Why use Global Sports over standard job platforms?

Global Sports provides a sports industry-specific network and a personalised account management service that addresses your unique challenges. General job boards provide a high volume of applications, but Global Sports focus on delivering quality candidates through a broader service, including employer branding, detailed analytics, and sports industry expertise. Saving you time, money and helping you hire the best people.

What performance data do you provide for job advertising?

Our standard performance reporting delivers all key data metrics connected to the platform, vacancies, applications and candidates. These include benchmark performance of vacancies across the industry and visual analysis of candidate profiles applying for your vacancies through metrics such as geography, diversity & inclusion, experience levels and functional expertise.

You can receive the applications either by email providing the address you want us to redirect the applications to or directly on your ATS.

Can I have access to candidate CVs directly from your database?

We are not able to grant you direct access to the CVs of candidates in our database. They will first need to specifically apply for the position you are advertising for you to receive their CV.

Is there flexibility on how long we can post roles on the platform for?

Roles are normally live on the platform for one month from the day of posting. However, dependent on the situation we can provide flexibility for our clients on the length of time their roles are live on the Global Sports platform.

We have a truly global reach for candidates and well-established international networks so we can help wherever a hire may be needed geographically. As Sports specialists, we are very used to hiring all head office roles as well as more niche positions in elite sports or sport business, and we’re proud of the broad diversity of the candidates we help to hire.

How much does Global Sports Hiring cost?

Every client’s situation is totally unique - from your timeframes to your types of hires, to the level of involvement you’d like our embedded hiring team to have along the recruitment process. We customise every solution to your specific situation so pricing can vary. Unlike traditional recruitment agencies where you pay a large fee based on a successful hire, or a retained fee for executive search, we work out a flexible monthly subscription price based on the time required to fill your vacancies. Which means it’s more affordable and you get exactly what you pay for. 

How many hires can you manage?

Most of our clients are looking to fill 25-50 hires a year, however, some recruit well over 100 positions. We also help with high-volume urgent hiring for major events, so we are used to building solutions that can support with hundreds of hires if needed, as well as those tricky few roles that sometimes need some expert support.

How long does it take to get started?

A typical solution design and set-up phase takes around 4 weeks. Again, this depends on how much integration we have with systems and processes to adapt to your preferred ways of working. In some instances, we have started within a week of discussing the hiring challenges with a client!
