Pride 2018: 5-15 July | Pride Day: Sat 14 July

Pride Day Area Coordinators


We’re looking to recruit 4 volunteer Area Managers for Pride Day. Area Managers will be responsible for helping us run designated areas of the festival. We are specifically looking for coordinators for our:
Family Area (Ideally CRB checked)
Community Tent
Market and Food Traders
Accessibility (including designated viewing areas)
Dance & Performance Village

Tasks on the day will include helping set up in the morning of the event and coordinating any area sponsors or stall holders within your area. If needed you will also help recruit or simply coordinate volunteer staff for your area and be the point of contact for the Pride Team on the day.
You’ll need strong communication skills and the ability to think quickly to resolve any problems that might arise on the day. You’ll know that the day is about having fun, ensuring the safety of other festival goers and maintaining standards for both Pride and any sponsors.

This role will involve some pre planning work in the months leading up to Pride and you must be available on the day. These roles are vitally important to the smooth running of the festival and you’ll be helping to ensure the day goes without a hitch and is a safe and fun environment for all.

Whilst this is a voluntary role, due to the importance of this role we will be conducting interviews and will appoint based on this selection procedure. Experience of events management and coordination would be preferable but we’re looking for someone who is passionate about Pride, doing a good job and perhaps wants more experience in the field.

You will have the full support of the Pride Team on the day and we hope to make this a fun and engaging opportunity for you.

To apply please send a covering letter explaing which role you would like to apply for, why you would like the role, any relevent experience and a CV to
