Operations - Staff Recruitment

2024 Kentucky Football Schedule

UK Athletics Operations is currently recruiting and hiring part-time event staff in preparation for the 2024-25 athletic year. This position is responsible for assisting operations staff in all areas of event operations (i.e. ticket scanning, parking, soft security, ushering, event setup, venue maintenance and other duties as assigned) at events hosted by UK Athletics. We rely on our event staff to play an important role in consistency, efficiency and effectiveness in all aspects of our football game day operation.

Priority will be given to those available and willing to work the 2024 football season.

Unfortunately, due to NCAA and departmental policies, we are unable to hire:
Full-time UK Faculty & Staff
Students enrolled in 9th-12th grade for the 2024-2025 school year
High School Coaches and individuals who coach any team that includes students in grades 9-12

Successful applicants must be available for most, if not all, 2024 UK home football games. Staff will be trained during summer orientation sessions to fulfill the responsibilities of the positions. Shifts generally range in duration from 4-14 hours, depending on the assignment. Event Staff are paid an hourly wage and some jobs require lifting, extensive walking, and/or standing.

Kick-off times are TBA.

With most shifts taking place on nights and weekends, this is a great opportunity for individuals with full-time jobs who are interested in supplementing their income.

Opportunity to control your availability and work schedule.
Complimentary athletic gear, with an occasional opportunity to purchase additional items at a discounted cost.
Free admission for each staff member to the CATSPY Awards, the annual UKAD student-athlete awards banquet.
