Who We Are
We Are Somerset! Somerset County Cricket Club: one of the most successful first-class county cricket clubs of the past 10 years. Deeply rooted in our community since 1875, with a rich reputation for developing talent from across the region. Yet our vision stretches far beyond the local: we have global reach, with circa 900,000 social media followers from around the world and bold ambitions for success on the international field.
Our enviable facilities at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, compliment the outstanding commercial opportunities our sporting profile presents. We are a 365-day venue: alongside hosting 50 days of cricket each year, we deliver numerous non-cricket related events, conferences, concerts and weddings, to name a few, with the determination to make our ground the primary sporting and business destination in the south-west.
We’re entering an exciting time at SCCC – the Covid-19 pandemic has required us to review our strategy and develop future plans to take the Club to new heights on and off the field. We are in a strong position to grow and achieve our ambitious goals which have ‘cricket at the heart and business on the mind’.
We are looking for people with stewarding and customer service experience to assist in managing the safe operations at our fixtures and events. Your priority is to ensure the safety and security of all attendees at the ground and provide top-class customer service to enable our members, customers, clients, partners and guests to have consistently enjoyable and memorable experiences with the Club.
As a representative of the Club, you’ll be professional, yet approachable at all times. You’ll be able to communicate effectively with people from diverse backgrounds and uphold the Club’s standards on equity, diversity and inclusion, ensuring our policy is followed at all times.
You will be confident and competent in emergency situations and have some experience in conflict management and resolution whilst remaining calm.
Teamwork is essential in this role. You will place importance on working collectively with your direct team, as well as with the wider Club network of colleagues. You are punctual, follow instruction promptly and have a positive, proactive attitude.
You’ll preferably hold a Spectator Safety qualification, and are willing to undergo further relevant training with the Club.
You will usually be based at Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, but may be required to work at other sites when necessary.
