About S&C Slatter

Over three decades S&C Slatter has built a market leading position, and enviable reputation, for the design, construction, and maintenance of first-class sports facilities. Our clients range from grass roots clubs to world famous institutions and global icons of sport including Eton College, Cambridge University, Coventry Rugby Football Club, Marylebone Cricket Club, and Everton Football Club.

We were the world’s first contractor to be awarded FIH Certified Field Builder status by the International Hockey Federation and are one of just five construction partners approved by the Football Association AGP Framework. We build Rugby Football Union Certified artificial grass pitches and were the first company to construct a Major League Baseball field in Europe.

Our expertise extends to multi-use games areas (MUGAs), tennis and netball courts, changing and spectator facilities, access roads, car parks, and landscaping.

Last year we signed an exclusive partnership to bring North America’s leading athletic track surface to the UK market and developed a unique finance proposition to help clients fund new facilities.

From design and planning to funding and construction, we provide an unrivalled turnkey solution for leisure centres, sports clubs, schools, universities, stadia, and elite sports teams.

Throughout the pandemic we have continued to grow our core areas of business and have fully succeeded in executing strategic moves into new areas of operation. As a result, we seek an experienced sports Contracts Manager to join our busy team – someone who shares our energy, professionalism, and desire to get the country playing sport!
