Football is coming home, conferences are making a comeback and music is taking centre stage again. And at G4S we’re making sure we are more than ready for them - with a new approach to event security, stewarding and crowd control, designed for a very different world.
The last year has seen major and small events being cancelled or denied crowds due to the spread of coronavirus. At G4S we're getting ready to support the return of events and spectators this year!
We are looking to recruit Events Safety Stewards to join our team to support those events that are continuing in a safe, secure way in line with government guidelines but also in readiness for when the UK returns to normal and the events industry kicks off again! We have work across the sports and music industries, spanning the whole of the UK - so you will have the opportunity to be a part of the events you love.
Haydock and Leigh is a key location for G4S Events - not only could you be working at a Premier League Football Club, Rugby Club or a high profile cricket ground and events venue but you will also have an opportunity to be part of broader music and sporting events across the region. If you're open to travel we even have opportunities to be part of some of the biggest events across the UK.
You will need to be available of an evening and/or weekend, but the broader G4S Events business can also offer you opportunities to suit your lifestyle, whether it’s flexible ad hoc hours, or working 40+ hours a week, we have a wide range of shifts available.
Our Stewards provide a visible reminder that safety is our number one priority for visitors and staff. Which means you could be inside or outside, on your feet showing people where to go, checking tickets at entry, monitoring the crowd and managing the car parking facilities. Wherever you are, you’ll be the fun, helpful and friendly face representing the event.
As a Steward you will be responsible for securing the venues, staff and visitors for our customers. This may include:
Carrying out pre and post event safety checks ensuring compliance with safe working procedures
Greeting, assisting and directing visitors attending the event
Ensuring that no prohibited or restricted items are taken into the secured zones within the venues
Monitoring visitor / crowd movements and behaviour to identify potential issues or incidents and to take action as necessary
No experience is required as we'll give you all the training you need - applicants holding their Level 2 in Spectator Safety (or above) are preferred but not essential, however you must be willing to go through the funded training once on board.
If this sounds like something you want to be involved in, you will just need to complete the following application form and one of our Recruiters will be in touch to discuss the next steps. Our recruitment and selection process is currently being conducted remotely which will include a video interview.
Given the nature of the industry, we do need to ask some questions for security and compliance purposes, but don’t worry - you will only need to complete them once.
