Join The Crew

The success of Manchester Coffee Festival relies heavily on our amazing volunteers. From the moment our attendees arrive to when they leave the hospitality provided by the onsite crew ensures all visitors to the event have the best time.

We’re celebrating our 5th Birthday this November and we’re so happy to see volunteers returning for their fifth consecutive year of working with us.

What do volunteers get?

  • complimentary entry to the festival outside of volunteer hours

  • free event t-shirt

  • invitation to post-event social night on us

  • chance to meet loads of cool coffee people and make new lasting friendships!

Volunteer roles include:

  • Manager – our volunteer manager plays a key role nurturing the event team and delivering a smooth experience for all. Some event and/or management experience is useful.

  • Registration – signing visitors in, handing out swag bags, selling tickets.

  • Merchandise – managing the sale of the official event merchandise.

  • Sensory School – we’re looking for experienced coffee industry folk to help with the delivery of our new event feature. All will be explained!

  • Cupping Lab – assist our clients with set up, delivery and break down of cuppings. Messy but fun!

  • Presentations/Talks – lining up presentations, managing AV with onsite technician and introducing speakers

It’s helpful if volunteers are able to commit to a minimum of two shifts from 2-4 November and also to attend a pre-event meeting on the evening of Monday 29 October.
