Work with us

There are a number of short term, one off positions available at our upcoming event at the Norfolk Showground. I am in need of the following paid employees below for Saturday 14th September, Sunday 15th or both. You need to provide references for these positions.

There are some paid jobs for teenagers aged 13 - 16. These specific jobs have restricted hours due to employment law. If you do two hours of paid work you are welcome to stay and enjoy the event for the rest of the day. You need to provide a reference from a teacher, social worker, previous volunteering or group leader (such as scouts, or youth club).

I am also looking for a number of unpaid volunteers throughout the day. This whole event is a fundraiser for my new community craft hub, a free craft and wellbeing centre for teenagers in Norwich. If you do not have any previous work experience or references this could be a good place to get them. Volunteer positions are open to people 13 and over and if you would like to volunteer please email me and tell me a little bit about yourself. You can volunteer for as little as 2 hours and up to 8 if over 16. Unpaid volunteers doing at least 2 hours will get a lunch voucher for one of our onsite caterers.

Finally, we have a couple of spots available on our acoustic music line up. If you are a singer or acoustic musician please get in touch.
