The LAPS Placement Service

Today, we’re launching the LAPS Placement Service. From this week, you’re able to partner up with us and access our gifted, driven and motivated pool of athletic talent to find an amazing new employee for your business.

Professional athletes make great employees for all sorts of reasons. Now, you can team up with us to see if your next incredible teammate is waiting for you in our membership. We’re helping athletes and businesses come together to fill full-time, part-time and work experience roles.

Our co-founder Rob Steed says,

We formed LAPS because I knew that successful businesses understood the value in having professional athletes in their team.  I believe that our new placement service gives us the best opportunity to ensure that we match the right athletes with the right businesses, which is especially important at the moment with organisations looking for ways to separate themselves from the competition.

While you can still interact with us in all the usual ways, this is a more active approach to finding a new player for your team. We’ll use our connections to the world of professional sport to handpick candidates for you who are motivated to find a new career.

Co-founder Robbie Simpson has this to say:

I’m so pleased to get this Placement Service in action for LAPS members. It’s been a while since we first mentioned we’d like to add it to our offering but now undoubtedly is a perfect and an important time to be launching it.
We’ve added 3 new members to the LAPS team in Holly, James and Kieran to help with this new initiative. We’re delighted to be able to grow our team and offer LAPS Members another way to tackle life after professional sport.

If you’re an existing member then make sure your details are up to date so that the right opportunities find you! Go to My LAPS and check that everything’s in order. If you’re open to a new opportunity and we have a partner that’s right for you, we’ll be in touch.

If you’re a business and want to directly recruit an athlete for your company, get in touch right now.
