• Provision of emergency medical cover for the crowd at matches or events at the stadium.
• Development and implementation of medical best practice policies and procedures, including the Emergency Action Plan(s).

Each position will be offered on a casual basis at £150 per session, plus two season tickets and assistance with CPD. The successful candidate(s) will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check.
