Sportidealisten – The #1 sports jobs platform
Sportidealisten is a sports job platform in order to help you find your dream job in sports or find your dream candidate.
Furthermore, we provide sports jobs, ideas, inspiration and great lessons from the sports field.
We want you to feel empowered and ready for a successful career in the sports industry. As well as we empower and save sports clubs’ time to get more work done.
We believe that all sports bring a lot of engagement and emotions and that is why many of us want to work in sports.
Our vision is to have a world where everyone can work with their passion, sports.
Sportidealisten was founded with the mission to simplify the sports industry. We save sports clubs’ time with the daily operations as well as we connect future employees and employers in the sports industry to provide impactful matches between hiring managers and job seekers in sports. Our job is to find yours. We want to make it as easy as possible to find the dream job but also to save hiring organizations time when finding their next hire.
A word from our founder
It all started as a travel blog during my studies abroad, where I shared my experiences from Tasmania, Australia. However, I traveled a bit more and continued to share new travel experiences. Meanwhile, I already had a strong connection to sports, and thanks to my great passion for sports I knew that my future career would be within the sports field. Something that I always have had is a great interest in discovering new things, experiences, and learning something new every day. All together have led to new knowledge, skills, and networks and especially within what I am most passionate about, sports!
At Sportidealisten we know that finding a sports job isn’t as easy as many other jobs and there are few platforms where you can find sports jobs. It takes a lot of time to find the dream job in sports but also to find and recruit the best candidates. We want to change this. We want to make employment in sports easy, fun and allow more people to work with their passion.
This is where the problem started, so I decided to solve this problem. I had a vision that I wanted to provide a single platform for everyone who wants to work in the sports field. An easy way to find your dream job or an easy way to find the best candidates. Sounds great right?
This is not the only benefit at Sportidealisten. Today I know so much more about the sports sector and there are so many things happening within the field. And ever since the day after my time in Tasmania I have felt that there are great lessons to be taught from the sports sector and more people should be aware of them. Except for the sports job platform, Sportidealisten also provides education and blog posts with different perspectives in order to inspire you with ideas and knowledge for a successful career and sports organization in the sports field.

How to pronounce Sportidealisten (Sport + idealisten)
Sportidealisten is pronounced like “Sport-idea-list-n”. And the word “idealisten” is the Swedish word for the English word “the idealist”. This means you could be framed as a hopeless romanticist into something, and as for our story, we are hopeless romanticists into sports.
