Jo Simpson, Commercial Director, Loughborough Sport

We partnered with the Loughborough Lightning cycling team for many reasons, the main being that their ethos to provide the very best education and professional athletic options to their students and riders has a huge amount of synergy with The Recruitment Group’s mission ‘to put people first’. “Loughborough are the only university to offer this level of competition whilst allowing students to obtain a degree, and we loved that they are doing this and putting their athletes and students prospects first – both on and off the track. We’re looking forward to a deeply integrated partnership where we can utilise Loughborough’s performance expertise to support our employees to be the best they can be. From optimised nutrition and sleep strategies for our teams to national brand coverage through the University’s network and events, we’re incredibly excited to be working with the team from Loughborough Sport
