What will I be doing?

Successful applicants will take on highly responsible roles and gain experience in course, start, finish, stage, obstacles, and volunteer management:

  • Obstacle Manager – overseeing the set up of Pretty Muddy obstacles, working with risk assessments, briefing, and managing volunteers as well as liaising with suppliers and ensuring the safe monitoring of obstacles during the event. 

  • Start & Finish Manager – setting up and managing the start and finish lines for events. Managing volunteers, liaising with suppliers, managing late starters and being responsible for the overall running of the start/finish area. 

  • Stage Manager – working closely with PA companies, hosts, and warm up providers to run the stage content to time and keeping to script. 

  • Volunteer Manager – signing in, briefing, and looking after large groups of volunteers on the day. Ensuring they have all the information they need, are thanked, and welcomed back after completing their role and monitoring their welfare throughout the event. 

As well as the above, there are opportunities to work at some of our third-party partner events delivering post-race support and stewardship or leading a group of volunteers at a cheer point. You will become part of a dedicated events team who are experts in their field, have great fun, develop, and deliver inspiring events which bring together communities, survivors and those who have been touched by cancer.
