New stewards required for match-days
By Mark Stevens
We want you to be part of the Exeter Chiefs team, helping to provide what we know is the best match-day experience in rugby.
With crowds of over 11,000 regularly packing into Sandy Park, so the demand on our facility and its personnel continues to grow each year – and that’s why we are looking for additional stewards to assist on match-days.
In what is sure to be another action-packed season at the home of the Chiefs, we need additional support to ensure we maintain the highest of standards for everyone visiting the stadium on match-days.
Deputy Chief Executive, Keiron Northcott, said: “Our gates have continued to increase in line with the stadium development and last season we had nine games with a crowd in excess of 12,000 fans. With match-day crowds rising year on year, so the demands of our stewards have also continued to increase.
“Gone are the days when we could ask them to steward for a cup of tea and a pasty. Now, all of our stewards get paid for their time on match-days, as well as gaining an official NVQ qualification. As always our number one priority here has to be the safety and comfort of all our supporters.”
Since being promoted into the Premiership back in 2010, the Chiefs have created an award-winning, match-day experience that is unrivalled not only in the top flight, but also across those the club face in European competition.
Keiron continued: “One of the main reasons for winning these awards has been because of the knowledge and helpfulness of our existing stewards and it is important that we maintain this moving forward."
If you are interested in applying to become one of the match-day stewards, please complete the attached application form and return to the reception at Sandy Park or e-mail it back directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
Anyone applying for a role is expected to be able to attend most of the Chiefs fixtures and must be 18 years or over to apply. The club also reserves the right to request written proof of age. You must also be able to demonstrate your eligibility to work in the UK. The club is an equal opportunities employer.
