We are looking to recruit additional volunteers to join our enthusiastic and committed team.
The 2024 festival takes place from Thursday 23 May to Monday 27 May, and we are looking to recruit volunteers to help with a range of tasks across the five evening headline concerts taking place between 23 to 27 May and across three days at our daytime outdoor music performances.
Free Sidmouth Jazz Festival T-shirt and lanyard, free refreshments throughout including the wonderful mini pasties/sandwiches made by the catering team, free soft drinks and a limited amount of beer and wine, free entrance to the ticket only evening concerts and daytime performances.
In exchange for access to all 5 days of the festival (which would usually cost £235) we ask that you work for four shifts.
Volunteers will be full briefed and supported throughout your shift. Lots of laughter, camaraderie, and a fabulous day out!
Volunteers required to greet and help festival goers, as necessary.
These volunteers will be responsible for making sure the site is kept clean and tidy, including emptying bins and checking trailer toilets are kept clean and stocked.
These volunteers will be located at our dedicated box office to greet concert goers, sell tickets (including using a card reading machine), give out wrist bands and stickers and encourage donations.
This crucial role is required during the daytime music performances to mingle with festival goers and encourage them to donate towards ensuring the future of the festival. We will use donation buckets and payment card readers. A smiling and positive demeanour is key.
Volunteers are required to manage the sale of our festival merchandising located within a gazebo next to the box office selling festival t-shirts, tote bags and artiste’s merchandise.
Stewards will be required in each of our worship venues over the weekend, marshalling the attendees and checking bookings etc.
This is a ‘back of house’ role involving looking after volunteer belongings and making sure food and drinks are replenished during the day and evening.
For information on how to apply and to be part of our friendly positive festival team, please email our festival volunteer coordinators Jacqui and Lisa.
