Be a Concierge at Electric Picnic
31st August - 3rd September 2017
Concierges will have varied roles at Electric Picnic, depending on the day and time of your shifts. For all roles, you need to be friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. You need to be willing to approach people to offer the service, and happy to tell them all about the wonderful work that Child.org does.
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
At Electric Picnic we will be offering the waiter service, so as a concierge you will be roaming the main arena and get people drinks from the bar, skipping the queue.
As a team leader, you’ll be responsible for a team of up to ten concierges, making sure everyone knows what they are doing, that they are being the best Concierges they can be, and that if anything goes wrong, a member of Child.org staff knows about it straight away. If you're interested, just tick the box on the registration form and we'll be in touch.
WHEN DO YOU NEED ME?
At Electric Picnic, we will need you onsite by 6pm on Thursday 31st August. This will give you time to get set up and signed in in time for the vital briefing and social activities later that evening.
The shifts are between 3 and 6 hours long, and on one of the days we'll make sure you finish by 4pm so that you have plenty of time off to enjoy the festival! The last shift will finish at 9pm on Sunday 3rd September, so you're free to leave any time after this.
In the case of sickness or other unforeseen circumstances we might also ask for a bit of extra help, so we do ask for some flexibility to make the service run as well as is possible!
WILL IT COST ME ANYTHING?
Although we will provide you with a ticket, uniform and everything you need for your shift, there are costs involved with going to any festival which you must be aware of:
You will be required to pay a fully refundable deposit of £75 (about EU90) when you register. This secures us against people who want the free ticket but aren't planning to do the work. If you fail to attend all of your shifts without a good reason (e.g. sickness, with a note from the medical centre), or if you are ejected from site by security or the Charity Concierge team, you will lose this deposit and a further £115 (about EU140). For more information see the FAQs.
Travel to and from the festival will be your own responsibility. We will do everything we can to help you to organise it and give you all the information you need, however any costs will be down to you.
Food and drink at the festival.
We will provide you with your Concierge T-Shirt, however we ask that you bring your own black trousers/skirts/leggings or other variation of black bottom-half attire to go with this.
You will also need to provide your own tent and festival gear (wellies, warm jumpers, waterproofs etc. - we’ll give you a full list closer to the time).
Concierges will be serving alcohol at the events, therefore you must be over the age of 18 on the starting date of the event. Please do not register if you will not be 18 at this time.
More information about your specific shifts, what to do when you arrive onsite, the camping arrangements and what to bring with you will be released closer to the festival. If you have any questions not related to these things, you can get in touch with Holly on 07751 768207 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
