Event Day Staff Recruitment

MCG event staff during the 2007 Boxing Day TestOur event staff are the face of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

This means whether you work as a car park attendant, ticket seller, turnstile operator or usher, you become the customer's first and last impression of their MCG experience.

As such, event staff have the opportunity to become a true ambassador and advocate for the MCG. 

In terms of event staff requirements, event work occurs on weekends or late afternoons into the evenings.

These hours differ week to week, depending on the sporting fixture.  Friday night availability is greatly preferred given there are a number of sporting events held on a Friday evening.

To proceed in applying for work, it is important that you are available and flexible to work  at most of these times.

Step 1: Completion of pre-selection application form

Please visit the Careers page of the MCC website.

Please complete the details on the “Sign Up tab” and ensure you select "Casual" for both Contract type and Employment type. You will then be required to select "Event Day Customer Service" for Category and "No Value" for Sub-Category, followed by the Add button to confirm your selection.

At this stage you may also add other areas of interest to receive Job Alerts for positions within other departments at the MCC.

The MCC will generally hold one to two Event Day recruitment campaigns per year and, having signed up for Job Alerts, you will receive an email notifying you when these opportunities become available.

When the MCC commences a recruitment campaign you will be required to formally apply and fill in additional information including pre-screening questions to complete your application. 

Please note that it is an essential requirement that you have the right to work in Australia and you will be required to provide evidence of this as part of the recruitment process.

This application commences the recruitment process - all applications will be reviewed and short listed applicants will be invited to attend an MCC Selection Centre.

Step 2: Group selection process

If shortlisted, you will be invited to attend a Selection Centre at the MCG.
Our Selection Centre is highly interactive, typically three hours in duration, and utilises the skills and abilities of experienced MCC staff as assessors.  

Shortly after the session, you will be contacted regarding the status of your application and whether your application will proceed to the final step of the selection process. 

Step 3: Reference checks and Victorian Police Records check

In progressing to the final step of the recruitment process, references will then be required.  You will also be asked to provide a Victorian Police Record Check as soon as possible.

Your application will not progress further until this step has been completed.

Step 4: Pre-employment induction

This stage includes an offer of employment (subject to all of the above meeting MCC requirements) and an invitation to attend two induction sessions to you introduce you working at the MCC. 

The first session will include a uniform fitting, photo ID, and completion of online training modules which includes the MCC Code of Conduct and Health & Safety.

The second session will provide you with the opportunity to learn about the MCC online rostering system and to collect  your uniform.

Step 5: Paid casual employment

You are now ready to commence your first working shift and will be provided with further on-the-job training.
