This study presents data from the Erasmus Life Long Learning Program “Employability of Graduates of Sport” (EGS). EGS aims at establishing a Europe wide Employers/Sport related Higher Education Institutions network, to promote good practice in employability programs. As part of the Needs Analysis action of the project, a survey of employers and sport graduates was performed. Employers (n = 347) and Sport Graduates (n = 2047) from 6 countries (UK, France, Germany, Greece, Spain and Czech Republic) rated: a. the importance and b. the perceived possession of 20 specific attributes and skills related to employability. This study presents data from the Greek sub‐samples as well as a comparison between the results from Greece and those from all countries. Regarding Greece, there were large differences between Graduates and Employers perception of the possession of skills and attributes, with Employers denoting that Graduates possess the skills to a much lower extent that the Graduates perceived. Also, Greek Employers perceived that Graduates possessed the skills and characteristics to a lower extent than Employers from the other countries.
