November 2023 – change is in the air!

As a full-scope agency, Sportspeople Recruitment has remained busy through 2023 successfully filling roles from entry-level and middle-management, while continuing to be the trusted, first-choice recruiter for employers looking for an executive search partner.

Right now we’re working with Netball NSW, NT Cricket, City of Canterbury Bankstown, Dandenong Basketball Association and The Royal Sydney Golf Club. We’ve recently completed roles for Football Tasmania, Vicsport, Rugby Australia, Sky Stadium, Australian Croquet Association and Macarthur Football Association.

In a tight-candidate market we’re finding  the competition for talent is greater than ever before. That’s why we invest in identifying and nurturing talent, with over 85% of our shortlist referrals now generated through our Talent Network.

My role with Sportspeople Recruitment has evolved over time, with an increased focus on targeting and talent identification. My continuing role as Director, Search & Talent will focus on the identification of top-quality candidates for the Sportspeople Recruitment Talent Network, targeting candidates for our recruitment initiatives, and nurturing our relationships with an ever-growing and loyal employer base across Australia and New Zealand.

I’m excited to welcome Scott Oakhill as he steps into the role of Managing Director, Sportspeople Recruitment. Over the past 7 years as Principal Consultant, Sportspeople Recruitment, Scott has successfully filled hundreds of roles for our clients in Australia and New Zealand. As an existing equity partner, along with his extensive knowledge of the recruitment sector, Scott’s experience best positions Sportspeople Recruitment for the future. Scott will also continue his role as Principal Consultant, Sportspeople Recruitment, as well as leading the plans to grow our team and our international network in 2024.

I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to the countless candidates and employers with whom we have had the privilege of working. People are at the core of everything we do, and your trust and collaboration have been pivotal to our continued success. I’d also like to thank Scott Oakhill, Karen Good and Angelique Everett for the outstanding work you do for our client employers and candidates every day.

For employers seeking to fill roles, needing guidance on remuneration or simply looking for a chat about your recruitment plans, Sportspeople Recruitment is here to help. We have a proven track record of identifying exceptional candidates others don’t know or can’t find.
