Sport England

We’re here to invest in sport and physical activity to make it a normal part of life for everyone in England, regardless of who you are.

Because it’s not always a level playing field. Right now, the opportunities to get involved in sport and activity – and reap the rewards of being active – depend too much on your background, your gender, your bank balance and your postcode.

We’re determined to tackle this and unlock the advantages of sport and physical activity for everyone.

This isn’t just about our long-standing purpose of helping more people to enjoy playing sport and being physically active. We believe that by removing existing barriers to sport and activity, we can be part of a bigger picture of work that helps to address many of society’s biggest challenges.

Uniting the Movement is our 10-year strategy for 2021-31 aiming to do just that.

Together, we can change lives for the better in every home, and in every community, right across the country.

Our Values

Our values define who we are as an organisation and highlight what we do to go the extra mile to set us apart. From creating an organisation we all enjoy, believe and thrive in, to creating a positive employer brand and effective partnerships with our stakeholders.

  • We are Collaborative

One team committed to delivering together and working with others to make a difference to people’s lives.

  • We are Inclusive

Harnessing our collective strength and respecting difference to create the conditions for everyone to engage and to excel.

  • We are Innovative

Curious, optimistic and relentless, we question established ways of working and learn from each other and from our experiences.

These values are an integral component to our recruitment and selection processes. This approach is intended to attract and select employees on the basis that their individual values and behaviours align with our values.  

Of course, skills, experience and aptitude will continue to be important, but by integrating values into our selection processes, we ensure that we recruit the right people not only with the right skills, but with the right mindset.

Diversity

Diversity is critical for the business to be successful. We strive to further equality and diversity in the workplace and the sports sector as a whole.

As an employer, we aspire to being a diverse, inclusive and responsible organisation. Our aim is to have a workforce that can reflect and understand the communities we serve.

We respect and value our individual characteristics and differences, so staff can fully realise their potential. That’s why we aim to ensure that the people who work for us are the best they can be. 

We recognise the achievements, talent, passion and experience in our staff, who can help deliver our strategic outcomes – you don't have to be sporty to work at Sport England.
