Big Bang North West 2020 – Be a Volunteer!
This year’s Big Bang North West will take place at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool on 7th of July 2020. Our exhibitors, sponsors and presenters are planning lots of exciting and inspirational hands-on activities & shows. It’s shaping up to be an amazing event!
However, the day wouldn’t be half as successful without the team of fantastic volunteers who give up their time to help support the event. We’re looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals to come and be part of the team that will deliver the Big Bang North West 2020.
We ask that all volunteers are over 18 and, ideally, have a relevant DBS certificate. This a perfect role for STEM Ambassadors and could also make a great company volunteering day for a group of staff.
There are various roles available:
Role 1: General Volunteers
General Volunteers will provide a range of support for the event by helping with:
- staffing the Info Point
- providing general information & direction to visitors
- supporting visitors in engaging with the activities
- supporting the arrival & departure of visitors to the site
Our General Volunteers are the backbone of our event. They are the front-facing, tone-setting, atmosphere-creating stars of the show! They are our foot soldiers and our first line of defence! They play a crucial role in ensuring our visitors experience an inspiring, safe and smoothly-run event. As a General Volunteer, you’ll get to experience the Show Floor but you’ll also need to be willing to do some less inspiring jobs like queue management too! Don’t worry though, our volunteer rota will ensure that you get a mix of experiences throughout the day. Wear comfortable shoes and get a good night’s sleep the day before; it’s busy, busy, busy!
Role 2: Registration Team Volunteers
Registration Team Volunteers will be responsible for dealing with the arrival of exhibitors and visitors. If you’re an early-bird, enjoy a bit of spreadsheet admin and could welcome our visitors with a smile despite working under pressure, this is the role for you! You’ll be working in pairs so it’s a nice role for a couple of friends.
With so many visitors, registration is always busy. We’re looking for some super volunteers to help us manage this challenge!
Your role on the registration desk will be to:
- mark the arrival of exhibitors, schools, competition entrants and VIP guests
- provide visitors with security wristbands/lanyards
- direct exhibitors to their stand number
- provide relevant information to the various categories of attendee
- work really quickly to get everyone one into the event as soon as possible!
Role 3: Competition Judges
We are also recruiting Competition Judges to support the Big Bang Competition. We’re looking for experts from across a range of disciplines, to judge students’ project work that will be being exhibited on the day. If this is something you would like to help with, please contact [email protected]
Lunch will be provided on the day for General Volunteers, the Registration Team and Judges but, unfortunately we are unable to provide travel/parking expenses.« Back To News
