Professional Sports teams work with us to quickly and effectively staff corporate roles. Build your sustainable team with great people who fit your unique culture.

There are  plenty of headhunters and recruiters out there - we all know that. But if your company is in the sports industry, suddenly your choice of recruitment firms gets a whole lot smaller.

Sure, you could work with any of them, but, in reality, only a select few have a significant number of contacts in the field and sports-related candidates in their network.

Fortunately, our network in the professional sports world runs deep and we are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to deliver all the championship-level talent solutions your team needs.

How an executive search partner will benefit your team

Wondering why your sports organization should use a recruitment firm that specializes in the industry instead of keeping its hiring in-house? Here's what MSH uniquely brings to the table as a partner.

Goal-oriented and kpi-driven

You count the touchdowns, the hoops, the number of fans who come out to support your team … MSH tracks KPIs, hiring benchmarks, and metrics. The personalized hiring strategy we’ll develop together at the beginning of the recruiting process will include well-defined goals. And after you’ve hired someone? You’ll get access to valuable analytics showing your ROI.

Long-term focus

There are headhunters and recruiters out there who will quickly fill hiring slots … but six months down the road, those same hires are jaded and looking to move on. Not with MSH. You’ll end up with employees who go the distance because they truly fit into your team.

A large existing network

One of the primary benefits of working with a reputable recruitment firm like MSH is the powerful network of high-caliber and sports-obsessed candidates that we bring with us everywhere we go. This is especially important for organizations in the sports industry like yours that require candidates with a very specific background and skill set.

Balance of speed and quality

It’s kind of like how an exceptional athlete is both fast and strong all at once. An effective sports executive search firm like MSH must similarly balance both speed and quality. Sacrificing either one or the other will lead to a damaging hiring experience for our clients so we consistently strike the perfect balance.

Candidates who are fully vetted

We know exactly who we are recommending to you and why. All of MSH’s candidates are fully vetted before you ever lay eyes on them. That’s because we’ve painstakingly selected talent who we believe are a perfect match for all your needs and preferences.

Industry best practices and expertise to the table

Sure, you can go the in-house recruiting route - many sports and entertainment organizations do. But keep in mind that those internal teams don’t tend to have the specialized knowledge and background in hiring the same way an established recruitment firm like MSH does. This is our edge and what enables us to quickly spot and land top talent.

Frequently asked questions

Why do professional sports teams use recruiters in the first place?

Companies in the professional sports field typically hire headhunters and recruitment firms to help them save both time and money. With their specialized knowledge of the job market, sports industry, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) requirements, in addition to their established networks of quality candidates, an executive search firm like MSH can lock down top talent much faster than a sports team or club trying to go it alone.

Who partners with MSH?

Organizations who want to hire incredible people.

If this were a dating site, our "type" would be companies that are hungry to level up their team and truly optimize their business objectives. We partner with industry disruptors, dreamers, and innovators for both contingent workforce and full-time hires.

Whether you need singular opportunities, on-demand projects, or completely outsourced partnerships, MSH has your back.

How do I select the best sports recruitment firm to work with?

It’s crucial that the recruitment firm you choose to partner with is an industry leader who understands 1) your organization, 2) its hiring needs, and 3) the sports industry. MSH searches for and places candidates who will fit right in and want to stay for the long term.

Who will be my point of contact at MSH?

Your dedicated client account manager will screen all candidates, coordinate interviews, and help you make the best hiring decisions.

MSH integrates into your team and culture to understand your specific people needs. 

What is professional sports recruiting?

Professional sports recruiting is the process sports organizations and their recruitment partners follow to source, evaluate, and hire high-quality candidates to fill open positions. In the case of MSH, this involves the collaborative development of a customized hiring plan, delivery of a list of qualified sports executives in under 72 hours, and ultimately the successful hiring of candidates who completely fit the bill.

What are the terms of the partnership?

If one-size-fits-all, does it really fit anybody?

Then why would anyone take this approach to hiring?

We sure as hell don't.

MSH customizes each partnership and collaborates with you based on your uniqueneeds. You deserve to love the hires you make.

Nobody talks about high-quality candidates

There are very few processes where you touch this many people with the opportunity to create long lasting relationships.

We all want to work for companies that make us feel like we belong.

That is what high-quality means to me - it’s the opportunity to enter into relationships with people who have your best interest at heart and will support you as part of their team, even after just one day on board!
