published: Fri 1st Oct 2010

Information on any jobs available at the festival (that we hear of) will be posted onto this page.

Stewarding with Oxfam
Oxfam provide stewards to the Festival, in exchange for donations from the Festival to help their work.
They recruit mainly from past stewards and Oxfam supporters. If there are any places available for 2011, they will be advertised on the Oxfam Website from February 2011. Each steward is required to work 3 x 8 hour shifts, which could be at any point from the Wednesday until the Sunday. Each steward has to pay in advance for their ticket, which is refunded providing the shifts have been completed.
For more information, and to download application forms, see the Oxfam website.

Other Stewarding
Green Stewards provide voluntary stewards at places like the perimeter fence towers who work shifts of six (and a bit) hours for a free ticket (a deposit is paid) and are fed usually one meal per shift.

Oasis Carnival Club recruit stewards to work before, after and during the Festival.

Festive Lizards Trust recruit for stewards and coach park workers.

Chameleon Trust recruit for stewards and coach park workers.

Car Parking Staff
These are employed from the Sunday before until the Monday after the Festival, with staff working a minimum of four 12 hour shifts. See http://www.cashandtrafficmanagement.com.

Gate Staff
Stuart Security stewarding, traffic management and crowd control.

Bar Staff
Workers Beer run the on-site bars. If you are a Trade Union member, you can apply for bar work with them, in return for access to the Festival. WBC does not deal with private individuals, and tying to join a official WBC Group is not easy if you don't have a connection to someone who is already a member of a WBC Team/Group, or trade union connections. Shelter may be running some of the smaller bars.

Medical Staff
Festival Medical Services provide the on-site medical care.

Campervan and caravan fields Staff
DC Site Services employ staff to assist with running the campervan and caravan fields. They also supply checkers at vehicle gates .

Litter picking
These are recruited by the Festival approaching people who have worked successfully before. It is anticipated that in 2011 vacancies will be largely filled from existing contacts.

Property Lock-ups
These are run by various peace and environmental groups such as CND, staffed by their members.

Campsite Wardens
These are recruited from various local groups, to raise funds for those groups.

Market Traders
These are staffed directly by the traders themselves.

Please Note: only persons aged 18 or over are likely to be considered for any jobs at the Festival, due to insurance, and Health and Safety considerations.
