Location: Farringdon, London
You’ll be an essential part of Challenge Events Team helping them to achieve a successful 2017 events calendar. There are plenty of tasks for you to get stuck into and exciting events to help organise. Their events runners and cyclists are like the gifts that keep on giving, all the money they raise helps to save children’s lives. That’s why it’s really important we show how much we appreciate them, so they keep on giving and signing up to events. So, you’ll be checking in with them by phone or email to see how their training is going, giving them plenty of encouragement and thanking them for their hard work and support.
Having volunteers to cheer at events is vital and really helps to motivate and inspire the runners and cyclists to keep on going. You’ll be recruiting volunteers to cheer at events such as Great North Run, RideLondon-Surrey 100 and Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon. These events are always popular so, you’ll be busy with people wanting to volunteer. There’s all the admin stuff too like answering emails, letters and phone enquiries and making sure the database is up to-date.
It would be great if you could spare 1-2 days a week (office hours) in our Farringdon office. You’ll also have the opportunity to help out at the events, it’s not essential, but, we think you’ll really enjoy being there on the day, soaking up the atmosphere and its always good fun! If you enjoy talking to and motivating people and getting involved then this is the role for you.
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis through the year, as opportunities arise.
