VOLUNTEERS (All teams)
Registration Desk Volunteers (13 posts)
This position is being shortlisted or has been filled, and is therefore not open for applications.
2 weeks in June, including the Festival period plus training. 13 full-time posts.
Part of the Industry team, this is a front line role, welcoming and facilitating all EIFF's filmmaker & press guests, our film industry delegates and our accredited press visitors. This desk is an information service for them all so you’ll need to be good at retaining information.
To volunteer here you need to be a team player with a very good customer service ethic, be computer literate, punctual, patient and ideally have a good knowledge of Edinburgh. Experience of using credit card machines is advantageous.
The desk is based in the Festival's Delegate Centre however there may also be occasions where you will be temporarily based at the airport or train station to welcome all our visitors and direct them to their transportation.
A passion for films and the people who make them happen is essential. If you've waited for long hours and kept a smile on your face, you can handle this. Oh and there's lots of photocopying too.
The desk is normally open between the hours of 8.30am and 6pm with shifts normally lasting around 5 hours per day.
You will also be available to help at the Delegate Centre on 11th June after the All Staff Induction and on 27th June before the Staff Party.
