Manchester City Football Club is delighted to announce a new partnership with Hays, the world’s leading recruiting experts in qualified, professional and skilled people. The three-year deal will see the British FTSE 250 company become the Club’s Official Recruitment Partner.
Hays has more than 50 years' experience in helping organisations and businesses fill permanent positions, contract roles and temporary assignments, across the private and public sectors. As the world’s largest specialist recruitment agency, last year alone Hays helped around a quarter of a million professional people worldwide find their next career role. With nearly 8,000 staff operating from 245 offices across 33 countries, Hays is a market leader in the UK, Continental Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and has a growing presence in North America.
Commenting on Hays becoming City's Official Recruitment Partner, Tom Glick, Chief Commercial & Operating Officer for Manchester City Football Club, said:
“It’s a privilege to welcome Hays on board as a valued member of our stable of global partners. Hays has established themselves as a truly international brand, with a wealth of experience attracting the best talent and expertise in the workplace.
“Manchester City has always been a Club built on people. We pride ourselves on continually developing the very best team of professionals across our organisation. Whether it’s international and home-grown talent on the pitch, or our friendly and professional match-day stewards off it, we strive to ensure we have the right people to drive the Club forward.”
This sentiment was shared by Sholto Douglas-Home, Hays Group Marketing Director, who added:
“Manchester City is the ideal partner for Hays. They are a brand that is passionate about getting the right professionals to build winning teams both on and off the pitch. Like Hays, they have a strong appreciation of the critical importance of finding and nurturing talent for success and they pride themselves on identifying and attracting those highly skilled individuals from the global talent pool.
“The English Premier League is by far the most popular league in the world and we see this partnership as an exciting platform to help us take our brand and our message to a broader global audience.”
Under the deal, Hays will be activating its partnership through a global marketing programme using City’s crest, player imagery and powerful brand messaging with a focus on digital and social media platforms, as well as match-day LED advertising and media interview backdrops. They will also be ensuring their 8,000 global employees can experience the City partnership with extensive engagement and incentive programmes.
