I’m known by a different name at Greenbelt. What name should I put on my application?
Please use your actual name. There is a box where you can add the name you are known as at Greenbelt. Reference requests will be sent automatically, using the information you have given. Whilst at the Festival you may be known as Sleepy, your referee may not know who Sleepy Smith is, when they are asked for a reference.
Can I apply for more than one role?
You can only apply for one role, with the exception of the following pre-festival teams – Earlybirds, Pre-festival Stewards and Site Vibing, Pre-Festival Reception and Volunteer Registration.
If you volunteer on a pre-festival team you are either free to enjoy the festival, having completed your role, or you can volunteer for another role during the festival, provided this does not interfere with your pre-festival role.
Post-festival stewarding is only available to those who have completed a full volunteer role either pre or during the festival.
If you are interested in applying for a second team, you will need to email email@example.com
What happens after I apply?
Once you have successfully submitted your application you will get an automated email confirming your application has been submitted. Once your application has been checked by the team leader, we will request references, if needed this year. Please let your referees know to look out for a request from Greenbelt. If they don’t see it in their Inbox, it may have gone into Junk Mail.
Once the application process has been completed you will receive an automated email. Your team leader will be in touch at a later stage.
If you don’t receive the automated messages, please check your junk mail.
Is my place confirmed?
Your place won’t be confirmed straight away. All the Team Leaders, who process the applications, are volunteers, and do this in their spare time. They will go through applications in the coming months, and let you know if you have been successful.
I’ve not received any emails
Once your application has been submitted, and subsequently accepted, you will be sent automated emails confirming this. You will be contacted by your Team Leader nearer to the festival. Some Team Leaders start contacting their team early on, others wait until much closer to the festival, depending on the size and needs of the team. All of our Team Leaders are volunteers, and process their team’s applications in their spare time.
Sometimes emails sent by Greenbelt or automated from Sheep end up going straight into junk mail. If you don’t hear from us, please check your junk mail before getting in touch with us.
If you still can’t see any emails, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reference checks are sent out automatically to the email address you give on your application form. Unless you hear otherwise, you can assume your reference check has been successful. To change your referee details after you have submitted your application you will need to contact us at email@example.com.
What if my address or contact details change?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I have to do any training?
Training is compulsory for all volunteers, even if you have volunteered before. There will be a basic training that all our volunteers must undertake. There will also be role-specific training. You will be sent details of training times nearer to the festival.
Will I get more information?
All volunteers will be sent a Volunteer Handbook, by email, nearer to the festival. Please read this as it will give you lots of information you will need to know.
You Team Leader will also contact you with more information when it becomes available.
What if I need to cancel?
If, once you have applied, you are no longer able to volunteer, please email email@example.com or, once you have received confirmation of your role from your Team Leader, please contact them.
