Join Team Pride!
Volunteer for Belfast Pride 2019.
Belfast Pride is a community effort – thousand of volunteer hours go in to making Pride happen. It’s your festival and it’s time to play your part!
Team Pride members get involved for a whole variety of reasons: to make a stand for Equality, to give back to the community, to gain new skills and experience and to make new friends. You should be committed to making Belfast Pride the best it can be and be ready to do some work. Pride is built on action.
We all want to help create the biggest, best and most inclusive celebration of the LGBT+ community in Belfast and we never lose sight of that.
Volunteering with Team Pride:
- A Unique experience – we deliver a European level Pride that is still firmly grounded in our community;
- Rewarding – gain and develop valuable transferable skills and see your work help build the festival.
- A great team – we work hard to make everyone feel part of the Team and we want to make sure that Team Pride fully reflects the LGBT+ community in Belfast.
Types of Roles for Volunteers:
- Events Crew
- Events Management
- Parade Stewards
- Social Media
- Finance and Administration
- Management and Supervision
If there is anything else that you could bring to Belfast Pride it would be great to hear from you!
For Management and Supervision roles we ask that you have already completed one year of volunteering with Belfast Pride – there’s a lot to learn and we want to do it right.
What we ask of you:
Belfast Pride features some major events including the events of Pride Day and many roles will involve a degree of responsibility in crowd management, keeping people safe and ensuring events go smoothly. It takes work to deliver Pride but it’s always a team effort. We are required to employ a large, professional security team to take the lead in crowd safety, so you’ll be kept safe too. There will be a lot going on and lot to do, if a quieter event would suit better then just let us know and we’ll sort that.
Take a role: We aim to match people to the right role and an application and selection process helps us do this. The range of roles means that we can build a really diverse team and there should be something to suit you and to help make Pride happen. There are roles for everyone, if you have a disability or a condition that affects how you can volunteer, we will work to find a role that suits you. There are also office based roles throughout the festival including on Pride Day for anyone that this might suit better.
Time : You need to be free to volunteer for Belfast Pride during Pride itself – this includes working for Belfast Pride across the whole of Pride Day from the parade set up and build up to the end of the Party in the Square at Custom House Square and Pride Village. It’s the biggest day of the festival and a major crowd safety operation and we want to make sure it represents our community as best it can. You also need to be available for at least one other main event and attend compulsory Belfast Pride Training and Team Briefings. It’s all about making Belfast Pride happen, so you need to meet this requirement.
