“I worked with David and his team at the start of the season as we looked to build the strongest support team we possibly could.”
“The work they did, in a short period of time, enabled us to bring in a range of experts from across Europe within football and the wider high performance world and create shortlists for a number of roles.
This gave us the peace of mind and confidence that we were choosing some of the best practitioners in the business. I can say with confidence they helped create the strongest team I have ever worked with.”
Max Sala – Head of Sports Medicine First Team at Manchester City Football Club
“I have worked with Elite Performance Partners for the last couple of years in a number of areas of our business; including City Football Group, the 1st team, our Academy and central business functions.”
“They have enabled us across multiple areas of the business to benchmark our own talent with the external market putting a thorough, rigorous and professional recruitment process around each role.
Their network within the performance world enabled them to be more agile than a typical search firm and cope with the tight timeframes that the organisation often operates in. They were open, transparent, found us great people and more than anything were a pleasure to work with.”
Fiona Brown – Group HR Director at City Football Group
“Elite Performance Partners were brought to my attention after they did a piece of consultancy work with City Football Group on our performance systems and structures.”
“We worked with them for two senior management roles in our Academy. They quickly understood the specific skills and experience we were looking for whilst also vitally recognising the softer skills required to be a success in our environment and culture.
They benchmarked our internal candidates against the external market allowing us to make an informed decision on who fitted best for the roles. Their network and knowledge of high performance sport allowed them to challenge our thinking and present candidates from areas we wouldn’t have automatically considered.
ultimately the candidate we hired in their most recent search has already in the first month made a huge impact and been a great fit in an already established and successful team which is the biggest compliment you can give.”
Mark Allen – Academy Director at Manchester City
