Job Overview

Surrey County Cricket Club are seeking to build up their pool of tour guides to assist in the delivery of guided tours of the Kia Oval to Members of the Public, Corporate Guests, School Parties and other groups as necessary. The tours can vary in length from 45 minutes to 2 hours, depending on requirement.  

Public tours take place regularly on a Thursday/ Friday/ Saturday/Sunday on non-match days, with additional tours during holidays. Afternoon Tea Tours take place on match days during the season. Private tours can be at any time, although the majority are during weekday office hours. 

Tours involve guiding groups of up to 25 people around relevant areas of the Kia Oval.  

As tours happen mostly on an ad hoc basis the role is not suitable for anyone looking to use it as a regular source of income.

General Duties

Guides will be expected to deliver ground tours using the information, facts and stories that will be provided to them on the history of the Kia Oval and Surrey County Cricket Club. No set script is provided so guides must be able to memorise and deliver the information in a manner and style appropriate to the group they are leading and the length of the tour. Instruction and training is provided by experienced guides. Guides must be enthusiastic, responsible, outgoing and adaptable, with a good memory and excellent verbal communication skills enabling them to engage fully with tour visitors. A good knowledge of cricket is valuable but not essential.
