Volunteer Coordinator Tromsø VegFest

Temporary position (35 %) for October 2022.
Flexible workplace and working hours with a requirement of being in Tromsø in week 43 and preferably week 44.

Do you want to work with us and contribute to making the biggest possible difference for our planet and animals in industrial agriculture?

We believe that change can save lives. And change begins on our plates. With more plant-based food on our plate, we can combat several of the most pressing problems in today’s society: We save the environment from enormous strains, prevent several of the most common lifestyle diseases and help animals suffering in factory farms.

That is why Grønn Framtid changes thousands of meals in Norwegian schools every year, while Tromsø VegFest – Northern Norway’s Veggie Festival and our Plant Power Challenge inspire thousands of people to eat more plant-based. Furthermore, our cooperation with companies through V-Label is in the start-up phase. And now we are looking for YOU who want to join and inspire thousands of people at Tromsø VegFest! Do you want to be part of this exciting and important development?

As volunteer coordinator at Tromsø VegFest you are a crucial part of making the festival a success! As the main contact for our volunteers on the day of the event you like to be around our passionate volunteers and you are good at communication. You are the one making sure that all our shifts are covered and that our 50 volunteers are prepared for their tasks, have a good time and feel valued as Tromsø VegFests volunteers are the backbone of our festival! You stay calm in a fast paced environment, are solution-oriented and feel comfortable making decisions on your own if necessary.

 

This is the perfect position for you who:

  • Identifies with Grønn Framtids vision
  • Speaks English and preferably Norwegian
  • Is communicative and organised
  • Would like to learn, is open to adapt to change and would like to grow with us!
  • Desirable: You have already experience with volunteer coordinating on a smaller or larger scale

You can look forward to:

  • The opportunity to do something that really matters!
  • A nice & including team that works hard – but also has a lot of fun together!
  • An opportunity to grow and gain new knowledge
  • Responsibility for a very important task
  • Making Tromsø VegFest 2022 a success!

Work place: Tromsø in week 43, otherwise the work can be done remotely if necessary. We therefore accept applications from the whole country. Applicants from Tromsø are preferred though.

Working hours: Your working hours will increase when the festival is coming closer, so that you will work almost full-time the week of the event, but a lot less in the beginning of October.

We would appreciate it if you have knowledge in plant-based foods, animal welfare or environmental protection as well as volunteer management, but we value other qualities and personal suitability even higher! Training will be provided.

That’s just the perfect job for you, you say? Then we are looking forward to hear from you! Fill out the application scheme here. Deadline: 17. august 2022

In the application, we want you to solve the following task: Imagine that there are only two weeks left  before the festival and we realise that we are in need of at least 10 more volunteers. Create a short plan on how you’d recruit more volunteers for Tromsø VegFest.

We are looking forward to hear from you!
