Today we announce the Top 10 Governing Bodies, the latest shortlist from The Most Attractive Employers in Sport 2023 Survey.
Football, as has been the case across a number of the Top 10 shortlists, has a heavy presence on the list. FIFA, the international governing body of football and one of the most recognized organizations on the planet makes an appearance. It is joined by continental football governing bodies CONCACAF in North and Central America, CONMEBOL in South America and UEFA in Europe. Additionally, national football governing bodies RFEF in Spain and The FA in England are on the list. The International Olympic Committee (IOC), which sits at the top of the Olympic Movement hierarchy, also is on the list. Rounding out the Top 10 are international governing bodies FIA (Motorsport), FIBA (Basketball) and the ITF (Tennis).
The list is the result of a study conducted by iWorkinSport, which surveyed more than 1,500 people from all continents, with the majority already working in sport, and asked them a simple question: “If you could choose to work anywhere in sport, where would that be?”
At first, the respondents chose organisations divided into ten categories and, at the end, they indicated one single preferred choice, overall – the “Employer of their Dreams”.
The final rankings of the iWorkinSport Most Attractive Employers 2023 will be announced at an Awards ceremony at the Olympic Museum, in Lausanne, on June 1st, at a VIP dinner offered to recruiters and academic partners of the iWorkinSport Job Fair, which will take place the following day in Lausanne.
In the category Governing Bodies, the 10 most voted organizations were, in alphabetical order:
CONCACAF (Football, North and Central America)
CONMBEOL (Football, South America)
FIA (Motor Sports)
IOC (Olympics, Global)
RFEF (Football, ESP)
