One of the biggest sporting events of the year is now a little over ten weeks away and you could get paid for the privilege of being there!!!
Aintree Racecourse are in need of around 300 events stewards who will be tasked with welcoming visitors on Grand National day as well as looking after them while they are at the event and ensuring their safety as they leave.
It is expected that over 150,000 punters will attend the famous racecourse throughout the duration of the three-day festival which takes place between April 2nd and April 4th.
Security firm G4S posted a job advert which read: “”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 of sporting history.
“You’ll receive full training and have the support of a great delivery team that will work closely with you. You’ll need to be over 18 years old, energetic, outgoing and a great communicator. Friendly and approachable, you’ll use common sense to help people and ensure the day runs smoothly.”
All applicants will be invited to attend local recruitment days where they will be asked some screening questions which are required by law. The security firm stated that all successful applicants would be fully eligible to be considered for similar stewarding roles at other major events in the future.
The hourly rate for stewarding at the 2020 Randox Health Grand National is £9 per hour.
