Your Pride In London

Pride in London means many things to many people, it belongs to our community and it belongs to you; come and join the conversation!

We are run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity and are drawn from all walks of life; together we pull off the UK’s biggest free LGBT+ community event every year. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

Around 150 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride. We welcome applications from everybody, and are especially keen to attract new volunteers from the BAME, Trans, Bi, Non-binary and Queer communities who we would love to see more widely represented in our organisation. 

Your new team 

Our organisation is home to around 150 year round volunteers with another 1,000 supporting us on the day of Pride. Volunteer Engagement is the team responsible for the recruitment, training, deployment and all-round experience of the volunteers needed to put on Pride in London.

Your new volunteer role

This is a critical event management role, with the Registration Site Manager taking full responsibility for the site that deploys all volunteers on the day of the Pride parade (around 1,000 people). 

  • Locate an appropriate and accessible venue
  • Develop a plan and process for the registration site on the day
  • Liaise with appropriate teams in the planning stages
  • Ensure all necessary equipments and systems are in place
  • Build a registration team who are able to manage large volumes of volunteers

Who you are

The ideal candidate will have significant event management experience with a strong understanding of the requirements, processes and pressures of a registration site. 

  • Confident in managing large flows of people, and able to adapt plans to ensure the delivery of the right number of volunteers to the Pride in London footprint
  • Calm under pressure
  • Confident decision-maker 
  • Strong written and spoken communication skills
  • Time required as a volunteer will be about 5 hours a week, including attending a regular Volunteer Engagement meeting. This time will increase in the month leading up to Pride.

What you’ll get joining Pride in London

  • A friendly and welcoming induction course and a variety of training that’s offered throughout the year 
  • An opportunity to get new and relevant professional experience
  • A chance to broaden your professional network
  • Play an important part in delivering the Pride in London event 
  • Social opportunities to meet the diverse and friendly bunch who volunteer for Pride in London

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
