Athlete Futures Careers Fairs

The UK Sport Athlete Futures Network is a holistic programme of work which is delivered in partnership by UK Sport and the English Institute of Sport (EIS), but also supported by the British Olympic and Paralympic Associations. The Network is supported by EIS Performance Lifestyle Advisers working on the frontline, advising and supporting athletes to prepare for life after elite sport through practical guidance around education, training, employability and skills development.

As part of the Athlete Futures Network programme, we commit periodically to running career and development fairs and workshops for our athletes to enable them to engage with prospective employers to provide for meaningful work placements, work shadowing, part-time jobs and indeed full-time work for those transitioning out of elite sport.

In 2013 and 2016, following the London and Rio Games respectively, we did this on a large scale but for 2018 following the PyeongChang Winter Games, we would like to pursue four roadshow events which bring prospective local employers and development opportunities to the athletes who are based all over the UK.

UK Sport would now like to appoint a supplier to help source potential employers from a variety of industries, to attend each of the four workshops, which are planned to take place in 2018. The workshops are scheduled as follows:

  • 16th May, Bisham Abbey, Bisham
  • 23rd May, Loughborough University, Loughborough
  • 4th June, Bath University, Bath
  • October date TBC, Manchester National Velodrome Centre, Manchester

Tenders will be accepted for one or more of the workshops.

Suppliers wishing to tender are requested to register their expression of interest by emailing jess.pether@uksport.gov.uk by 3pm on 13 January 2018 along with any clarification questions they may have in accordance with paragraph 8 of this ITT.
