At ACT, diversity, inclusion and belonging aren't simply discussion points, they are the foundation of our business.
In 2011 we set out to break down the barriers of inequality, supporting elite athletes with little or no previous corporate work experience to transition and flourish in roles from which they would usually be rejected at the first hurdle.
Hundreds of success stories later, we've watched our employer partners reap the benefits of hiring elite, diverse talent, from a range of backgrounds, sporting disciplines and educational levels.
Our mission is simple; "Empower Athletes, Enhance Businesses". And through unique search and selection techniques, we achieve exactly that.

We have supported over 250 athletes transition from sport to work placements in some of the world's biggest organisations.
What makes our talent program unique? We don't hire to tick diversity boxes, we hire distinct high-performers from the world of sport who bring with them a wealth of real-world experience, coupled with a diverse skillset, exceptional background and winning mindset.
diversity of leadership
diversity of thought
diversity of talent
Over 43% of all athletes placed were from Black, Asian or Minority Groups
96% of our athletes remain in position for at least 18 months after being placed
We align our recruitment efforts with your corporate requirements. Diversity in the workplace stems down to far more than ability, gender and race, it allows for a greater awareness of cultural influence, a multifaceted viewpoint on key challenges and a conclusive range of leadership abilities to provide a competitive edge.
What's more, our stats on diversity and inclusion in the workplace speak for themselves.

the warrior queen
this is nzingha's story
Named after a 17th century Angolan warrior queen, American female foil fencer and bronze medallist, Nzingha Prescod, has been demonstrating to the world that success both in sports and business, is not defined nor limited by background, gender or race. Spoken like a modern-day warrior, during the opening shots of a short documentary made by the National Geographic in 2016, Nzingha states "I don't like to fight people; but you can't get by without fighting."
