About us
We compete at the highest levels of football on a global stage whilst keeping our Sussex community spirit. Our vision is to be a top ten Premier League club and a top four Women鈥檚 Super League club. A commitment to high performance, high professional standards and making a difference is at the heart of everything we do.

Ensure our pitch is matchday ready for the 24/25 season!

Excitement, adrenaline and 32,000 roaring fans and a perfectly manicured turf; this is what it will feel like to work at the Albion!

We are hiring for a pool of candidates to come and support our grounds team on a matchday. This is a great hands-on opportunity based at our stadium in Brighton, to assist in maintaining our state-of-the-art football pitch. You will operate machinery and equipment associated with grounds maintenance and ensure all taks are carried out in line with operating procedures.

About you

Ideally you will have or are working towards a qualification in sports turf management, certified in driving agricultural vehicles and hold your PA1, PA6 and PA2A certificates in pesticide usage, however this is not essential. In this role you will need to be collaborative and team oriented, so we are looking for someone who has experience of working in a large team of staff in a similar environment.

Our values play a pivotal role in our success

Act with Integrity

Make it Special

Our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace that reflects the diversity of our society and the world around us. Our core values mean that we have a strong ethical culture which allows us to meet the needs of our diverse audience, both on and off the pitch. We encourage applications from individuals regardless of their age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnership. If you require any reasonable adjustments to support your application, do not hesitate to get in touch with [email protected].
