EASM Employability & Entrepreneurship Working Group


The EASM Employability and Entrepreneurship Working Group aims to develop employability, enterprise and entrepreneurship frameworks to assist the career development of future and existing sports managers (paid and voluntary)  across Europe by supporting EASM members and the EASM board with the creation of relevant resources and dissemination of best practice, including;


  • Establishing a common language for developing employability and entrepreneurship;
  • The monitoring of the sport management labour market trends in Europe.
  • Identifying employment and career structures within the sport industry across Europe;
  • Involving employers in discussing sport management curricula and research agendas;
  • Working with professional support services (e.g. careers) to enhance curricular delivery;
  • Enterprise and entrepreneurship education;
  • Career development learning;
  • Work Based Learning (e.g. Placements/internships);
  • Work Related Learning (e.g. simulations, field study, insight visits);
  • Curricular, co-curricular and extracurricular innovation.


This working group will prioritise increasing employer engagement in EASM activities, including the integration of employers within the EASM conference. Appropriate parallel themes will be explored focused on the employers’ perspective and knowledge exchange.
