Sport Structures Limited was formed by Simon Kirkland and incorporated on the 23rd of July 2002 with the aim of providing high quality, cost effective consultancy, management and administration services to sports organisations.
Our values are based on Simon’s experience of working with other consultancy companies as a client. He felt that many provided services to suit the timescales of the consultant and not always the requirements of the client, as well as a feeling that quality service values and standards were not always adhered to.
The company has evolved considerably since its evolution, increasing the range of products and services on offer with new business areas emerging thanks to the considerable knowledge and experience within the senior team. The company is underpinned by a strong graduate training and development approach.
Our values are very important to us and shape and drive the work that we do at all times. As a whole staff, we review these regularly to ensure they continue to define who we are as a company. Our values are:
- Provide value for money
- Exceed expectations
- Source solutions
- Show respect
- Embrace diversity
- Be adaptable
- Reflect and improve
