Crystal Palace Football Club is committed to safeguarding and ensuring the welfare and protection of children, young people and adults at risk. The club fully accepts its responsibility for children, young people and adults at risk. Our aim is to ensure that safeguarding runs through every element of the work we do to ensure the welfare and well-being of all those who engage in our activities.
All children, young people and adults at risk have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, sexual orientation, race, religion or belief. We believe that all adults working within the club, in any capacity, have a duty and responsibility to safeguard the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk.
We strive to do this by applying policy, procedures and best practice, engaging with the Premier League, FA and local authority partners to promote the safety and welfare of all those who engage in activities with the club. Our practice reflects statutory requirements and responsibilities. This allows our participants to enjoy any club activity in a safe, and inclusive environment.
The club expects all staff, players, volunteers, contractors and guests to share this commitment.
Crystal Palace Football Club endorses the principle of equality and will strive to ensure that everyone who wishes to be involved in the club whether as players, match-day fans, staff, board members, participants in foundation programmes and other people engaged with the club’s activities (for example, suppliers, corporate partners):
Has a genuine and equal opportunity to participate to the full extent of their own ambitions and abilities, without regard to their age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion and belief, sex or sexual orientation; and
Can be assured of an environment in which their rights, dignity and individual worth are respected, and in particular that they are able to enjoy their engagement at the club without the threat of intimidation, victimisation, harassment, bullying and abuse.
As users of the disability confident scheme, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy.
Kevin Phillips' converted spot-kick in the 2013 Championship Play-Off ensured Crystal Palace's top-flight fortunes to present day. The Eagles have enjoyed life in the Premier League for a sustained period now under Roy Hodgson's stewardship, and it's safe to say the ship has steadied into a reputable Premier League outfit.
Just like their London based counterparts in Tottenham and Arsenal to name only two, careers at Crystal Palace FC provides the opportunity to work in a fast-paced elite environment located in the heart of the capital. Situated in Selhurst, South London, the club offers potential employees an attractive setting to call a workplace.
A career at Crystal Palace FC may evolve into working at the club's training facilities in Bromley, Kent. Early in 2020, Bromley Council gave the green light for planning permission to upgrade the training ground to a Category 1 academy status and join a leading group of football clubs in England with similar. Nearly 40 players have progressed through the academy since the turn of the millennium, making more than 1,000 appearances between them, stressing its importance to the club.
There are currently 100 part-time and 35 full-time employees at the academy with plans to increase that headcount. The club have announced they will recruit another 20 scouts to accompany the upgrade in facilities. We would also expect multiple vacancies opening at the football club following such change to match the increased workload. Crystal Palace's future is improving season on season. By undertaking a career at Crystal Palace, you can tag along for the ride.
For an idea of the rate of pay at Selhurst Park, a matchday retail catering operator/bartender position is advertised at £10.75/hr, rising to £13/hr for the matchday chefs. Crystal Palace FC is a London living wage employer, offering competitive salaries throughout the organisation. The Eagles join Chelsea, Everton, West Ham and Liverpool as accredited living wage employers.
