A Stadium Manager oversees the operational aspects of a sports club’s stadium. Their responsibility is broad. They manage the Groundsperson, Facilities Manager, Security Manager, Cleaning Manager and Events Manager to make the stadium as presentable and commercially viable as possible. Ensuring a safe environment at all times, a Stadium Manager searches for the most cost effective way to operate on a day-to-day basis.
DID YOU KNOW?
A Stadium Manager works closely with the marketing department to promote events and increase ticket sales.
Experience of leading and managing a department at a senior level is required. This will have developed an applicant’s project management and event management skills. A proven competency with managing budgets, delivering key objectives and working as a team should be demonstrated.
An undergraduate degree is usually required, though possession of an NVQ Level 4 in Spectator Safety Management is considered a good alternative. A project management qualification, such as from PRINCE2, is advantageous, as is a health and safety qualification from the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH).
