When Red, Go Green – Volunteer Events Assistant

Ricefield Art’s When Red, Go Green Climate Change project started in May 2018 when Ricefield received funding from the Climate Challenge Fund. The project aims to increase climate change awareness and encourage sustainable living within our Glasgow community.

We are now looking for a voluntary Event Assistant to support the When Red, Go Green events. Our events include various workshops, meetings, pop up swap shops, climate change gatherings, talks and one off events. There is also a possibility to support all of Ricefield Art’s other events including our Chinese New Year at Kelvin Hall and our events for the Glasgow Mela / Glasgow Canal Festival.

Tasks may include: Assisting in creation of event concepts, supporting pre & post event admin / logistics, preparing event kits, assisting marketing activities, supporting event attendees at events, assisting with workshop leader / artist / performer liaison, supporting attendee data gathering and other reasonable duties, dependent on the interests of the volunteer.

The role suits someone with excellent communication and organisation skills with a flexible approach to getting tasks done. We ideally seek someone with experience in supporting the organisation of events although training will be provided to the right candidate who has no experience. Although not necessary an awareness / interest in climate change would be advantageous.

This is a part time role which is based out of our office in the Baltic Chambers, Glasgow city centre. Flexible hours and completing tasks from home are options.

Please email your CV and a short paragraph explaining why you would like to be considered for this role to lindsey@ricefield.org.uk by 5pm Friday 2nd November.
