“We’re looking for people who want to be part of the Jaguars organization and know how to treat people and have a good time and value customer service,” said Jaguars Director of Guest Services, Angie Nix.

The Jaguars are giving you an opportunity to be more than just a fan, this weekend when they host a job fair to fill game day positions. Nix said you couldn't ask for a more exciting job.

“We love consistency and we love people to come back year after year which tends to be the case anyway when you get down here and you feel the environment and feel everything that’s going o,n you want to be part of it year after year,” said Nix.

The job fair will take place Sunday from Noon to 4 p.m. and Monday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

It will be located in the East Club of the stadium and you can park in lot C or D.
The jobs are typically part time and seasonal. Just a few examples include concessions, ticket takers, ushers, parking, security and more.

“There’s not necessarily a perfect number of people there’s just a perfect person we just need to hire all the right people however many that is,” said Nix.

After the draft and major construction underway at EverBank Field, Nix said this is a great season to get involved.

“The atmosphere is contagious it’s something obviously the Jaguars are something exciting, it’s unique to be a part of if you think of working here on any given Sunday working here you’re one of only 16 cities hosting an NFL game so you get to be part of that excitement,” said Nix.

There will be 11 different companies hiring at the job fair, from the company that runs concessions to the one that runs security but no matter who you're hired by, you'll officially be a part of the Jaguars organization.
