Join the Team

Want to volunteer to help make ConFuzzled what it is? You can!

Yes that’s right, ConFuzzled needs YOU! We couldn’t make ConFuzzled what it is without the help of a dedicated team of people working behind the scenes to bring the convention together and make the magic happen!

ConFuzzled is constantly expanding, and as such we are looking for hard working volunteers to fill our vacant crew positions. This is in the teams that help make ConFuzzled a friendly and enjoyable convention for attendees and staff. Working for the convention is fun, enjoyable work and doesn’t need to be time intensive, even if you can only offer a few hours a week or can only offer us assistance at the convention itself, we may have a spot for you.

Please provide as much information as you can on this application form so that we can make an informed decision regarding your application to work with ConFuzzled. Once your application has been submitted, it will be reviewed by our team and we’ll get back to you with feedback as soon as possible. Please note that due to the volume of applications received and the time it takes to review each one, this may take a number of weeks before you hear from us.

If you are interested in joining the team then please fill in our application form which includes a list of the key areas we’re currently looking for additional people to help us out – that said we are always interested in volunteers in all areas so even if the area you’re interested in isn’t listed, please fill out the form and include details in your application. Alternatively, or if you have any questions, you can email us on recruitment@confuzzled.org.uk
