YOUR DAY COULD INVOLVE ANYTHING FROM DIRECTING TRAFFIC, TO SETTING UP VENUES, PATROLLING THE SITE OR ANSWERING QUESTIONS AT THE INFORMATION DESK IN THE MAIN TENT/BUILDING.
No one day will be the same. It’s one of the most hands-on roles with a lot of interaction with team and delegates. Smiling is essential! The stewarding team ensures the smooth running of the event. You’ll uphold onsite safety and security regulations and direct delegates around the site. Applicants are required to work as part of a team, under the direction of the chief steward, liaising closely with Information and within health and safety and fire regulations. The role involves patrolling our whole camping site and taking action in line with the campsite’s and LifeStream’s regulations. Stewards work in all the venues maintaining security and helping delegates. They ensure all participants are wearing their name badges and process the recycling and rubbish for our sites.
Information: Based in the Information area in the main venue, this role mans the desk and is the source of information for anyone who needs it as well as coordinating what needs to be done.
You must be 16 years and over to apply.
Hours: All stewards will work shifts of approx nine hours each day. However though you are on duty you will be able to take part in most of what is happening around you. Shifts are timed to allow team members to attend one programme session without duty a day unless there is an emergency when all will be required to help.
Stewards pay half the delegate price as they cannot attend the whole programme and get all meals in the dining tent (unless they opt out) so that they can attend to their tasks without needing to prepare food.
Members of this team need to be present onsite by Saturday afternoon if possible or at least by Sunday afternoon (remember to book accommodation for the Saturday night) and are invited to the Teams drinks and nibbles 8:30pm on Saturday evening.
