Nielsen Sports, the global leader in delivering tailored commercial solutions, as well as analytics, to teams, leagues, federations, brands, broadcasters and agencies, is the latest high-profile addition to the 2nd edition of the iWorkinSport Job Fair.

The company’s brand exposure data and metrics are considered currency in the global sports marketplace. Coupled with its sponsorship data and Nielsen’s buyer intent and purchase data, it provides more than 1,700 clients with uniquely powerful and integrated solutions to help them make smarter business decisions.

Nielsen Sports’ Talent Acquisition team will be joining an exceptional list of organisations recruiting at the event, such as International Olympic Committee (IOC), FIFA, UEFA, adidas, Infront, Soccerex, Sportcal, mycujoo and others.

Daniela Kirchberg, HR Business Partner DACH, Nielsen Sports, said: “As the global leader in sports measurement, analytics and insights, we are constantly searching for new talent to support our great teams. iWorkinSport Job Fair is a perfect opportunity to meet new candidates with international backgrounds and a passion for sport. We are also looking forward to expanding our network.”


The iWorkinSport Job Fair debuted last year as the first international career fair focused on the sports industry, enabling some of the most renowned organisations in the marketplace to meet, interview and recruit students and alumni from the most prestigious sports management courses in Europe. The 2nd edition will take place once again at the SwissTech Convention Center, in Lausanne, Switzerland, on 18 May.

iWorkinSport is more than just a recruitment platform!

The career fair is the perfect place for recruiters and HR professionals to exchange knowledge and promote “what it’s like to work at their companies” to a qualified audience. As an important addition to this year’s programme, the recruiters from various companies will now be invited to take part in a special Recruiters Workshop & Networking Session, on the evening of the 17th May, which will be followed by a dinner with the representatives of the Academic Partners.

All Academic Partners that participated in the inaugural job fair – CIES’ The FIFA Master, AISTS, the Johan Cruyff Institute, the University of Liverpool’s Football MBA, and the EU Business School – approved the event and have signed up to return, and others will join.

The Recruiters’ feedback was also extremely positive:

• 100% of the Recruiters rated the event either Excellent or Good;
•  50% said that it exceeded their expectations, while the other 50% said it met their expectations;
•  Over a dozen candidates were hired as a result of their attendance at the event.
