisations to recruit market leading business professionals who are experts in dealing with the fast and dynamic pace of the modern competitive sports market. We know you need a high calibre individual who is focused on the customer need, but also has the vision and strategic insight to deliver the right commercial opportunities.

We have substantial experience in this sector, and some of the successful assignments we have completed include:

  • Chairperson
  • Chief Commercial Officer
  • Sales & Marketing Director
  • Head of Sports Science
