GlobalSportsJobs supports growth of Asian sports market

Comments Off on GlobalSportsJobs supports growth of Asian sports market

Global Sports and Media Group, owners of GlobalSportsJobs, has launched a new Chinese-English platform globalsportsjobs.cn developed specifically for the fast developing Asian sports market.

The new bespoke platform will allow local, regional and international sports organisations greater access to talent in one of the fastest growing sports markets. Founding partners of the new platform include high profile organisations such as The Hong Kong Jockey Club, The NBA, Infront Sports & Media, The Hong Kong Sports Institute and LeTV.

The Asian-Pacific region has experienced unprecedented growth over recent years, with future growth being fuelled by major events such as the 2018 IOC Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, the 2019 IRB Rugby World Cup in Japan and the IOC Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020.

Despite the region’s focus on raising awareness, participation and success at elite level and the continued investment in the sports agenda, capability gaps still exist in the local markets, foremost amongst which is the ability to attract a greater diversity and quality of talent to support these long-term goals.

The launch of globalsportsjobs.cn meets this strategic need. The new platform, the first of its kind in the Asian market, will host a wide range of sports industry job opportunities from entry level to senior management positions and will deliver career intelligence, market insights and a greater understanding of the regional industry. Karl Oliver, Global Sports and Media Group Executive Chairman, said:

Our investment in building a specialist sports industry platform that caters for the Asia Pacific market has been driven by our commitment to address the capability gaps and to be one of the catalysts for transparent and sustainable growth in the Asian sports market. We want to inspire a new level of professionalism by innovating the talent acquisition process in the region. We share the belief of our founding partners that this much needed resource will help the Asian market to better understand the breadth and depth of the sports industry, while providing sports organisations with a platform to further enhance their digital employment brand in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

The launch of the new Asian platform follows the successful introduction of local platforms in the French and German speaking markets globalsportsjobs.fr and globalsportsjobs.de, which support the global English language platform globalsportsjobs.com.

This new partnership, combined with the rapid growth of our business, is a clear endorsement not only of our technology and its capability to deliver extensive reach and access to a worldwide audience through our network of affiliate partners, but also of our in-depth understanding of the talent acquisition process in the sports industry and the changing needs of clients as their roles become more demanding, complex and sophisticated.
