Administration

Volunteering in the Team Office alongside our staff team puts you right at the administrative centre of the event. The role can be extremely busy at the start of the break as we welcome team and guests to the event, but during the rest of the week, when it is quieter, there is a wide variety of administrative tasks to be fulfilled and errands to be run.

You will have a good opportunity to get to know your fellow volunteers and time to enjoy the Spring Harvest programme when you are not on shift.
