Last chance to volunteer at Derry's Foyle Maritime Festival!
18 Jun 2018
Time is running out to volunteer at this year’s Foyle Maritime Festival. Applications of expressions of interest must be received by Wednesday (June 20th) to guarantee you get to be involved in one of Ireland’s biggest events this summer. Whether you want to commit to just a few hours or for the full week, the opportunities are endless, from welcoming visitors to assisting with some of the amazing events being staged from July 14th until July 22nd. Aisling McCallion, Festival and Events Officer with Derry City and Strabane District Council said: “Volunteering can be a great way of adding to your experience or giving something back to your community. The Foyle Maritime Festival is looking to add to our existing team of event volunteers and we currently have roles available in a wide range of areas. “We are looking for enthusiastic people to join our team and help us create an enjoyable, safe and friendly festival for visitors and international guests. “You’ll have the opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills, build your CV and give back to your community while soaking up the fun at this world class festival. Lunch will be provided each day of your volunteering and a certificate of appreciation will be awarded.” While the posts are unpaid, there are a range of benefits such as food allowance, a crew uniform, a volunteer recognition event and a certificate as well as free World Host training. Volunteers must be aged 16 and over and they are requested to give a minimum of four hours over the week of the event. To make an expression of interest, apply online at:
foylemaritime.com or email: email@example.com by Wednesday, June 20th, 2018. A volunteer briefing will take place at The Guildhall on Wednesday, June 27th at 2pm.
