About Our Network
Our mission is to provide collaborative environments in which SportWorkers can develop their skills, knowledge, network and partnerships in both our dedicated ‘sport working’ locations and via our ‘online platforms’.
SportWorker.com is the online platform dedicated to the professional and personal development of the global SportWorker community. Through the active sharing of our collective knowledge and inspirational journeys, it is our genuine belief that we contribute to making the world a better place through sport.
We exist to foster a thriving sports scene and community and provide the best for our members to succeed. We are uniquely headquartered at the prestigious Maison du Sport International, in the Olympic Capital Lausanne, Switzerland. It is from here, in the heart of international sport, that our team has built collaborative spaces to promote our members’ contributions, giving real visibility across the global sport sector and serving to increase each individuals career, business, and work opportunities.
Who is Sportworker.com for?
“For the people who work in Sport! From professional athletes, their entourage to the grounds-people, from the C-suite and Sport Administrators to the sport intern, from volunteers to technical officials, from the ticket collector to the timekeeper, we embrace every individual who works in our essential industry.”
One of our major functions is to support the motivation of each Individual member. We believe that by informing and providing connectivity to our network that actively promotes its own members, we are best serving our community. Our ‘Individual members’ are provided FREE access to all of our core publications; the Talks, Podcasts, Blogs, Articles and our Weekly News Digest. And we are constantly working hard to curate, publish and maintain this availability for ALL!
For the freelancer, solopreneur, independent consultant, company of one, who loves the adventure of living major sport event to major sport event, yet at the same time as they orbit the globe, need to keep in constant contact with the community. ‘SportWorker’ members stay connected and can maintain a ‘Company Profile’ within the platform, ensuring they don’t miss any opportunities to secure their next big project. Along with all the content access provided to the ‘Individuals’, the ‘SportWorkers’ toolbox is supplemented with a daily news digest, exclusive member benefits, priority to our live events and discounted access to our dedicated ‘sport working’ spaces.
‘Company’ membership makes it easy for companies and event organisations to connect with our SportWorker community ‘who need the services you offer and offer the services you need’. Using our member network, companies can leverage the strength of our diverse, global community no matter where they are located. ‘Company’ members not only benefit from having their Corporate Profile listed in the company directory, but they also share the same benefits offered to both our ‘Individual’ and ‘SportWorker’ members for up to 5 team members, plus the ability to post unlimited job postings on our actively curated global job board.
