Job Description

Volunteers needed for Oxfam Trailwalker 2020!

Oxfam Trailwalker (March 20th – 22nd) is the ultimate team challenge that changes lives. We simply could not run Oxfam Trailwalker without the help of our wonderful volunteers.

If you’re not ready to walk 50km or 100km, volunteering is an excellent way to be a part of Oxfam Trailwalker and help our mission to end the injustice of poverty. You will be making a difference, helping out at Oxfam’s biggest fundraising event, supporting more than 1,000 participants to reach the finish line, while at the same time meeting new people, learning more about Oxfam and about the back scenes of such large scale events.

We are looking to fill a range of positions during the event weekend in March 20th – 22nd. This includes helping with logistics, participant registration, the running of the Start and the Finish Line, as well as working on parts of the trail.

In return you will receive an Oxfam Trailwalker Volunteer gift pack and a volunteer certificate. Plus, the experience of being part of the largest team challenge in New Zealand!

Ideally you will be friendly, flexible and confident to work outside. Volunteers will report to the Oxfam Trailwalker Volunteer Coordinator or the site manager of their shift. Shifts run all through the event weekend, and are between 5-8 hours long. Any specific equipment and/ or training required for your chosen role will be provided.

Key roles:
• Registration support
• Courier
• Trail Marshal
• Jet Boat Support
• Finish Line Host
• Finish Line Team Caller
• Finish MC/DJ and Assistant

Each shift is 5-8 hours long. You can select more than one shift (just make sure you have a reasonable break in between! (To go to the beach, have a nap etc!). Shifts start from Friday 20th Evening (Registration) through to Sunday Afternoon/Evening. There are a range of shift times, during the day and night. Pick what one/s suit you – get in quick!
