Volunteers at Vivid Sydney

Vivid Sydney would not be possible without a little help from our friends. In 2019, there were 733 volunteers in the team. The Vivid volunteer crew get an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek into the inner workings of a major event; connect with the local community, make friends with like-minded people and enjoy the ‘feel-good’ factor volunteering brings.

What roles are available?

Vivid volunteers play an important customer-service role. On any given day you could be providing directions, recommending installations or sites, and ensuring the public have a safe, enjoyable time.

Do I need any special skills?

Not at all! We encourage people of all different backgrounds, over the age of 18 to apply. If you have exceptional customer service skills or speak multiple languages, we would love to hear from you. Read the minimum requirements here.

What are some of the perks?

  • University, TAFE and RTO approved certified hours for course placement
  • Access to I Need Helpers community (18,000+ volunteers)
  • Pre-festival and on-site briefings
  • Vivid Sydney jacket, t-shirt and recyclable water bottle
