Balmoral Show 10-13 May 2017 - Showmaker Role

Distance and Location
bt27(Lisburn County Antrim)    Distance: 0 miles

About the Opportunity
The Balmoral Show is the major event in the agri/food calendar in Northern Ireland attracting over 90,000 visitors each year.

This is an excellent opportunity for volunteers to get involved with a long standing traditional show. It is important that as a Showmaker, supported by Tesco, you are friendly, approachable, well presented, enjoy meeting people and have a 'can do' attitude as your main role will be to meet and greet visitors. Reliability is a must and you should be reasonably physically fit as you will be on your feet a lot of the time. You should be able to get on with a variety of people as you will be volunteering as part of a team. An interest in farming, the countryside, animals etc would be useful but not essential. You will not be asked to work directly with animals in any way.

HOURS: minimum of 5 hours in any one day from Wednesday 10th May until Saturday 13th May 2017.

WHERE: The Show will be held at Balmoral Park, Halftown Road, Lisburn BT27 5RF.

TRAINING: It is a requirement to attend a short orientation session prior to the event to familiarise volunteers with the venue. Date to be confirmed.

EXPENSES: Mileage will be paid at 40p per mile. Food vouchers will be provided for meals whilst volunteering on site. Free parking on site for volunteers.

UNIFORMS: A branded uniform will be provided. We would ask that volunteers provide their own dark trousers/skirt and their own comfortable footwear.

** CLOSING DATE for applications: 4.30 pm on Friday 21 April 2017 **
