Current opportunity

Are you a dedicated and organised person, passionate about helping others? Join our night-time party and lots of other volunteers at The MoonWalk Scotland on Saturday 7th September 2024 from Holyrood Park, Edinburgh! Bring your energy and by helping the thousands of women and men, walking an overnight marathon in decorated bras, raising lots of money for breast cancer! We recruit hundreds of Volunteers to make The MoonWalk a safe and enjoyable event; looking after our Walkers as they take to the streets of Edinburgh overnight, and above all giving them the encouragement they need to complete their epic challenge. Join in the party atmosphere in Dynamic Earth on Saturday Evening, with help needed from around 6 PM through till midnight. A busy period when our Walkers and Volunteers arrive en masse, from litter picking, to registering baggage, to handing out Volunteer uniforms or help managing the queues of excited Walkers, there is so much to get involved in! The Night-Time is where the challenge really gets going for our amazing Walkers. If you like the nightlife, marshalling, or giving out water whilst surrounded by Edinburgh’s famous landmarks, this could be for you! Start times vary between 8 PM and midnight, depending on your role, and last on average 8 hours. We can also offer site-based roles at MoonWalk Arena throughout the night. Early finishes can of course be requested. Finally, the early morning team take the helm on Sunday Morning, starting between 5-6 AM until midday. Watching the sunrise against an Edinburgh skyline is quite a sight to see! This truly is the most testing time for our Walkers… whether you join the route or MoonWalk Arena teams… your kind and motivating words could be all that is needed to get someone across that finish line! On the night you will be provided with training, a t-shirt, cap and free light refreshments. All roles will develop teamwork and confidence, no matter what you do on the night… so why not bring your friends and family along to share this unique experience! So, what are you waiting for?! Join us for a truly remarkable experience at our Fabulous MoonWalk Fiesta and helps us give breast cancer the push!
