Roles to be filled
Bus | Lead (Spanish Speaker)
Our Nowhere Bus Leads for 2023 will be the heroes of transport so that participants have a stress-free time getting to and from the event (at least compared to 2022!)
We need a Spanish speaking Bus Lead to be the main point of contact between Nowhere and the bus company during the year (whilst hiring) and on-site during the event. You will spend time communicating with the other Bus Leads to make sure all the correct information gets given to other departments such as Finance and Gate/Greeters. This is mostly a pre-event planning role but there will be expectation to make sure all is well between the bus companies and the bus volunteers/site crew during the event.
This year we are also looking at the possibility of having a Strike bus to take Strike crew back to Barcelona on the last day of Strike. This will be discussed with the team over the next couple of months.
Tasks and time commitment
This is mainly a pre-event role, with the bulk of the work being to book the buses, work out prices etc. However, as you will be the main point of contact for the buses, this means being on-call to solve any issues on the days the buses will run.
