Hobart International 2021 - Volunteer Expression of Interest

Sport One off - an event Glebe TAS

About this opportunity

International tennis is heading back to the Domain Tennis Centre from 9 January – 16 January 2021. The Hobart International tennis tournament will see over 60 of the world’s top female players compete for the Angie Cunningham trophy.

Whilst 2020 has been a year of unprecedented challenges, tennis remains on track for a big summer with a lot of work being done to ensure the safety of everyone at our events.

The eight days of action (including two days of qualifying) will see both day and night sessions over three match courts, providing hundreds of matches and a huge amount of action for tennis fans.

To deliver this great event, we are looking for volunteers to join the Hobart International team!

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR? Friendly and enthusiastic volunteers who have a passion for sport and who love working with people!

You’ll enjoy having a bit of fun and creating memorable experiences for everyone you come across – whether that be players, patrons or your fellow team members!

We’re looking for volunteers to help out across a number of key areas at the event.

WHY VOLUNTEER AT THE HOBART INTERNATIONAL? Volunteering at the Hobart International is a fantastic opportunity to get amongst the action of a world class International tennis tournament and also meet some amazing new people who share the same passion for sports and events that you do!

You’ll also have access to some exciting perks such as:

  • Complimentary tickets to the event
  • A Hobart International uniform
  • A meal voucher to use while you’re on shift
  • Access to parking when you are volunteering

WHAT DOES THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

  1. Please submit your expression of interest.
  2. The first step will be an online chat to see if the volunteer opportunity is right for you.
  3. We may then invite you to a recruitment assessment centre which we are currently looking to hold in November (date TBC). The assessment centre is a great opportunity for us to meet you, introduce you to other potential volunteers and run through a few activities.
  4. Successful volunteers will be required to apply for a Working with Children Check and a National Police Check (at no cost to yourself).

Please keep in mind this process may change due to ongoing updates related to COVID-19.

COVID-19 MEASURES: We are preparing for a number of different scenarios for January and are currently working hard to plan the biosecurity measures required to ensure the safety of our team.
