By Community | January 9, 2013

Hull FC owner Adam Pearson and business partner Tony Doherty have announced the introduction of Pro Sports Recruitment (PSR), abortion a national sport specialist recruitment company,  providing a focused and tailor-made search facility for sports professionals and organisations within the UK’s £27billion recruitment market.

Based in Leeds with an additional satellite office in Hull, PSR has been formed by managing partners Adam Pearson and Tony Doherty, who bring over 16 years of top level executive experience in the sport industry and a respective 12 years in the recruitment industry to the business.

PSR said in a release: “From ticket office to boardroom, covering all sports including football, cricket and rugby, PSR recognises successful sport needs exceptional talent off the field as well as on it. With a fitting launch at the start of the transfer window, the team aim to help recruiters and candidates find the perfect match with their knowledge of the market and competitive rates.”

Adam Pearson is the current owner of Hull FC Rugby League Club, having previously owned and chaired Hull City and Derby County, as well as being a former director of Leeds United. Tony Doherty, owner of Tigercom, has grown his recruitment consultancy into one of the biggest pan-european executive search firms, looking after global clients such as Samsung, HP and Dell. Mr Doherty has combined his knowledge with Mr Pearson, and the rest of the PSR team, to create a successful sports job outlet for those looking for a move or a new signing in their sports business.

Mr Pearson, managing partner at PSR and owner of Hull FC RLFC, said: “We all know it takes more than the players on the pitch to create a successful football, rugby or cricket team. The results lie in the off-field recruitment just as much as the professional sports men and women you have playing for your club or country. Having worked in the sports industry for over a decade, I know it can be hard and time consuming to search for the right candidate.

“By launching PSR, myself and Tony will provide professionals and organisations alike with a cost effective service to help support search, selection and placement with your sporting goals at the heart of our team’s aim.”

The one stop shop for all your sports personnel requirements, PSR facilitates all areas of sports expertise, tailoring its service to suit any sports organisation. The PSR team are based in offices situated on The Headrow in Leeds, with a satellite office in Hull. With an extensive candidate database of over 2,000 skilled personnel at any one time, they can fill any gap in your starting line up with the recruitment requirements you may have.
