Join the event stewarding team

Job description

Event stewards are the friendly and welcoming face of our events, and also assist behind the scenes.

Our events can only happen with the hard work of the stewards who take on a variety of roles from crew, entertainment steward, parade steward and face painter. Please make it clear on your application your experience so we can best match you to the roles available.

We look for all our stewards to be:

  • confident when interacting with the public
  • organised and have a calm approach
  • proactive and vigilant on events
  • knowledgeable of the city
  • experienced in stewarding for events, or able to demonstrate transferable skills.


If your application is successful you will be invited to a steward training session on Wednesday 12 June at 5:15pm until approximately 7pm. You will be paid for the session which is mandatory for all new stewards and all returning stewards to attend every two years.

Specific roles

Rate of pay

  • Stewards: £8.90per hour* for all events.
  • Supervisors: £9.32 - £10.27 per hour* depending upon responsibility.

*Statutory rates of pay will go up in April 2019. Holiday pay accrued will be added to these rates.
