Equality Statement

UK Sport is a recognised equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion, belief or gender.



Vacancies are normally advertised for a minimum of seven days but this will normally be around two weeks.

When you apply, you will be required to submit a CV and a personal statement indicating how you think you meet the criteria.

Due to the volume of applications, UK Sport will only contact those successful and selected for the first interview stage. This normally happens between seven to 10 days after the closing date of the vacancy.

If you don’t hear from us, you have regrettably been unsuccessful at this stage.

Interview Stage

If your application is successful, you will get a formal invitation for an interview with full instructions. Normally first interviews will consist of an unseen task followed by a panel interview but additional selection methods may be used if required. The intent is always to be able to assess the level of skill, knowledge and competencies linked to the role.

Based on your performance you may be called for a second interview which will normally take a more informal approach. You will also be given instructions before you come.

If you are not successful at this stage, you will be notified by a member of the HR team who will also provide you with feedback.

Successful Candidates

If successful, you will be contacted and an offer will be made.

Please note that all employment offers are subject to receipt of two work references that UK Sport finds satisfactory, medical fitness, identification which stipulates eligibility to work in the UK and confirmation of your last three years of employment or equivalent. If relevant, UK Sport will also seek to obtain proof of qualifications.
