Liverpool Irish Festival is proud to work with volunteers. Our volunteers help us talk about the festival, give our audiences a great experience and help our venues in delivering a wide variety of activities and shows, ensuring each is of great quality and enjoyable.

If the idea of joining our volunteer team appeals to you, please read our volunteer information pack, using this link.

It contains all you need to know (initially, at least!) about volunteering with us and it contains a link to a short, online application form.

The form is split in to sections. Initially it takes you through eligibility questions, so that if you are ineligible, we don’t waste your time collecting details we will not be able to use. Then we require:

  • your contact details
  • an emergency contact
  • a bit on why you want to volunteer with the Liverpool Irish Festival and how you found out about the opportunity
  • your medical history (only aspects that may affect your ability to perform volunteer duties)
  • equality monitoring
  • two referees you will allow us to approach.

Monitoring questions about gender, ethnicity, nationality and age are important for us to share with our stakeholders and funders to demonstrate how we work equitably with our communities. We have tried to make this as easy to complete as possible and although these sections will not be used as part of your recruitment they are essential for us to build evidence about our working practices, so please complete as much as you can. You will not be able to move on to the next question unless an answer is complete.

Our original deadline for 2017 applications was Sun 24 Sept 2017. This is now being extended to Mon 2 Oct 2017 and this date, posted here, supercedes all dates in the following material. Thank you in advance.

You are not able to access the form, unless you open the PDF.
