If you have a positive attitude, a team-first approach rather than a “my role” mentality, a commitment to providing exceptional customer service, and wish to join the Victoria HarbourCats at Royal Athletic park in 2023, please email a resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note which position(s) you are applying for in the subject. Due to the expected volume of applications, it is likely that only short-listed applicants will be contacted.
Please note, we have limited paid positions – some that are salaried, others that are hourly pay at minimum wage – and we also have ‘fun at the park” volunteer positions for our 2023 season that are perfect for students looking to satisfy volunteer hours, or those who simply love baseball and want to spend time at the park. The Volunteer Positions are intended for those who love being at the ballpark and helping out – volunteers have access to the park during all games, and we highly value those who can make all, if not most, of the games, to help out.
