***THIS JOB VACANCY HAS NOW CLOSED***
Reports to: Director of Operations
Start date: ASAP
Length of contact: 3 months with potential for longer term
Salary: £7.50 per hour (National Minimum Wage)
Tickets For Troops (ticketsfortroops.org.uk) was set up in 2009 to recognise the brave servicemen and women who spend months away from their families, need to be available to serve at short notice and put their lives on the line for our country. We recognise the troops’ commitment, drive and dedication by offering them, on behalf of our donors, tickets to events which they can share with their loved ones, as a small acknowledgement of the work they do. We have over 160,000 troops registered to the charity.
Tickets For Troops has allocated over 950,000 tickets to our nation’s heroes in the last seven years demonstrating the enormous support and respect our UK sports, music, theatre and entertainment industries have for our military men and women.
Who we’re looking for and to do what?
We’re looking for someone who is keen to provide excellent customer service to our military members and who wants to develop their administrative skills.
We want someone who enjoys delivering good news as you will be making lots of phone calls to inform troops that they have been successful in obtaining complimentary tickets for events.
You will also have the opportunity to support the operations of the charity whilst working hard to improve the ticket supply we offer our servicemen and women so we need someone who is ready to get stuck in.
The Tickets For Troops team is quite small and therefore you will become very much part of the team. This is a great opportunity to gain invaluable experience and enhance your CV.
