Athletics Event Assistant

Position Description: 

If you love sports or are interested in sports/events management this is the right job for you. Events Assistants will set-up and manage home athletics contests while assisting with in-game operations and promotional activities. Duties will rotate week to week but this includes event set-up and breakdown, football chain crew, volleyball line judges, ticket sales, gate management, concessions management, VIP attendant, MountainBeer Zone Cashier, and additional duties as assigned at all home athletic events.

Most of our events are on nights and weekends (Thurs-Sunday). We work to maintain flexibility in scheduling, but require consistency and dedication. It's a fun atmosphere and the staff is usually large enough that no one person is doing all of the work. Our Event Assistants are integral to the operation of our home events and department.  I will hire reliable people who are committed to working most of the events throughout the year.  I understand that there will be some weekends and nights you will not be able to work, but if you can’t commit to most nights and weekends that we have home events please don’t apply.

Position Qualifications: 

Must qualify for federal or state work-study and be a consistent and reliable individual. Must be able and willing to work nights and weekends. The successful candidate will be one who has a "team" mentality, meaning they are willing to take on new or different roles in order to support the larger workings of the office, the athletic department, and Western Colorado University.

Application Instructions: 

Please email Loren Ahonen at your resume with cell phone number and your available dates in August for an interview.
