If you are looking to gain event experience, add to your resume or to hone your leadership and communication skills then consider a Team Leader role! Team Leader positions involve supervising a small group and setting up and packing down your area. You will have training and support from the Volunteer Managers and MS Event staff on the day. We ask that all Team Leaders attend a training session and arrive early on event day.
Working as a team, you will be looking after the set up and pack down requirements of a site or course signage while also responding to operational requirements during the event. If available, pre and post event duties will include truck loading and site set up. This is a very active job and the work is physically demanding.
The MS Events Team are always looking for volunteers to help with tasks such as entry kit packing, mail outs, admin duties and more!
