Volunteers Required at Blackwell Meadows
Click here for full story...
The move to Blackwell Meadows has meant that we need additional stewards to comply with safety regulations. At the moment the Club are paying an external security company to supply the necessary additional staff, which is an obvious drain on finances. Therefore Darlington Football Club is looking to recruit additional volunteer stewards. The priority is for stewards to work the car park before and after the game; the roles are to guide drivers into their spaces before the match and to help the queues dissipate efficiently after the final whistle. No qualifications are necessary for these roles and you will still be able to watch the full game because the car park closes 30 minutes before kick-off and doesn’t re-open until 15 minutes afterwards.
The Football Club needs 4 additional stewards to cover the car park before the game and 4 for afterwards. Ideally they could be the same people but if you could only spare time either before or afterwards, that’s fine – we would still like to hear from you. If we receive sufficient interest there will be scope to operate a rota.
This is also an ideal opportunity for anyone that needs some volunteer experience on their CV.
As volunteers you wouldn’t receive payment. However, you would be able to park your car and have free entry to the match as well as a hot drink. Also, if you don’t have access to a car, we could arrange a lift back to your area of the town after the match.
In addition, the Club is looking for SIA licensed door persons for duties within the clubhouse.
