Preston North End is celebrating access and inclusion in football by inviting supporters with a disability to come and fulfil a day’s work experience at PNE in association with Level Playing Field’s Weeks of Action.
If you’re a Preston North End supporter with a disability, we’re giving you the chance to take part in a day behind the scenes at Preston North End.
The department or line of work you choose is entirely up to you, whether it be as part of the operation on a matchday, or experiencing what it’s like day to day to work at North End.
To be in with the chance of taking part, we require those interested to fill out the form below. We ask that all entrants put their three departments or line of work they wish to take part in, in order of preference.
Please note that only a handful of entries will be chosen, and not all requests can be fulfilled due to feasibility, so make sure your entry is as detailed and realistic as possible. The closing date for entries is Friday 15thFebruary at 12pm.
Those chosen will be working for a day only during the week commencing Monday 25th February. You and a parent/carer/friend will then be given tickets to watch PNE take on Bristol City at Deepdale on Saturday 2ndMarch where you’ll take to the pitch at half-time for a photo.
The Bristol City game will coincide with Level Playing Fields Weeks of Action which North End is pleased to be supporting again this year. Here, we’ll be joiningtogether with sports clubs, fans and organisations across England and Wales who are taking part in #WeeksOfAction2019 and have chosen to share one common message - access and inclusion for all.
Please fill out the form in full below to submit your interest in taking part in a days worth of work experience at Preston North End.
