Information for Clubs

Inside Running Service

Inside Running Recruitment provides three key service areas to its client Clubs around the world:

1. Foreign Player Recruitment. We are widely recognised as the market leader in this area. Managed from our New Zealand office, we source Players from within our major markets for placement with Clubs anywhere in the world seeking foreign Players to add value.

2. Local Player Recruitment. We provide local Player recruitment services to Clubs in New Zealand, Australia, France, the United Kingdom/Ireland and the Netherlands/Germany/Belgium/Switzerland through our representatives on the ground within these markets. This is an area of real growth and opportunity for our business and our client Clubs.

3. Club Consultancy. We provide consultancy services to Clubs in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom/Ireland and the Netherlands/Germany/Belgium through our representatives on the ground within these markets. This includes advice on Player recruitment and retention strategies, Player development and sponsorship planning. Please enquire with your local Inside Running representative for more information.

Our Points of Difference

What makes us different to other agents?

1. We provide a comprehensive service. Our Club services include:

  1. Regular updates of new available Players for Clubs to view.
  2. Assurance over a Players ability and statistics through our reference-check process.
  3. Assistance with drafting contracts.
  4. Player departure preparation - including visas, flights, IRB clearance, etc.
  5. Open communication. We have a company-wide policy that all communication must be responded to within two working days.

2. Agents in key markets. We have agents based in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, France and Switzerland, as well as part-time agents based in key European markets. This provides a high level of security for our clients and ensures the arrangement runs as smoothly as possible.

3. We focus on the 'right fit'. We understand the comparable level of rugby around the world. We understand the ability of our Players and the level of our Clubs and we take into consideration their objectives behind recruiting Players.

4. Fees. Unlike many of our competitors, our fees are payable upon Player arrival, not in advance. Our fees are competitive and reflect our service.

5. Our Guarantee. We give Clubs a six week period to assess a Player after his arrival. Should the Player not be up to first team standard, our fees are either refunded or credited to the Club. The Club must notify us of this during the six week probationary period.
