Levy UK recruits food & drink staff for Wimbledon (and many other famous sporting events and venues). As Europe’s single biggest annual sporting catering operation, the Wimbledon tournament entertains almost half a million people over the course of two weeks

  • Food/Drinks Runners

  • Plate Waiting

  • Kitchen Porters

  • Retail Service Staff

Hourly pay is at least £10.85 (+ benefits) for most of the roles, but chefs can look forward to £15 or more per hour.

The Wimbledon Championships 2022 start on Monday 27th June and run through until Sunday 10th July but you’ll need to be able to start work on 25th June in order to make preparation for the event run smoothly.

Offering some insight into the unrivalled experience of working at the famous event, one team member from a previous year said: “Working at the Championships was fantastic! Working in such a fast paced and engaging environment was challenging but also incredibly rewarding. The atmosphere was always lively and the people were wonderful.”

Emphasising just how important team members are for a successful Championships, the Food & Drink Operations Director at Wimbledon, Charlie Cook, said: “Our people are our greatest asset, I believe in choosing people who have huge potential and developing them.”

The Managing Director of Levy UK, Jon Davies, also commented, saying: “The Championships are a truly special event in the sporting calendar and we are proud to be part of the magic that happens in SW19 every year. The key ingredient in making it so special is having amazing people working across the event, both front and back of house, to deliver exceptional, first class service to our guests”
