Manchester City stay with recruitment firm Hays
Manchester City, the defending champions of English soccer's Premier League, have renewed their global partnership with recruitment company Hays until 2023.
Hays came on board as the club's official recruitment partner in 2013, and the arrangement was extended in 2016.
Over the course of the partnership, Hays has expanded its relationship to the City Football Group, the company that owns Manchester City, becoming a partner of sister Major League Soccer team New York City FC in 2017, and most recently J. League outfit Yokohama F. Marinos.
The collaboration has involved Hays and City creating new digital content featuring both of their slogans, and the company being an official sponsor of the club's overseas tours.
Hays has helped CFG recruit for positions in finance, HR, marketing and other departments across its offices in Manchester, London, New York and Singapore.
Damian Willoughby, vice president of partnerships at CFG, said: “Our partnership with Hays continues to strengthen and we are proud that this has grown beyond our men’s team to incorporate our women’s team, as well as other clubs from the Group. We are delighted to extend our relationship into this next chapter that will see us mark ten years of this exciting partnership.”
Other Manchester City sponsors include Etihad Airways, Nike and Nissan.
