Guest Drivers (up to 8 posts)
Mid June to late June, including the Festival dates. Up to 8 full-time posts.
Guest Drivers provide a friendly and efficient service to Festival guests and delegates; mainly driving between Edinburgh airport/train station and Festival venues, and on occasion to Glasgow and other UK cities.
Must be an experienced driver, over 25 years for insurance purposes, with finely tuned customer service skills and a great timekeeper. You are part chauffeur, part EIFF ambassador and often the first and last face the guests see during their visit so it is of key importance that you are able to maintain a friendly manner at all times. Festival guests include filmmakers, jurors, industry professionals and press.
It helps if you're interested in filmmaking and filmmakers when it comes to getting up in the morning for those 6am airport pickups.
