16-19 May: Balmoral Show

Volunteers needed for The Balmoral Show - the major event in the agri/food calendar in Northern Ireland attracting over 115,000 visitors each year over the 4 days.

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 16th May until Saturday 19th May 2018.  

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

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 20 April 2018.
