SARACENS PIONEER VOLUNTEERS

Our renowned Saracens Pioneer Volunteer programme was established in the Olympic year of 2012. Saracens Pioneers are the life blood (DNA) of Saracens along with the staff and players. Match days are delivered with the support, participation, and time given by our volunteers, known as ‘The Pioneers’. The Pioneers make each and every home match day a unique and fabulous experience for all our visitors to StoneX Stadium.

We maintain a pool of up to 170 Pioneers with typically 90 to 100 volunteering on match day.  Recruitment cycles are annual and start in summer. The programme sets high expectations and has done so since inception in 2012, becoming the envy of many sporting organisations nationally and globally. The programme delivers an enhanced customer service to Spectators whilst upholding our Saracens core values.  Pioneers are part of the Saracens family, are highly valued throughout the club, partners, sponsors and fanbase.

Our Pioneers are a diverse group of people of all ages and backgrounds.  Some of our Pioneers travel from further afield, to support Saracens, besides those who live locally in and around North London.

Saracens Pioneers are a team of match day volunteers who represent the smiling faces of Saracens Rugby Club. This opportunity is for anyone interested in volunteering with an elite sporting organisation at its spectator events at StoneX Stadium. The programme will give volunteers practical insight into match day operations, crowd dynamics, as well as achieving a qualification in Spectator Safety.

Our programme currently consists of 16 home matches for Saracens Mens rugby matches that Pioneers can support throughout the season. Whilst we would love for our volunteers to support on all 16 matches, we know that this is not always possible. We do however hope that we cab get about +/- of 8 games throughout the season for Pioneers to support on.

Pioneer Match Day key roles and responsibilities include but not limited to the following:

Health and safety, welfare and the meeting and greeting to the very highest standards, of all our Spectators and visitors within the stadium environment on a match day.  Saracens Pioneers are a unique resource that draws on best practice for crowd safety management, stewarding and customer service to all our visitors.

Pioneers do provide a dedicated service to assist our disabled visitors.  A number of our Pioneers have professional experience working with client groups with a range of physical, emotional and learning challenges.

All of our Pioneers volunteer in Spectators Services in the following areas:

  • Meeting & Greeting and welcoming Spectators, visitors and fans within and to the Stadium, through our three gates and at Edgware, Mill Hill Broadway and Mill Hill East stations, as well as at the Pursley Road bus stops and footpaths
  • Undertaking ticketing duties at our three gates
