Glasgow Warriors ends ‘Search’ for latest partner
Recruitment specialist Search Consultancy has signed an agreement to become the latest partner of Glasgow Warriors.
The one-year deal will see Search’s logos displayed on the stadium hoardings at Scotstoun and on the club’s official website and the recruiter will also have a presence within the matchday magazine.
The company, which is Glasgow-headquartered and operates from 13 locations across the UK, is proud to be an official partner of the only professional rugby club in the West of Scotland.
Simone Lockhart, Search’s MD for Scotland, said: “Search works across a range of sectors and is committed to encouraging people to realise their potential and be the best they can be.
“Linking with a club like Glasgow Warriors, which is at the top of its game and is based in the city in which we are headquartered, is the perfect link-up.
“It is the second high-profile sports-related partnership for Search in recent years, with Search acting as the official recruitment consultancy to Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.”
Glasgow Warriors’ profile has never been higher – the team are the GUINNESS PRO12 Champions and have won the Melrose Sevens for the last two consecutive years.
The club have 16 players in the Scotland squad for the Rugby World Cup and a further four players representing other countries, while there were 23 Glasgow players in the Scotland squad for the 2015 RBS 6 Nations.
Glasgow Warriors managing director Nathan Bombrys added: “We’d like to welcome Search into our sponsor family and we look forward to working closely with them next season, to help them use this partnership to achieve their business objectives.
“Search will also be using their experience from Glasgow 2014 to connect our players to business leaders and experiences that will help them learn and develop outside of rugby.
“With the experience Search has in sports sponsorship, having been heavily involved in the Commonwealth Games last year, combined with the ambitious plans they have to promote their brand through the Warriors, we believe they will be an excellent addition to our family.”
When Search was linked with Glasgow 2014 it developed the pioneering ACE (Athlete Career Enhancement) programme aimed at helping professional athletes make the transition from top-flight sportsmen and women to successful long term careers. The programme helped bridge the often difficult gap between sporting and mainstream careers, and saw 14 athletes matched with work placement opportunities.
Following its latest link-up with Glasgow Warriors the company has reiterated its commitment to providing development and career enhancement opportunities for sportsmen and women.
