What will I be doing?
The Buggy Drivers are responsible for managing the travel requirements of artists on and around site between 8am and midnight, as required by the artist Liaison Team and Programming Office. You will also be moving instruments and equipment across the festival site, in a timely and safe manner.
Please note that depending on the demand on site at any given time, you may be required to help in the Programme Runners team or the Artist Liaison team as needed during your shift. You are also the first point of contact to be taken to support other teams if there is a sudden need for more volunteers, so you must be open to working alongside other teams for short periods of time.
All volunteers undergo a compulsory training every year before their first shift.
What skills do I need?
You will need to:
be aged 21 or more
have a clean driving licence
be an effective team worker who shows initiative and ownership of the role
be able to work calmly and effectively under pressure in a fast paced environment
be flexible and well organised
be able to work unsupervised
be able to manage multiple tasks
have a personable manner and be an enthusiastic individual
You will also be asked to provide a driving licence check code within the month before the festival.
What hours will I be volunteering?
A small team will be required Thursday afternoon, arriving Wednesday, with the full team arriving Thursday and starting Friday morning.
You will be required to be on duty for a minimum of 6 hours, split into 3 hour shifts.
A small team will also be required on Tuesday to help artists leave site.
