Newcastle United are currently advertising a full-time "Ticketing Assistant" vacancy on their careers page, offering a competitive salary, employee bonus scheme, free city centre parking, and more in return.

Here's all of the information about the job, including the day-to-day responsibilities, candidate requirements, and everything someone would need to know before applying.

A great opportunity to work at the stadium

The role, which is a full-time position for 35 hours per week plus all home matchdays, is intended for an enthusiastic and talented individual to support the club's Ticketing operation.

In terms of requirements for applying, the club are looking to hire someone with customer service experience, who has strong communication skills, and who is confident using Microsoft Word and Excel.

While prior experience using CRM (customer relationship management) software or a ticketing system is desirable, it is not seen as being a deal-breaker as long as a candidate is willing to learn the ropes.

A flexible approach to working is required

If you're confident and assertive, have strong interpersonal skills, and are good at using your initiative to solve any problems that may come up, it might just be the opportunity for you. Ideally, you'd also be an effective time manager and good at prioritising.

Weekend and evening availability is essential given the club's fixture schedule, so this isn't a good fit for someone who cannot be flexible with their hours.

Newcastle are only taking applications for the role until Monday 16th October and may close the listing early if they receive a high volume of qualified candidates.

Everything you need to know before applying

If you like the sound of the opportunity and are looking for work, take a look at a PDF of the full job description on the NUFC careers site.

If you're still sold after reading that, here's the job application form and self-declaration form you need to complete your application. Make sure to clearly outline how you meet the criteria in the job description on your application form!

Once you're done with those, they need to be sent to [email protected].

And just for completeness' sake, here's the rest of the spiel from the listing:

Please email [email protected] if you require any of these forms in paper format, or you require any support completing them.

It is important to the Club that our workforce reflects the communities that we serve by identifying barriers and ensuring that we have an inclusive approach to recruitment. By completing this monitoring typeform will help us achieve this and also help us meet our obligations under the Equality Act 2010.
