As a fans-run football club, we rely on the kind heartedness of our supporters who donate their personal time by volunteering for the club.

But although we are well served by a fantastic team of volunteers we still need to attract more supporters to help us deliver on match days.

The more volunteers we can attract the more the work can be shared. Volunteers do not have to be available to work every home match day but if you are able to help out even just a few times a season this would be a great help in the continuing success of this thing of ours.

If you are interested in joining the army of volunteers please have a look below at the various roles below and if you are interested in a particular role please contact the relevant team leader.

Fundraising coordinator

Dorchester Town Community Football Club Ltd is a not-for-profit, mutual organisation. The club is owned and run by its shareholders, none of who can own more than one share. This form of mutual ownership is the same method used by clubs like FC United of Manchester, AFC Wimbledon and Exeter City.

The main revenues for a football club are: Football revenue – gate receipts, cup prize money, transfer fees Commercial revenue – sponsorship, advertising, match day competitions Venue revenues – bar and catering income, room hire Fundraising revenue – grants from local and national organisations

Dorchester Town Football Club is now creating a dedicated role of ‘Fundraising Coordinator’ who will have the responsibility of heading a small but hardworking team of dedicated volunteers.

Job purpose:
1.    Continually research sources of grant funding
2.    Report all available grants to the Board
3.    Write grant applications as approved by the Board
4.    Identify fundraising opportunities and organize Local Events

Working pattern:

About you:
You are courteous, resourceful and possess good people and organisational skills and have some experience in fundraising and Event organisation. You have the desire and ability to take on projects by yourself. This job will suit you either because you are semi-retired or because the current job market makes it hard to get any paid work at the moment and this will ensure your skills/experience stay current.

Back-up Cameraman

We are hugely fortunate to have Sam Bernard, who expertly runs the DTFCtv operation – filming matches to offer highlights for fans and full-match analysis for Mark Jermyn and the team.

Given the importance the highlights now serve, we require a back-up cameraman should Sam be unable to attend a match. We dont envisage this role requiring much time at all, but it would be great to have that back-up, should we need it.

Free admission and complimentary half-time refreshments will be offered and in return, we simply need someone to collect the camera from the main office, set up from the gallery in the main stand and film the match. Subsequent editing duties are already arranged and this role will simply take place for the 90 minutes.

How to apply

Candidates should apply to the club office by calling  01305 262451 or email: manager@dorchestertownfc.co.uk or just ask a club official

Match-day Programme Sellers

Selling programmes is easy and fun. Sellers are required to be at the ground one hour before kick-off time when they will be given their programmes and their “pitch”. Sellers are positioned on the outside and inside of the ground.

When the match starts selling finishes and the sellers return to the cash office to hand in their takings.

You will need to be familiar with dealing with cash and counting change and be polite to all members of the public you meet – after all you are the “face” of the club and in some cases the first DTFC member visitors will meet.

You will be joining a friendly, helpful team so don’t be worried about not knowing what to do, there will always be a team member available to help you.

If you want to sell programmes or need to know a bit more about what’s involved contact Annie Greenslade via manager@dorchestertownfc.co.uk
