Commitment to diversity

As an employer, we actively seek to ensure that our workforce reflects the communities we serve, recognising that this makes us better able to understand their needs and priorities

We can only do this by ensuring that the people who work for us are the best they can be irrespective of age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, marital status, religion or belief. 

What matters to us is that we have talented, enthusiastic and experienced professionals working with us who can help deliver our strategic outcomes. You don't have to be sporty to work at Sport England.

We value the ideas and contributions from everybody and welcome and support difference. Our aim is to make sure that equality, diversity and inclusion run through everything we do as an employer.

Our employer accreditations

We’re proud to have successfully been accredited Stage 2 for Investors in Diversity and Stage 3 for Leaders in Diversity. In addition, we are also a Stonewall Diversity Champion, a MINDFUL EMPLOYER and a Disability Confident employer.
