Join the HandyCon 10 - HandyCrew!

What’s involved with volunteering at HandyCon?

Volunteering at HandyCon could involve helping set up/tear down, checking in attendees and running the front desk, helping with tournaments and events, staffing the bring and buy and board game library or even just being on hand to help solve issues that arise. Due to the work being quite varied, we will make sure all volunteers are comfortable with their roles and provide the appropriate training when required. If you have any questions or concerns about volunteering, please get in touch via email at info@handycon.co.uk.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for people with a passion for gaming to help promote a helpful, friendly and inclusive atmosphere at the con. We also are currently only looking for people who can commit to volunteering for at least 6 hours over the course of the convention.

If you have not volunteered before, you must be available for the HandyCrew meeting on Friday morning at 8.30 am.

Please note that to volunteer at HandyCon, you must be at least 18 years of age.
