You!?! Yes YOU!!!!
Perth Fashion Festival’s (PFF) talent scouts are on the hunt for volunteers interested in a career in fashion and events.
Style Envoy is an opportunity for enthusiastic and talented Western Australians to develop their PR, events and marketing skills at a world-class fashion event.
PFF Marketing and Sponsorship Coordinator Jessica Snook said her experience as a Style Envoy volunteer was invaluable and helped her secure employment in an industry she aspired to.
“It can be difficult to gain experience in WA’s competitive events and fashion industry, so Style Envoy was a great way for me to make contacts and experience what goes into running a successful fashion event,” Ms Snook said.
“Style Envoy is challenging but also a lot of fun. Volunteers get to help out in a range of areas from dressing models, front-of-house and event management support,” she added.
PFF is seeking 100 volunteers to fill administration, marketing, event management, publicity, backstage, styling, production and VIP hosting roles at the 2011 Festival.
All volunteers must be available to work in a full time capacity from Wednesday 21 September to Tuesday 27 September. Shifts will be 6-8 hours and will run from 8am to midnight. Volunteers will be required to work a minimum of five shifts over the Festival period.
Applications for Style Envoy 2011 are open until 30 July 2011. All Style Envoy volunteers will receive a formal induction, with thorough training and support. Applicants must be over 18 years of age.
