Volunteers Team Leader

Aim of volunteering role:

Volunteers are the backbone of madeinroath. As a community arts festival, we are only funded for about half of the work that we do. Without the time, support and knowledge of our volunteers the festival wouldn’t be what it is today. This year we are introducing the Team Leader voluntary position as we want to ensure that all of our volunteers get the support and advice they need. This position will be extremely important as the key connection between coordinators and volunteers.

Tasks:

  1. Support organisers/coordinators during the festival in ensuring volunteers are kept track of, fed, and given regular breaks.
  2. Be a point of contact for volunteers during the festival week.
  3. Any other festival supporting tasks that you choose to undertake - to be discussed with the volunteer coordinator.

Time commitments:

Festival role induction/training // Date TBA

Madeinroath pre-festival planning meetings x2 // Date TBA

Festival dates: 15 - 22 October // The weekend of 21st & 22nd October will have the most volunteer involvement. We won’t know how much support will be needed during the rest of the week until the events are confirmed in September.

Role reports to:

Georgina Allen, Volunteer Coordinator.

Transport:

Volunteers should not require own transport during volunteering hours. All venues are restricted to the Roath area, so are all within walking/public transport distance.
