Meet The Team

We're the Athlete Strategy & Partnerships team. We look after athletes from recruitment to celebrating their achievements and everything in between. Admin or mental and physical health - it's a holistic approach to support. Partnering with other teams across the business, we give our athletes the right tools they need to train, recover and race at their best, as well as the right platforms to celebrate their personalities and achievements.

We're the friend who shows you where to find city adventures, the run crew captain who won't let you slow into the finish, the trail runner who pushes you to the summit to soak up the sunrise. We also sit at desks sometimes, but our inner-explorers mean we are constantly seeking fresh ways to connect and engage our athletes and communities. If you're bursting with original ideas, with the strategic mindset to back them up and the skills, and drive to see them realised, this is the team for you.
