The Championships, Wimbledon is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and is widely considered the most prestigious. Of the four annual Grand Slam tournaments, Wimbledon is the only one to be played on grass. Held at the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), 2018 sees the 132nd edition. The site which covers over 42 acres is meticulously prepared in advance of the event and LSS play a pivotal role in ensuring that such standards are maintained during the tournament itself. LSS are also instrumental in the operations and delivery of the Qualifying Tournament held at the Bank of England Sports Ground, Roehampton in the week preceding the Championships.
Our aim is to enhance the renowned Wimbledon experience. We recruit only the highest calibre of staff who possess a keen eye for detail and demonstrate exemplary customer service skills, to represent not only LSS but also our client, the AELTC. In excess of 500 temporary staff are recruited annually to ensure that we can fully deliver and service the event. Opportunities are available from May until August in the build-up to, during and following both the Qualifying Tournament and Championships.
