Gilmore, Sarah, Wagstaff, Christopher and Smith, John 2018. Sports Psychology in the English Premier League: ‘It Feels Precarious and is Precarious’. Work, Employment and Society 32 (2) , p. 426. 10.1177/0950017017713933

Abstract

This article gives a rare account of the working life of a sports psychologist in the English Premier League, the elite division in English professional football. It shows how members of emerging professions such as sports psychology are a new precariat. John is more successful than many sports psychologists, but his job security is dependent on his continued ability to navigate managerial change: using his skills as a psychologist in the defence of his own employment but simultaneously keeping the (potentially sensitive) ‘psychology’ label of the work he does hidden until circumstances are propitious.
