Volunteering at Events

Welcome to Volunteer Now Event Volunteering!

There are lots of large and small events and festivals across Northern Ireland looking for volunteers. Being an Event Volunteer you can see behind the scenes at events, get closer to the action and play a role in making the event possible.

Event Volunteering offers you:

  • access to a diverse range of events;
  • access to training and orientation sessions;
  • skill development;
  • long term recognition;
  • volunteer gatherings;
  • lots of fun!

Over the last seven years we have had the Olympic Games, Derry/Londonderry City of Culture, World Police and Fire Games, Giro D’Italia, Tall Ships, Gran Fondo, Irish Open Golf Championship and countless other key events that couldn’t happen without the involvement of volunteers.

Event volunteers get involved in a variety of roles such as Ambassador, Meet & Greet, Marshalling, Team Leader, Logistics, Event Control Scribes, Admin, Surveying, Driving, Photography and Media.

This is what our events volunteers said about their experiences last year;

“This experience has truly been a great one. I have learned so much about myself and that I am able to work with such a diverse pool of people and provide a world class service for the visitors to Northern Ireland. I have developed a real sense of pride in Northern Ireland.”

“I was a little dubious about being involved in volunteering, as I wasn't sure how efficiently the event was run, especially on such a large scale ... I found the whole experience excellent and I did feel I sold Northern Ireland and that was my goal. I met new people and enjoyed the experience of volunteering, my only regret is I didn't start this 10 years ago!”

“I felt proud to be a part of the Irish Open team when the commentator on Sky Sports said the park and ride and the staffing of them was excellent and should be copied for all major events.”

“To sum up my experience I would say, a few hours volunteering a lifetime of memories!”
