The sports and media sector is probably the most rapidly changing sector in any economy. There are frequent changes in management positions and nearly every senior executive works for several employers during their career. In most cases, a recruitment consultant can help to ensure optimum opportunities for both parties in the event of a change.

Our core expertise

We specialise in bringing together leading sports and media companies with proven top performers and high potentials. Our success is based on many years of experience as recruitment consultants combined with outstanding sectoral knowledge. After all, our consultants have themselves held leading positions in associations, marketing companies and the media.

Above all, however, we are convinced that the sports and media sector needs to connect more closely with the rest of the economy in order to exploit professional potential, particularly on the management side. As recruitment consultants, we see ourselves as bridge builders between the two worlds and “matchmakers” who are focused on achieving the optimum result.

Our experience

Centurion has been in business since 1990. We have many years of experience in successfully recruiting and placing candidates, proof that we can not only align vacancies and qualifications but that we can also assess the personal aspects correctly. After all, being able to judge whether certain personalities will work well together is often the greatest challenge with a recruitment or placement project.

Our commitment

We offer both our corporate clients and our candidates a professional service with a personal touch. A collaborative approach, conscientiousness, integrity, confidentiality and loyalty are at the heart of everything we do – you can rely on that.

Our services

We advise sports and media companies that want to fill leadership roles and top performers who are looking for a new role. We take pride in our professional service, delivered with a personal touch.
