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 all about delivering the bigger picture.

Co-founded in 2013 by former professional rugby player David Slemen, Elite Performance Partners was created to bridge the gap between the context and unique performance environment of elite sport and the rigorous, process driven recruitment process’.

David had spent four years in senior roles at an international search firm finding senior executives for FTSE100 energy and industrial firms when he discovered that there were few, if any, sports executive search specialists who had experience of the professional sport arena first hand.

That unique background in elite sport drives Elite Performance Partners understanding of one of the fastest growing global business sectors. Elite Performance Partners can boast a unique inside track on the recruiting needs of the sports market. Combining this with our proven track record in executive search, business development and ownership advisory, we are powerful partners to sporting bodies striving for success.

We know 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 our clients as a partnership – you will be with us every step of the way from the identification of candidates right through to recruitment and beyond as we help you plan strategically for the future sustained success of your organisation.
