Do you want to be part of a unique, fun team?
Join the Yorkies for 2020 and become part of the Match Day Support Team!
What do our Yorkies do?
Our Yorkies provide an amazing match day experience to spectators by offering help and assisting on services within and outside of the grounds.
Why do we have a match day volunteer programme?
We would like as many people from every background regularly and meaningfully taking part in sport, volunteering and experiencing live sport.
Why should you volunteer with the YCF?
Connect – Be part of a team.
Be Active – Do what you can, enjoy what you do.
Take Notice – Simple things can give you joy.
Keep Learning – See opportunities, challenge yourself and learn from others.
Give – Your time for others and yourself.
What is expected of the Yorkies team?
Yorkies are expected to attend a compulsory training session which will include information and practical experience on each role, a chance to meet the team, and provide an opportunity to ask any questions about your role as a Yorkie.
Depending on the given role, Yorkies are asked to attend briefing 30 minutes before the gates open, be on duty in time for gates opening and finish duties normally 30 minutes after the start of play.
Roles may include assisting on transport systems, welcoming people into the grounds, distributing freebies, helping on ticket collections, working the trivision board, helping in the YCCC shops and any other roles depending on the fixture that we feel could enhance the match day experience.
What do you get in return?
Yorkies are provided with a uniform to wear whilst on duty.
Yorkies get to be part of the match day experience at Emerald Headingley, Scarborough and York and to be part of a unique team!
How do you apply?
Contact Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org who will send you an application form.
For 2020 we will have a new application process whereby we ask you to complete a few questions highlighting any previous experience, skills or qualifications that would make you the perfect Yorkie. What we really want to know is, “what does ‘volunteering’ mean to you?”. We also ask you to select the fixtures you are able to make across the season.
Once you have submitted your application, you may be contacted by Beth who may have more questions based on your application and will then be notified if you have made the team.
