Raiders looking for volunteers

By 25 January, 2012 16

The Canberra Raiders are looking for fans willing to give up their time to help out the club on game days.

But they are offering a very significant package in return:

The Canberra Raiders are looking for dedicated and passionate volunteers to join the team during the 12 home games at Canberra Stadium in 2012.

A commitment from volunteers involves the availability at a minimum of 8 home games. Volunteers would be required to start duties 15 minutes before the commencement of the Toyota Cup Match and conclude duties at half time of the NRL match.

All volunteers receive:

- Free entry to all games
- Free parking
- Raiders cap
- Raiders polo
- Raiders jacket
- A food and beverage voucher at each game
- NRL entry pass to all NRL regular season matches

If you would like to register your expression of interest or would like further information, please email reception@raiders.com.au or phone (02) 6253 3515

Sounds too good to be true for the green eyed faithful!

Free parking? I thought most Raiders supporters came on the little buses.

It’s a nice offer but clearly money is becoming a real issue for NRL clubs. As has attracting a major sponsor.

So if I work for free they won’t charge me to be there or for my uniform and will even throw me a feed? That’s amazing! Someone call Volunteering Australia and tell them the bar has been lifted!

Receiving something in return for volunteering is called employment.

Before you get too excited, remember these are Raiders games you get to go to. Did you see them at all last season?

Thankfully they’re not going to make you to stick around for the second half.

Let’s see, something that starts just before the pre-match game and is done by half-time. Obviously nothing to do with the players otherwise you would need to be there till after the main game. Likewise for cheerleader wardrobe assistant. Food and drink are private contractors.

My guess is car park attendants or ticket collectors. Either way you aren’t going to see much of your eight mandatory games.

At least they aren’t asking for someone to launder the uniforms.

Isn’t late in the second half when they traditionally come good? Sounds just the ticket for me.

Depends but it usually involves ushering people to their seats in the grandstand and directing other people who’ve bought tickets to their seats. Hence why the duties are usually finished by half time.

My father-in-law has done it for years and sees nearly all of every game. I would do it in a second if I could afford the time to be at the weeknight Toyota Cup games. So, just an ordinary Gold Membership for me in 2012.

Make sure you dress up as a Labrador, otherwise they won’t give you the time of day.

I like what RedDogInCan said about the cheerleaders.

I’ll only help if I can assist them!

Go Roosters!!

I’ll gladly help out the cheerleaders. I’m sure they need a hand!
