Under the terms of the agreement, GlobalSportsJobs will provide Alisports – owned by Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba – with a range of digital talent acquisition solutions, including the rights to advertise career opportunities across its multi-language platforms.

The partnership will also see GlobalSportsJobs help Alisports develop its international corporate branding with a varied range of content designed at educating and inspiring professionals who are looking further their careers in sport or make a transition into the industry from outside.

Commenting on the partnership, GlobalSportsJobs Executive Chairman Karl Oliver explained “Alisports has recognised that GlobalSportsJobs is the ideal platform to work with in furthering its digital talent acquisition program.

“We are very proud to partner with Alisports and look forward to building on our strong relationship with them in what are exciting times for the development of the sports industry in China.”

Alisports Vice President Helen Lu added “there is huge opportunity in China’s sports market.

“Alisports aims to boost the sports industry and benefit more partners and consumers by creating a base platform through big data in the ecosystem of Alibaba.

“We are glad to partner with GlobalSportsJobs and wish to experience great success in a market that is undergoing rapid growth.”
