At Elite Performance Partners, we don’t just find you the right person for the job – we believe there’s more to the recruitment process in the sports sector. Our service is about delivering the bigger picture. With our unique combined background in elite sport and executive search we understand that the best results come when a candidate not only has the skills required for the role but is aligned to the higher purpose and culture of the organisation. We pride ourselves on a discreet and comprehensive service. We see our relationship with you as a partnership – you will be with us every step of the way from the identification of candidates through to recruitment and beyond as we help you plan strategically for the future success of your organisation. Anyone can deliver candidates. At Elite Performance Partners, we deliver results.
We work across the breadth of the sports sector functionally and geographically. Focusing specifically on our approach to elite performance, we work by looking at every recruitment assignment through the eyes of the athlete, the coach and the organisation’s leaders. Our clients tell us when it comes to solving performance issues through recruitment, our team are second to none and that their performance is maximised because we help the organisation and its performance specialists come together. When we search for specialists, we aim to deliver the ultimate blend of experience and fit.
Sporting success does not depend on elite performance alone. We help our clients manage the bigger picture and build a seamless and successful organisation. We understand the symbiotic relationship between personal growth and business growth and that understanding is contained in our processes and the technology applied to every recruitment assignment we manage.
Success in sport on the field or as a business, depends increasingly on a modern organisation staffed by dedicated, professional people focused on achieving outstanding results. For Elite Performance Partners, this is our legacy and this is where we work.
