How do I know Sport England is an equal opportunities employer?

We actively promote diversity in both sport and employment.

We welcome applicants from all parts of the community. An interview will be guaranteed for people with disabilities who meet the job requirements and, where necessary, reasonable adjustments to work arrangements will be made.

To assist us in the monitoring of diversity, applicants are asked to complete our Diversity Questionnaire when applying for roles at Sport England. This form will be separate from your application form and will not be made available to the short-listing panel. 

If you require an application pack in an alternative format, or if you are finding it difficult to complete the online application process due to a disability, please contact 08458 508 508 and ask for the Human Resources team to obtain assistance.  

Does Sport England offer work experience or volunteer opportunities?
