Dundee City Council's Volunteer Hub is run by both the Resilience and Events Teams. We are currently looking to recruit a large number of volunteers for public events or during times of emergency. The hub allows you to register as a Dundee City Council volunteer and offer your support in times of emergency and for events run by Dundee City Council.
Event volunteering roles are suited to people who enjoy working outdoors and are confident speaking to the public. You will be supported by a wider event team, who will carry out training and briefings ahead of the event. A supervisor will be on hand to coordinate your training, breaks, and refreshments, along with answering any questions you may have on the day.
We are currently looking for people to volunteer their time in helping us provide critical support in times of emergency and major incidents. The specific roles being filled may vary due to the nature of the incident, however, as a volunteer, you would likely be asked to:
Provide help to people in need of temporary shelter and other supports
Provide support to people stuck on roads
Act as a steward during civic and cultural events.
To sign up for these unique and important tasks please register for a volunteer account via Dundee City Council's Volunteer Hub - https://dundeecityvolunteers.co.uk/index-classic.
Once you have registered for a volunteer account you will be able to view details of any requests for support when emergency incidents occur or events are planned. Volunteering opportunities will also be automatically texted or emailed to you when they arise, and you can choose whether you are able to support them or not. You do not need to accept every time, your details will stay registered on the hub until you unsubscribe.
The Events Team work towards making Dundee a vibrant and exciting place to live, work and study by supporting a range of events across the City. The Events Team are responsible for delivering Dundee City Council events including Easter Fun Day, Summer Streets Festival, Fireworks displays and Christmas Light Nights. We also work closely with external event organisers to support and advise them to deliver events.
Experience required: We’re looking for friendly and approachable people, who are adaptable to various situations and ready to show Dundee’s cooperative spirit in helping others.
Training details: All training, guidance, and support will be given at the time.
