Call for Eurovision volunteers – applications now open

WITH just over three months until one of the biggest music competitions in the world takes over Liverpool – the Eurovision host city team wants people to get involved.

The volunteering programme has opened, giving people the chance to be at the heart of the event.

Around 500 roles have been created to support the delivery, with volunteers being required for various periods of time starting from Monday 1 until Sunday 14 May 2023.

Volunteers will have the chance to mix with people from different backgrounds, as well as the opportunity to gain skills along the way.

To apply, volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, be friendly and approachable and have good local knowledge. It’s also a bonus if candidates can speak a language other than English due to the international nature of the event.

Volunteers will be located across the city centre, at the Tourist Information Centre in Liverpool ONE, at the Eurovision Village on the Pier Head and at key transport hubs. Duties will include scanning event tickets, meeting and greeting visitors, or welcoming artists to backstage areas in the Eurovision Village.

The ambition is to create a diverse and inclusive volunteering team, with a blend of local volunteers and volunteers with knowledge of the Ukrainian language and culture. Please note, for those outside the UK, volunteers will need a work visa to take part.

To register your interest in becoming a Eurovision Song Contest 2023 volunteer and to find out more about the roles available, visit the Culture Liverpool website.

The closing date for applications is midnight, Tuesday 14 February.

Please note, volunteers will not be required to work on site at M&S Bank Arena where the Eurovision Song Contest is taking place.
