What roles are available?
Being a steward is the best way to see as much of HowTheLightGetsIn as possible whilst being instrumental in the smooth-running of the festival. A steward’s role is by far the most varied, covering a range of responsibilities from managing queues and crowds to working the box office or turning over venues between events.
You will rotate around the site on each shift to ensure you get the full experience of the festival and you will even be given the opportunity to make requests on a first come first served basis of where you would like to work on the day. You’ll gain a thorough understanding of the inner workings of a festival, whilst being immersed in all the wonderful events HowTheLightGetsIn has to offer.
Over the 2 day festival you will work one 5-6 hour shift each day, these shifts will be between the hours of 8am - 11:30pm. Steward training will be held on Friday the 22nd on site. Please note that accommodation is not provided.
What skills would I need?
Our stewards need to be reliable, responsible, and friendly. We’re looking for applicants who are confident engaging with lots of people, and are on-the-ball and alert. Experience stewarding at other events is preferable but not necessary.
