UK Sport’s People Department is on a mission to build on the incredible success already achieved through strong networks of the most talented athletes, coaches, leaders and support teams working together to deliver medal-winning performances. To remain an influential, respected and world-leading sporting nation we need to keep attracting new talent, diversifying the workforce, and providing development opportunities for those with the drive and ambition to step forward. Our aim is to connect, develop and inspire. Whether considering a move from another high-performance sport setting, or already working in Olympic and Paralympic sport, we want to make it easy to understand the career options available and to signpost people towards their best next step. Each Olympic and Paralympic cycle brings change and new opportunities for progression and development - with many skills successfully transferring across roles and sports, there really is no limit to carving out a long, varied and fulfilling career. Explore Career Pathways in Olympic and Paralympic Sport Our immediate focus is on developing leadership capability and recruitment to key leadership positions, as identified through succession planning work with currently funded sports. World Class Programmes typically have four main functional areas each containing one or two key leadership roles that work closely together as part of a Performance Management or Senior Leadership Team. Together they have strategic responsibility for the high-performance programme and athlete pathway.
