Deadline: 6 February 2020

Paisley Book Festival is looking for enthusiastic and committed volunteers to join the festival between 20-29 February.

The inaugural Paisley Book Festival will bring some of Scotland’s best literary talent to Paisley to take part in more than 50 events on the theme of Radical Voices and Rebel Stories. With Paisley Arts Centre as its hub, the festival will also hold events in the Piazza Shopping Centre, Paisley Central Library, the Lagoon Leisure Centre and a variety of cafes and bars around Paisley.

The Festival is looking to recruit a range of voluntary roles:

  • Welcome Host
  • Social Media/Marketing Assistant
  • General Runner
  • Marketing Street Team

While volunteering as part of Paisley Book Festival you will have the opportunity to gain new skills in events administration, enhance your CV, develop marketing skills, and have the opportunity to interact with both participants and attendees.

They would like volunteers to commit to 4-hour shifts between 10am–10pm, with a minimum of 4 shifts over the 10 days of the Festival. In the run-up to the festival, they will be holding a one day training session for all festival staff and volunteers, so you need to be available on 7 February 2020.

If you're over 16 and would like to register your interest, please contact Anne Kemp, Volunteer Coordinator on email: [email protected] or tel: 07833 239589.
