SJE Volunteer Steward

We are looking for stewards and first aiders to join the SJE family and assist with the delivery of front-of-house operations. Stewards are very much at the heart of the SJE team, responsible for welcoming and looking after our audiences.

Core tasks (volunteers can opt in or out of any of the following):

  • Box office: checking and selling tickets, selling programmes and CDs for performers
  • Ushering: welcoming visitors to the venue, assisting with seat allocations and general queries from the public
  • Bar: selling drinks/snacks
  • Health and safety: in an event emergency, helping to evacuate the venue
  • Assisting with clearing up after the concert
  • First aid (qualification needed)

Benefits: SJE Volunteer Stewards are seated and able to watch the performance for free, plus they receive occasional invitations to concerts and are invited to volunteer parties and events. They are usually required for 3-4 hours per concert.
