Identify, engage and recruit future business leaders
As a recruitment professional, you’re well aware of the need to attract quality graduate talent to maximise the chances of your company’s future success.
However, did you know the huge role that university sport plays in grooming successful leaders? Over 90% of CEOs played sport during higher education (Fortune 500 survey). In addition, 52% of female business leaders played sport at university (EY).
