The Skills Show calls for volunteers from the Retail Industry




The Skills Show, the UK’s largest skills and careers event, is calling for businesses within the retail sector to encourage their employees to volunteer at its 2013 event, which will be held in Birmingham at the NEC from the 14-16 November 2013.




Volunteers selected to join the Show’s 750-strong team will have a unique opportunity to contribute to the production of a national event, while sharing their skills and expertise with younger volunteers.  From event management to construction, communications, transport management and more, there are many different roles available and a wealth of opportunities to contribute to this large-scale event which supports young people in their search for a career.




All volunteers will receive a branded uniform, a contribution of up to £10 in travel costs, lunch and refreshments. They will also receive a certificate confirming their participation in the event.




Miriam Farley, Senior Event Manager at The Skills Show, commented:  “Volunteering at The Skills Show will provide individuals with experience of working at a large scale public event, as well as giving the volunteers an insight into the many different roles involved in bringing a show together.  Working so closely with others from different disciplines builds teamwork and enthusiasm – and gives individuals the opportunity to share their skills while coaching and working with younger volunteers.”




The volunteer recruitment programme is now open to everyone over the age of 16. Individuals interested in volunteering can register by visiting The Skills Show team will assess all applications and get in touch to discuss pre-training before the event. Applications are now open and will close in October. To find out more, and see the 2012 volunteers in action, watch the online video at
