Lord’s looking to take on extra workers during Ashes and World Cup summer

Lord’s cricket ground is looking to hire 1,100 casual workers for a bumper summer which is going to include an Ashes Test against Australia and World Cup matches.

Caterers and stewards are needed at the historic home of cricket and potential recruits can find out more by attending a spring jobs fair on Wednesday May 1 (12-3pm), organised by Westminster City Council.

Guy Lavender, chief executive of the ground’s owners, Marylebone Cricket Club, said: “This summer there is a great opportunity for the people of Westminster to work at Lord’s during one of the most exciting years of cricket.

We are looking for friendly, approachable and hard-working people to join our team to help deliver an outstanding experience to all of our visitors.

There are a variety of roles to apply for, all of which will provide excellent work experience for anyone who may be applying for their first job or someone returning to work.”

Marylebone Cricket Club will join 30 other employers looking to hire at the job fair at the Landsec offices, 80, Victoria Street, central London.

The employment sectors represented will include construction, hospitality, retail, and security. The companies hiring include street cleaning firm Veolia, British Transport Police, Sir Robert McAlpine, Axis Europe, Securitas, Morgan Sindall, Hawes & Curtis, Metro Bank, Body Worlds, Firmdale Hotels, Travelodge and Westminster City Council.

Supporting partners include Jobcentre Plus; United Colleges Group (including the City of Westminster College); and the Heart of London Business Alliance. Partners will offer relevant support and advice to job seekers at the event.

Councillor David Harvey said: “At the first ever Westminster job fair, held in October, we had more than 350 job seekers attend.

These events form part of Westminster City Council’s commitment to creating better job opportunities and tackling in-work poverty and will support delivery of the council’s vision to create a city of opportunity for its residents.”
