With tickets for Newcastle Falcons’ upcoming Aviva Premiership game against Worcester Warriors selling fast, the student brand managers are working hard to continue their work increasing the student support in universities across the North East.
With links to Northumbria, Sunderland, Newcastle, East Durham and Gateshead, the student team are hoping to top the impressive number of tickets that were sold for the game against Northampton Saints last February.
For the Worcester game, the student brand managers are selling tickets to fellow students at their universities at a reduced price of £10 for the North Stand at the Falcons’ home ground, Kingston Park.
As a result of their success, the student team is looking for new recruits to join them in promoting the Falcons as they head into the final few games of the Premiership season.
Joining the eight existing student brand managers, the second wave of applicants will be working on a commission basis selling tickets and helping to promote the club and its values to the local universities as the Falcons head into their last few games of the Premiership this season.
Students also have the chance to become part of the match day experience, interacting with supporters and helping the club expand and develop its existing features. As well as receiving branded merchandise and marketing support materials, match day helpers also receive a free ticket to that day's game.
If you would like to find out more from the students themselves, contact the existing team at their twitter addresses, which can be found below.
In order to join the student team, send a copy of your CV with accompanying cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
