Work With Us

Working At Play Sports Network

Part of the multinational and US-owned Discovery Inc Group, Play Sports Network has a lot to offer people. We are based in the beautiful city of Bath in modern offices with air conditioning, showers, bike parking, free teas, coffee machines, fresh fruit and a variety of other benefits.
We have firm investments to develop our business, are financially robust and are growing quickly. We operate globally and wish to attract multilingual speakers to some roles. You can read more About Us here.
Our culture is key: if you are passionate about cycling, triathlon, running or an active outdoor lifestyle, you’ll fit right in. However, a love of sport and cycling in particular is not essential. Our people tell us that they love working here, that their colleagues are fantastic, friendly and they have the opportunity to run or cycle together at lunchtime or out of work. Some colleagues cycle to work and it’s fine to dress informally. Employees say that our management team are approachable; managers at all levels sit out of offices alongside their teams. This provides a collaborative, inclusive and informal environment which we believe encourages creativity, communication, upwards feedback and respect for everyone’s suggestions, regardless of their position, background or length of service.
We use ‘Workplace’ to keep each other updated on business activities as well as regular floor meetings and bi-annual company get-togethers to review results and discuss corporate objectives. In addition to channels dedicated to the cycling and tri-sports industries, we also provide sports specific, casual clothing and accessories in our shops.

We offer a range of benefits, including:

    • 25 days holiday per annum, bank holidays + additional closure week over Christmas
    • Scottish Widows pension plan
    • Modern, air conditioned, open plan offices in Bath city centre
    • Free access to the GCN+ App and Race Pass
    • Welcome GCN/ GMBN clothing gifts
    • Up to 50% discount in GCN, GMBN, EMBN and GTN shops 
    • Summer bike rides during office hours
    • Free birthday pizza
    • Free pre-payday lunches
    • Festive party and events

We're unique, we are all unique.

Our aim is to attract the best possible talent to our business.

We want to attract fans from a wide range of diverse backgrounds with one common theme, a passion for cycling. To do that, we recognise that we not only need the best possible talent, we need that talent to be representative of the vision of our audience. That's why we welcome people from all backgrounds - your ability, motivation and passion is what matters to us.

If you wish to apply for one of our roles and want to apply anonymously no problem, put "anon" in the name fields of your application, remove your personal details from your CV if you like. We will give every applicant exactly the same consideration.

We are proud of our open, friendly and inclusive culture and look forward to hearing about why you have the talent and motivation to join us.

If you’re sat at your desk wondering if there’s more to life at work, there really is. Take a look at our vacancies and drop us your CV and a note to tell us about you and what you can offer.
