Did you know that Manchester International Festival are recruiting volunteers for this years event?

Would you like to be a part of one of the world’s most dynamic and adventurous cultural festivals?
MIF couldn’t run without the dedication, energy and enthusiasm of many amazing volunteers.
MIF19 saw 507 volunteers get involved, from helping out with preparations to greeting the public at events. Our diverse and supportive community of volunteers are one of our greatest assets – passionate about the arts, the Festival and our city.
Why volunteer?
Volunteering is a great way to connect with the Festival and the city. Whether you are looking for an opportunity to get behind the scenes of the Festival, meet an amazing group of people, gain customer service skills for the workplace, or just do something different and fun.
Other benefits include invites to special events, MIF volunteer clothing and rucksack, and (dependant on availability) ticket offers and discounts.
MIF reimburses all reasonable, out of pocket expenses relating to travel, subsistence and access requirements for people taking part in our volunteering programme.
To register your interest in volunteering at MIF21 , visit this link to read more and create a profile on our Volunteer Hub.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 29 April.
For anyone who has talked to our Neighbourhood Organisers you have a special Priority Join Code: NORTHMANCHESTER
After that, we will arrange virtual and in person socially distant meeting days, where you can meet current MIF volunteers and ask any questions that you want of them and the Volunteering Team.
Confirmation of places will begin in April/May and will be subject to the changing COVID-19 situation.
