About the role

Course marshals are the eyes and ears of the event and where required, you will need to relay information back to event staff and notify participants of any issues/changes. You may also need to provide participants with basic event information e.g. location of the next toilets.

We’re after bubbly, friendly people who work well in a team. You’ll need to be proactive and quick to respond. This position will involve standing for extended periods of time.
