2021 – just was.

It must be something about getting older, but the years just seem to be getting shorter. Celebrating our 25th anniversary was certainly a milestone for all of us involved with Sportspeople Recruitment & despite the tough economic conditions, we’ve had one of our best years ever across both our executive search & general recruitment divisions.

It’s certainly fulfilling to still be growing after 25 years of continual operations.

And while the people behind the Sportspeople Recruitment brand provide the heart & soul to what we do every day, our business continues to enjoy its success through the bonds we have with job seekers and employers.

I’d like to express our gratitude to every candidate that applied for a job Sportspeople Recruitment managed in 2021. Despite the hard reality only one candidate will be successful for each job, we acknowledge with thanks the effort you made when applying for a role we were recruiting. It’s not easy being a job seeker, a fact too many recruiters & employers continue to overlook. We hope you felt you were considered on factors of merit, you were kept updated on your application & if unsuccessful, you felt you had the opportunity to seek guidance & feedback. And of course, to those candidates who were successful, congratulations on being the best of the best. Thank you from all of us.

We also know employers have a choice to DIY or perhaps use the services of other recruitment agencies. For those that placed their trust in Sportspeople Recruitment in 2021 we hope we met your expectations & the staff appointed make long-lasting, positive contributions to your organisations.

In 2021 more employers in the Australian/New Zealand sport sector trusted Sportspeople Recruitment for their executive & general search than any other agency. Our executive search team filled more CEO roles than the combined total of the 3 other ‘specialist agencies’, a testament to our heritage, results & methodology. And we recruited for more employers than any other. Thank you from all of us.

Sportspeople Recruitment operates as a team for all executive search & general recruitment. I’d like to acknowledge the ongoing professionalism of our team including Angelique EverettScott Oakhill,  Karen Good & Lachlan McMurtrie. It’s not only what you do that makes Sportspeople Recruitment successful, it’s the way you do it. Thank you.

Thanks also to all our/my followers for your support of the many LinkedIn articles and posts. There’s always something to discuss within our profession and we remain committed to raise these issues without fear or favour.

We finish 2021 much as we started, with a diverse range of opportunities available including Head of Partnerships, Wollongong 2022 + General Manager, Community & Participation, Equestrian Sports New Zealand & other roles to be listed before Xmas.

From all of us at Sportspeople Recruitment, we hope you have a safe, enjoyable Xmas and a successful 2022.
