Coventry-based security company Stadium has launched one of the biggest recruitment drives in its history with almost 300 new jobs available across Birmingham and the West Midlands.

Stadium has around 280 casual roles to fill as it prepares for a busy 2022.

Jobs range from spectator safety stewards, door supervisors, and customer service stewards, all of which will play a key role in sporting events in the West Midlands this year.

David McAtamney, owner and founder of Stadium, said: “There is lots happening in the sporting and recreation calendar this year across our region which is fantastic to see.

“The year is already lining up to be one of our busiest ever with new work home and abroad, but as a West Midlands company it is great to be able to offer so many jobs locally.

“We have won some exciting new contracts for 2022 and the fact we are continuing to recruit and expand is a fantastic show of confidence in our industry, especially after the past couple of years.”

Roles are on a casual contract basis, giving people flexibility to work around other commitments or work as much as they would like.

Some of the responsibilities include welcoming all visitors to the venues, dealing with queries and offering assistance regarding the event, and helping to direct flow of foot traffic.

Experience working within the field is advantageous but not essential, as Stadium will provide all training to support successful candidates.

Stadium has an excellent reputation within the industry and works on a national and international scale, providing traffic management, event services and training, as well as rental of security barriers, the hiring of stewards and SIA security staff for events.

The leading security specialist supports a wide variety of events ranging from sell-out concerts, high-profile conferences, to Premier League football matches with clients including Liverpool Football Club, Burnley Football Club, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
