Volunteer Events Assistant

So you want to be an Events Volunteer? Fantastic! Welcome to the team.

 What will I need to do?

Our Events Assistants roles vary, depending on which event you’re attending. You could be directing people to on-site facilities, representing Visit Isle of Wight’s Visitor Information Centre or even promoting sustainable travel.

Where will I be based?

You’ll be based at the location of the event, but be prepared to travel across the island if the event spans multiple locations! You might be at the Classic Beer and Buses Weekend, the Literary Festival or even Cowes Week.

What skills will I need?

You’ll have good communication skills and you’ll enjoy speaking to members of the public. You’ll be enthusiastic, positive and approachable, and will have a genuine desire to promote the Isle of Wight as a visitor destination.

What support will I receive?

You’ll have access to lots of information about travel and we’ll help you to answer questions if you’re not sure about something. We’ll make sure you know who to contact if you have any problems and you’ll also receive refreshments, a Travel Ambassador t-shirt and a free bus pass if required.

How much time will I need to commit?

It’s totally up to you. We have lots of opportunities available and we really appreciate your time, so anything you can help us with will be great.
