Location:From home role with XR UK (UK Wide)
Hours per week:2-4
No. spaces available:10000
Meeting Time:At the action/event
Meeting Format:In-person
Meeting Schedule:Depends on action/event - most are during the daytime
Essential Skills:A smile and an outgoing personality, happy to wear a pink high-viz vest
Desired Skills:We train all stewards in the skills required for the role
Accessibility considerations:Whilst many stewarding roles require mobility we also have static roles

This volunteering role is to be added to the pool of UK stewards that we then message about upcoming actions so you can decide if you are interested / available. We get requests for Stewarding support from all over the country, but most of the large events tend to be in or near London or other major cities.

Stewards help to ensure all attendees at an event are safe. On a march this would include keeping people away from traffic, supporting road closures and keeping the march together. At a static event, this would include answering questions from the public or attendees, pointing people in the right direction, or helping them find others. Stewarding is a great way to contribute to the success of an event, to interact with all the other teams involved.

We give full training (online and at the event and new stewards are buddied up with experienced stewards (we usually aim to steward in pairs anyway)We need stewards to reflect the diversity of those attending our events so we are particularly keen to recruit new stewards from diverse backgrounds and communities.
