Work With Us

Work with us

Every Summer Big Green Coach needs help from enthusiastic people of all ages that want to work in the events industry.

Would you like to volunteer for a few hours work in return for a festival ticket? Or prefer paid work for a couple of days at events? Often you will simply oversee arrivals and departures at festivals, leaving you to enjoy the whole experience free of charge. Anyone over the age of 18 can apply, solo or with your friends, and you get to choose the events you work at.

What do you need to apply?
Applying is simple, but hurry – it’s popular! Simply follow this link and create a profile – you’ll be guided through each step of the application and it will only take about 15 minutes to complete. Have your right-to-work documents ready to upload, along with National Insurance number, contact details, and emergency contact details.

What’s the pay like?
It varies according to the event and level of responsibilities, and we’ll explain at the time of your application.

Can I choose the festival or event type?
Yes, it is completely up to you, meaning that roles can be flexible around uni and work schedules. We have some people volunteering or working at one event per season, whereas others will opt for 10 events or more.

Hours of work
For paid work, this varies depending on the event but will be displayed on the event during the application. For volunteers it is only around 12 hours in total, split over two days and is usually not when any music is playing, so you shouldn’t miss a thing! Again, this information will be displayed on the event during the application.

Is food, drink, travel and entry for the event included?
If you are volunteering as a coach rep, travel to and from the event via coach is included. At every event, water and snacks are provided, and at some there is lunch too. If you are volunteering you will get entry into the entire event, as well as access to staff camping (if applicable) and often a parking pass or campervan pass if required.

For paid work each event differs, and this information is displayed on the event page during application.

What volunteer roles are available?
Big Green Coach offers two volunteer roles, Transport Steward and Coach Rep.

Transport Steward:
You will be volunteering on-site alongside the Big Green Coach management team. Your responsibilities will be to meet and greet coaches/customers, answer any questions, inform customers how to get into the event, make sure they know where to go for the return journey, help unload/load luggage, and be a friendly face.

Coach Rep:
You will be meeting the coach at one of the popular departure points, plus greeting customers, checking tickets, helping to load/unload luggage, and answering any questions. When the coach is ready to depart you will board and travel to the event. Once you have arrived you will be helping to unload the rest of the coaches. Then you are free to go off and enjoy the event and come back on departure today. Then it’s time to help load the coaches with customers/luggage and when the coach is ready to depart you will board and travel back to your original destination.

Can I work/ volunteer with my friends or family?
Yes, groups are welcome! You can email us at [email protected] once you have been accepted onto an event and let us know who you plan to volunteer/work with we will try to place you all on the same shifts.

If I am volunteering do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes, we ask for a deposit of £100 for all events apart from Boomtown where the amount is £200. You will get this back after the event as long as you have completed all your shifts.
