Fringe wants you!
Volunteers are invaluable for Amsterdam Fringe Festival. Without them, the festival won’t be able to take place. Do you want to share your enthusiasm and be part of an international theatre festival? Apply now!
During the Fringe there will be a lot going on in Amsterdam. This means we need volunteers in a lot of different places. How about working at the box office or working as a location host? Maybe you’re really good at promoting or you shine at the merchandise stand. If you’d rather work those muscles, you can help with (de)construction. There is a perfect fit for everyone! Hard time choosing? Feel free to combine!
What’s in it for you?
As a Fringe volunteer you’ll find yourself in the right place to expand your network and to add extra work experience to your résumé. But most importantly: as a volunteer you will have a great time! Also, you will benefit from the following extra’s:
- Free entrance to Fringe shows (when they’re not fully booked)
- A Fringe T-shirt
- Entrance to exclusive Fringe parties
What do we want from you?
We expect our volunteers to work at least 2 shifts. A shift will last between 4 – 6 hours, depending on the location you are working at and the function you are working in. After applying we’ll invite you for an interview in which we can discuss what you can do for the Fringe.
You can apply as a volunteer by filling in the form on the website. You can find detailed job descriptions below. If you have any questions, please send an email to volunteers[at]amsterdamfringe.nl.
A Fringe location host is responsible for one location. You will sell tickets, help the theater group and are front of house. The location host makes sure everything will go smoothly.
At the box office you will sell Fringe tickets. Also, you can expect guests to ask questions about the festival.
Not too shy and fond of some craziness? We will send you out on the street to promote the Fringe Festival and to sell merchandise at the heart of the festival.
We are always looking for (strong) men and women to help us build up the festival and to break it down again.
In this team you’ll be responsible for the decoration of the festival locations.
As a transport runner you will fill in the gaps in the schedule or run errands. This is probably the most surprising function, as you will never know what to expect.
As a Fringe Assistant you will be involved prior to the festival. You will help the team during events before the Fringe starts! Note: we expect more availability from our assistants during the festival and the Uitmarkt.
