Your Chance To Work At CPFC

12 December 2012

Data Analyst Internship

An exciting placement opportunity has arisen at Crystal Palace Football Club to provide the successful applicant with a unique chance to learn about the exciting and fast moving sports marketing industry and the operations of a major football club.

The Internship

Based at Selhurst Park Stadium, you will be volunteering for this leading Championship football club in a role that will support the communications team with research, analysis and data on our customer base. 

The right candidate will have the business acumen and determination to make a success of this exciting challenge. The candidate should be confident conducting in-depth desk research of our e-marketing communication tools with the key output providing the Club with insights and trends in relation to our customer’s attendance at games.

The person
In order to be considered for this role, you must offer a strong academic background and be able to demonstrate the analytical, research and soft skills needed for the role.  Specifically, qualifications and attributes would include:

• Strong desk research and analytical skills
• Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal communication skills 
• Ability to think logically and strategically
• A curious and questioning approach
• Good IT skills (Outlook, Word, Excel & Access)
• Good time management and a flexible approach to working hours

The successful candidate must be available to volunteer for at least a minimum of 4 days per week for an initial period of 3 months, although there is potential to extend this internship if the candidate’s situation allows. 

Experience or knowledge of the commercial aspects of football is not as important as your core research, analysis and soft skills but in any event full training will be provided to the right candidate. Although this is an unpaid position, we offer excellent references upon successful completion of your assignment and the possibility of employment should a suitable vacancy become available.

If you would like to be considered for this rare and exciting opportunity to be involved with Crystal Palace Football Club, on a voluntary basis, please send your CV with covering letter to Karen Alford, Selhurst Park, London, SE25 6PU or email
