Paramount to the success of Scapa Fest, volunteers ensure the smooth running of the venue and our programme. Scapa Fest is more akin to a camp than a festival, and as a 100% leave no trace outdoor event, we naturally look for individuals with experience in responsible outdoor living rather than festival experience. Exceptional people skills, resourcefulness and common sense make you the ideal candidate.
In exchange for one full day of volunteering (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday), you receive access to the event and to all the activities on the programme.
We ask for a deposit of £150 to show your commitment, which we refund at the end of the event, unless you cancel without good notice or you don’t show up. Deposits is standard procedure for all the festivals we know. We have had problems with volunteers not turning up – this causes many difficulties for the remaining volunteers and the supervisors.
Please remember you are representing Scapa Fest and the venue whilst you are volunteering for us.
Once you have been accepted as a volunteer, you will then be asked to pay the deposit through Paypal to confirm your space on the volunteer team. The deposit will be refunded to you (minus £5 for administration costs - £145) after the event and once you have completed your allocated day.
Once accepted and your deposit has been received, you will be added to our dedicated facebook group. You will receive weekly email to confirm your place on the team. Failure to confirm will result on your access to the event withdrawn and your deposit will not be refunded.
You will receive your schedule 3 weeks before the event.
Thanks again for your time and interest in becoming part of the Scapa Life!
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS MARCH 28TH, 2020.
