What we ask of you:

Belfast Pride features some major events including the events of Pride Day and many roles will involve a degree of responsibility in crowd management, keeping people safe and ensuring events go smoothly. It takes work to deliver Pride but it’s always a team effort. We are required to employ a large, professional security team to take the lead in crowd safety, so you’ll be kept safe too. There will be a lot going on and lot to do, if a quieter event would suit better then just let us know and we’ll sort that.

Take a role: We aim to match people to the right role and an application and selection process helps us do this. The range of roles means that we can build a really diverse team and there should be something to suit you and to help make Pride happen. There are roles for everyone, if you have a disability or a condition that affects how you can volunteer, we will work to find a role that suits you. There are also office based roles throughout the festival including on Pride Day for anyone that this might suit better.
