Join The Team

By joining the team at London Sport, you’ll become part of a group of people who believe that physical activity and sport can change Londoners’ lives for the better. We work in all parts of London and on behalf of all Londoners to support them to live more active lives.

We’re constantly challenging the industry to think more creatively about the ways that it works for London – and we include ourselves in that challenge, too.

We believe in activity in the workplace too. Our office is part of the House of Sport, a three-storey co-working space that provides physical activity and sport organisations with a base to collaborate, network and learn from one another.

Along with our counterparts throughout the building, we are proud of a working culture that supports people to be active, whether that’s through early morning yoga classes or lunchtime runs.
