Would you like to be more involved in the operations of an event and improve your leadership skills? Try one of our Team Leader roles from supervising an area of the course, a rest site, or a marquee at the Event Village.
Being a Team Leader is a great way to improve your leadership and communication skills and will provide you with an insight to the operations of a large-scale fundraising event.
Team Leaders are responsible for supervising a team of volunteers, as well as ensuring a work area is set up/packed down and run smoothly. Team Leaders will also be required to effectively communicate with MS Event Staff and other operational staff.
All Team Leaders will be supported by a Volunteer Coordinator or Manager and will be sent all instructions pre event.
PLEASE NOTE: SOME TEAM LEADER ROLES REQUIRE A NATIONAL POLICE CHECK.
