is a consciously inclusive talent acquisition solution for sports organisations to ensure fairness in hiring processes, to increase diversity and inclusion in leadership and senior roles.

why Sports Recruitment?

as a deaf man without a CV in 1985, founder Francis Kelly's Dad applied & was successful in securing a role at the AELTC (Wimbledon Tennis). Having worked there for over 20 years, he is a prime example that your background, disability and struggles in life should not get in the way of your aspirations and goals. level= was founded out of a passion to ensure that those applying for a job in any sporting organisation are chosen on a fair and level playing field by pushing back against conventional hiring that perpetuates systemic biases.
