One of the most important ingredients of any GERMAN COMIC CON event are our volunteers. We are always searching for new crew, and where experience with any type of event or convention is a useful bonus, the most important quality we’re looking for is enthusiasm!
There are many jobs you could be asked to do including,
1. Virtual Queue Ticketing (handing out the virtual numbers and letting people into queues)
2. Autographs Sales Staff (handling sales of autographs, photo shoots, talk ticket and credit card vouchers to public)
3. Organiser's Booth Staff (dealing with public enquiries and sales)
4. General Runner (guest food/drink orders and other miscellaneous tasks)
5. Guest Assistant (sitting with guests, dealing with the public etc)
6. Front Door Staff (selling entry tickets, helping the public enter and leave the event).
We don't generally give people a specific job to do until the day and over the weekend you could end up doing a bit of everything.
We expect Volunteers to do just that, volunteer, so please have no expectations, just be ready to muck in. Like many other jobs, there may be hours of boredom interspaced with frenetic activity, or more likely hours of frenetic activity with a few seconds of boredom; either way is tough.
It’s hard work but many of our volunteers return year after year and become good friends.
Once we have received your initial request to crew you’ll be kept on the crew database, and before each event we send out an email to all volunteers asking if they are available to help at that particular show. Please read the email carefully and respond to the survey by the deadline date.
Please note: All volunteers must be 18 years of age or over.
CREW APPLICATIONS: When you’ve done the survey, and the crew application deadline has passed, we then go through the days available and work out the crew rota. You will then receive another email once this is done letting you know if you have been chosen or not. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t been selected, it could be for a number of reasons; generally because we have had loads of applications, or we don’t have the days/spaces to suit what you can do at that particular show. There’s always next time, and the helper applications are still open until a week before the show!
If you’re interested in volunteering as a crew member, we’d love to hear from you.
