The Roles & Rates
All staff start on the same base rate at Eventfinda Stadium. We use a series of Staff Proficiency tasks to set your hourly rate and in most cases provide all the necessary training to achieve these levels. These tasks escalate in complexity from basic tasks such as supervising an event through to event builds and operating our cafe’s. As the Proficiency increases so does the hourly rate we pay you as you gain more skill. We will train you in almost all skills you need to pass the various proficiency tests, but you need your own attitude and willingness to learn. The roles are casual in nature and can vary from 30-40 hours one week to 5-10 the next as it is driven by our community demands.
All part time staff start on a base rate of $19 an hour. Salaried staff will start on an agreed salary, usually with some form of performance incentive. Once you have demonstrated Staff Proficiency in a number of tasks (SP1) you will progress to $19 per hour and once you have demonstrated Staff Proficiency Level 2 you will automatically advance to SP2 at $20 per hour and those who demonstrated staff proficiency Level 3 (Sp3) move up to $22 per hour.
We are looking for a superstar personality to join our Events team. As Event Coordinator you are responsible for the planning and delivery of all events held at Eventfinda Stadium from small community events to large televised sporting events, fight nights or concerts and everything in between.
You will experience it all, you will work hard and leave with fantastic experiences of some world class events.
This role is exciting and varied so you need to be highly adaptable under pressure and a rockstar at helping our clients find solutions to problems. The right person will be able to manage their own time well and be very process and detail oriented. It’s not uncommon for this role to have 4-6 events at different stages of planning most days of the year. Discipline and structure are essential in this role.
Our team is a people team, we value relationships and we work hard to deliver value and solutions for our clients. We’re looking for that bubbly person that everyone warms to, and the one everyone trusts to organise everything. If that’s you then this may be the role for you…..
Working under the supervision of the Operations Manager you should be able to work autonomously and manage your own responsibilities but also not be afraid to ask for help and support from our team.
This is a challenging but extremely rewarding role and a great opportunity for both a graduate or someone with a few years event experience that is looking to step into the next level.
Ideally, we are looking for someone with 2-3 years’ experience in the events industry but open to all applicants.
