Commitment to our people

Commitment to our people

The EIS aims to foster a culture of continuous learning and professional development.

We are improving the systems we have in place to collect, share and disseminate leading-edge thinking and practice across all areas of expertise. This ensures practitioners have access to the latest developments in sport science and sport medicine both in their own area of expertise and those with cross-disciplinary applications.

Our employees are also given opportunities to attend and speak at conferences and events around the world and develop relations with globally-renowned experts. This culture of personal development combined with a rigorous focus on professional advancement brings huge benefits to the athletes and coaches we work with and provides them with ongoing access to practitioners that are continually developing their capabilities and increasing their level of expertise they are able to provide to sports and National Governing Bodies (NGB’s).

View the video below where EIS Director of Science and Technical Development Kevin Currell speaks about the importance of developing practitioners and continually improving the people who work inside the organisation.

Inclusive culture:

We are proud to have an inclusive culture at the EIS, one where we embrace people from all diverse backgrounds.

We are on a journey and our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Action plan sets out key actions for us to deliver, but our real strength is in working together every day in inclusive teams in the EIS and with our partners in Sports, benefiting from everyone’s wide and unique talents and perspectives. We know that as an organisation we are better for having the broadest perspectives and thinking that comes with having a truly diverse team.

We encourage applications for vacancies from applicants of all backgrounds and we have strong flexible working practises which can help to support people wanting to join our team at the EIS.

A number of critical policies, including our annual gender pay gap report, can be found on our Diversity and Inclusion page.
