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!

At Volunteer Now we have recruited and trained volunteers for a range of events including the 2013 World Police and Fire Games, the 2014 Big Start Giro d'Italia, the 2015 Irish Open and Tall Ships Festival and the 2016 BBC Good Food Show.

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

This is what our events volunteers have to say about their experience;

“I love the chance to give something back and love meeting new people.”

“Volunteering has made me a better person.”

“As a volunteer ambassador at the Giro and Gran Fondo I had a chance to showcase Northern Ireland. I was delighted to learn that Italian tourists to NI rose by 12% in the wake of the Giro. It was lovely to make a positive use of my previous skills set!”

“Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to share and learn. I just love it!
