Accessible Events are looking for fun and enthusiastic Access Team Volunteers for Wilderness 2020.
WHAT IS ACCESSIBILITY –
The Accessibility Team are responsible for making sure that all deaf and disabled customers have an enjoyable experience whilst at the event.
Team members will get a unique insight into how accessibility is approached and dealt with at Wilderness. It will allow individuals a basic understanding of the Attitude is Everything Charter of Best Practice which is now considered to be the standard across the music industry. This year Wilderness are working towards Silver.
In order to help us achieve this, we need committed, focussed individuals who work well on their own as well as part of a team. The role incorporates a variety of tasks and the ability to be flexible with a smile. It is aimed at anyone who is interested in working in the events industry, or those who would like to dedicate their time and skills in exchange for a ticket to a show.
