Boxing Road to Tokyo
Our Parklife is recruiting volunteers for an exciting event coming up onto the Park: Boxing Road to Tokyo.
In March, more than 350 boxers from more than 40 countries will take part in the Boxing Road to Tokyo European qualifying event at the Copper Box Arena. Seventy-seven male and female boxers will secure qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The competition is sanctioned by the IOC and will take place across eight men’s and five women’s weight categories. 50 qualification places are available for men and 27 for women.
Volunteers are required to assist the arrivals and accommodation team as well as take on roles in sports information and spectator and venue services. Please apply here, stating the role and shifts you are interested in.
In January 2020, UEL/West Ham United Foundation students in sports management participated in a career workshop with the ENGIE Park team. This workshop allows students to have an insight into the world of Facilities Management including soft services, hard services, security, visitor services and events so that this can then be applied to their courses.
The students were then provided with a number of role-play scenarios set in our venues which aimed at getting students to think about Facilities Management and the many challenges faced on a regular basis. They were provided with briefings and tasked with creating innovative solutions to tackle real life operational challenges.
