Global event management and sports consultancy Rushmans has launched a specialist recruitment business, clinic offering fresh options for sports sector employers and candidates through UK-based Impact Sports Recruitment.
The recruitment agency will provide a full range of services to organising committees and other sports sector organisations. Impact will operate independently while also providing Rushmans with a dedicated resource for meeting the staffing needs of its projects.
Founder Nigel Rushman stated: “This is a significant step forward for Rushmans. Quality people are critical to every element of the sports business, apoplectic from organising events to running governing bodies.
“Impact Sports Recruitment provides us with the ability to add this essential service to our consultancy and event management offering, thumb ensuring that the plans, processes and strategies we develop on behalf of clients are implemented by the best qualified and appropriately experienced people from around the world.”
Impact Sports Recruitment will act as the official recruitment service for the Sports Crowd social network of sports and events professionals, and the new company will be steered by Richard Graham, who has worked in the sports sector for 25 years.
Graham added: “Having our roots in a sports organisation and not a recruitment company is a major plus. In over a quarter of a century of working in sports globally, Rushmans has built up a tremendous network and understanding of a client organisation’s activities and their recruitment needs. That will allow us to offer a considered and targeted approach when identifying the types of candidates who would succeed in a particular role and environment.”
