Lord's Match Day Control Room Officer

Closing date:
08 December 2018

Closing date for applications: 07/12/18

Marylebone Cricket Club is looking for Match Day Control Room Operators for the 2019 season and beyond. As part of the Lord’s Control Room Team you will report directly to the Control Room Manager and will be under the instruction of the Safety Officer.

The chosen applicant/s will be tasked to operate all elements of the Control Room including radio transmissions, incident logging and operating CCTV and critical life-safety systems. Candidates should demonstrate the ability to work in a pressurised environment, have a good working knowledge of MS Office packages such as Word and Excel, and hold a wide variety of experiences related to similar environments/venues.

If your application is deemed suitable, you will be invited to attend Lord’s for an informal interview.

If you are successful with your application, you will be required to attend a day long training session where you will be taught the standard operating procedures for the room and how the operating systems work. A number of relevant match day scenarios will also be worked through during this training programme. Control Room experience, although desirable, is not essential.

This is an exciting opportunity for anyone wishing to extend or round off their existing experience at working in stadia or events. We are looking for candidates that are positive, show an eagerness to learn and those who can work under-pressure and take instruction.

How to apply:

Please send a CV and covering letter (no longer than 1 side of A4) outlining the following:

-          Why do you want this opportunity?

-          What relevant experience do you have?

-          Why you are the right candidate for this role?
