People enjoying our community festival in 2017

Following the huge success of last year’s first ever University-wide Community Festival, we are looking for staff and students to be involved in this year’s event on Saturday, 16 June 2018.

As part of our commitment to enhancing our relationship with members of our local communities, we held our first University-wide Community Festival in June last year with nearly 2,000 visitors coming along to find out more about our work, have fun and try out some of our activities. This year’s Festival will be on Saturday, 16 June 2018 from 11am-4pm centred round Manchester Museum, University Place and Bridgeford Street.

As a Community Festival Ambassadors you will provide a friendly, positive and knowledgeable welcome to all our visitors, provide information and signpost people to activities, and help with the setting up and taking down of the event.

You do not need to be available all day, specific time slots can be agreed but we would ask for a commitment of at least four hours. You will be fully briefed and you would be expected to attend one of the briefing meetings prior to the event. A light lunch will be provided on the day.

If you are interested in taking part and can spare some time between 9am and 5pm on Saturday, 16 June 2018, contact:

Please speak to your line manager about the policy and arrangement for working at weekends.
