Which in turn suggests clubs are looking for staff on the cheap. Too easy to just outsource it.

The age of the population is older, and there are vast numbers of experienced older people who may well be looking for a bit of extra cash for a couple of hours a week. Clubs could advertise and and make the role more inclusive within the club so employees feel part of something.

Or alternatively, completely sub let the refreshment areas completely and utilise local eateries- bit like the fanzone. 

The offering is overpriced, average to shit quality stuff, served by prannocks.

Surely more money to be made by alternative approaches.

Minimum wage is the going rate as it always has been. The domain of the student on a Saturday. Unfortunately there are plenty of other jobs that pay minimum wage every Saturday - and for longer hours - rather than at best one in three. To match that we’d have to pay three times the minimum wage and that’s never going to happen. As I’ve posted previously, it’s the same situation with stewards - worse so, in fact, as they need qualifications - and is replicated at every stadium in the UK, in turn driving up the agency prices (but not the wages) as they know they hold all the cards.

The bused-in stewards we saw at end of last season with pale blue hi-viz vests on  were on a better rate of pay than our own BWFC stewards

Would assume they’ve argued a higher rate from their agency but given agencies charge £15 per hour versus £10 an hour for direct staff there probably isn’t much in it
