South West Festival Committee Member

  • Location:
    South West
  • Closing Date:
    31 May 2024

Role title: South West Festival Committee Member 

Location: South West Region (see description)

Time commitment: Flexible (at least 2-3 hrs a month)


What we’re looking for

We’re looking for enthusiastic, creative and organised people from across the South West region to join our South West Festival Committee group. Our Committee group helps us to attend festivals across the region and be our NSPCC ambassadors. 

Around 90 per cent of our income comes from our supporters and we couldn’t continue doing what we do without them. That means, our community fundraising volunteers play a really important part in rallying people together to raise vital funds which help to protect children and prevent abuse.


What you’ll do

From organising fun family friendly activities to coordinating attendance, you'll be showing that we are always here for children when they need us most. Attending festivals helps raise awareness of NSPCC and Childline services. NSPCC annually attend WOMAD in Malmesbury, Wiltshire (end of July) and are exploring future opportunities with Glastonbury and Bestival. Your role will be to support our Community Fundraising team at the festival, taking on the running of engagement activities, chatting with the public and promoting a positive image of the NSPCC.
You’ll be a valued part of one of our Volunteer Community Fundraising Teams across the UK, raising awareness and funds. We appreciate that work, family and friends come first and, with that in mind, this role offers flexibility to fit in with your lifestyle. You only need to commit to a couple of hours a month in the run up to the event, the festival period itself but if you want to do more that would be great.


What you’ll get

We’ll support you with advice, skills and tools to help you fundraise and spread the word of the NSPCC. You'll have access to our volunteer portal offering training opportunities; knowledge and learning, discount portal and chatter function.  
You’ll learn more about how you’re helping to protect children across the UK, and you’ll have the opportunity to grow your skills and inspire others to support us.
It’s also a chance to spend time with like-minded people and make new friends.
At WOMAD you'll get free entry to the festival, backstage passes/treatment and food expenses covered.


Who’s right for the role?

While we think this role is suitable for a whole range of people, we are particularly looking for those with the following qualities and experiences.

  • Passionate about helping young people and children
  • Enthusiastic and personable
  • Strong organisational skills
  • Able to think on your feet
  • You work well within a team
  • Great communication and social skills
  • Don't mind travelling across the region to festivals 
  • Comfortable with remote meetings to aid planning
  • Love festivals!

We are currently unable to accept applications from under 18's to this role, please view our other volunteering opportunities or get in touch with the Volunteer Recruitment team on volunteerrecruitment@nspcc.org.uk
