Posting: Senators Promotions Crew
Time commitment: Part time / Game night
Position: The Ottawa Senators are currently looking for applicants to fill positions on the Senators Promotions crew for the upcoming 2017-2018 Season
Description: The Senators Promotions Crew is a co-ed interactive group that represents the Ottawa Senators organization at games, events and throughout the community. The role is quite literally that of a brand ambassador/promo model type position and is also part promotional street team, and part super fan! They are primarily responsible for making sure our fans have the best experience possible anywhere we go! At games, the team assists with on-ice and in-arena activities, contests, and promotions (t-shirt tosses, ticket upgrades, prize giveaways, raffles, etc.), and is also the group responsible for skating on the ice to remove build-up during media timeouts. The team also represents the Ottawa Senators organization at literally hundreds of events and appearances throughout the community, with particular emphasis on grassroots mobile marketing, fan development, and community/non-profit events.
Applicants need not be professionally trained skaters (hockey, figure, etc.), and all skating levels from zero to expert are accepted at auditions. But, one of the many functions of the Then Sens Promotions crew at games is to remove snow build-up from the ice surface, so a comfortable level of skating ability is definitely a plus but not required. Please note: Senators Promotions Crew members are required to wear hockey skates. So, those accustomed to wearing figure skaters are strongly encouraged to practice adjusting to hockey skates before the audition date. Not all Ice Crew members skate, but we encourage you to learn if you make the team.
First and foremost, Promotions Crew members are our brand ambassadors, so they all need to represent our team and our organization in the most positive and professional way possible. The selection committee are looking for all of the following: outgoing personality; good energy; positive attitude; strong teamwork skills; high level of physical fitness; professionalism; poise; strong communication abilities; strong work ethic; reliability; approachability; talent, and much more.
- Must be 18 years old as of September 1st 2017
- Current resume
- High school graduate (or equivalent)
- 5x7 or larger photo/headshot/comp card (does not need to be a professional photo - these will NOT be returned)
