Talking to others


An interest in and experience of camping and music festivals is a must! You must be a 'people person' and ideally bring some experience to the team such as first aid, social care or related professions. Welfare work can be physically as well as emotionally demanding, so you will need to be fit. You will be working in shifts as part of a team with management by a shift leader and support for you will always be available. There are plenty of breaks. You will receive briefings before each event and will be expected to follow managers' directions at all times, especially at busy times, for the safety and wellbeing of all.
