Team Leaders

Roughly put, being a team leader for our event means you’ll be the main link between your team of 5-7 people and the event managers. Your responsibilities may vary, depends on the situation you and your team have to deal with. To say team leaders are the “bosses” of their groups is an overstatement – team leaders’ main characteristics are fairness and patience and last but not least, being a helpful hand to all in need. If you enjoy working both externally (with us) and internally (with your team) on a greater level, please do apply – your skills and knowledge will be greatly appreciated.

Nature of Work

There are going to be 5 working days in total, but you can, of course, choose on which days you are willing to participate.

14.05. and 15.05 are so called “Set up” days, which means these are the days we will be giving our maximum amount of effort to prepare everything so that things can run smoothly throughout the event. Those who decide to apply for this position will be fairly distributed among the other 3 days, meaning you will most likely be free and on standby the two following days. (standby = maybe we call you in for a quick hand)

16.05, 17.05. and 18.05. are for the working bees the craziest dates, but also the most fun and exciting, with the most opportunity to learn a great deal. You will be assigned to specific areas in the Venue where we expect for things to go without any problems, however your time will be carefully planned out so that you can also enjoy yourself and have free time to explore.
