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!

Forty-six years since the first Pride march in London, Pride in London has a renewed sense of purpose to highlight the challenges still facing the LGBT+ community today despite progress. 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 LGBTQ+ community event every year. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ 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 fundraising team is key to making Pride in London happen. The event is expensive to run and the show couldn’t go on without their efforts encouraging generous donations from thousands of individuals every year. The team work tirelessly year round across a range of activities from running glamourous events like our Gala Dinner, to partnering with community groups or simply hitting the streets with a Pride in London fundraising bucket.

The fundraising team is responsible for growing financial donations and commercial income that allow Pride in London to continue to grow the event and its support of the LGBTQI+ community. You will be part of a team that is responsible for generating high levels of income. One of the key funding streams is through the sale of stalls for various organisations to interact with attendees across the footprint of the day of Pride.


Your new volunteer role

Responsibilities include:-

  • Support the processing of stall applications, making recommendations to the board on which stalls should be accepted and which declined
  • Planning the layout of stalls
  • Resolving queries from stallholders in advance of the event
  • Sending email and SMS reminders to stallholders about payment of invoices and applying for trading licences
  • Liaising with external partners including Westminster City Council, London Borough of Camden, and our production partners
  • Working with internal partners including the web team, Finance, Fundraising, and board members
  • Managing logistics including ordering furniture for stalls
  • Ensuring adherence to health and safety policies and receipt by Pride in London of valid insurance certificates for stallholders
  • On the day of Pride, managing the team of Stalls Managers across the Pride footprint
  • Providing leadership on resolution of issues and conflicts on the day
  • Gathering feedback from stallholders to help plan and prepare for 2021

 

Who you are

You will have good project management abilities, good at building relationships and excellent stakeholder management. You will need to be able to commit on average 4 - 6 hours per week to the role. You will need to be comfortable with being assertive in your role, be firm but fair with stallholders who dont follow T&Cs and be a problem solver. You must be comfortable in a high pressure environment and dealing with issues as they arise.

On the day of Pride you will be expected to be on duty from 0800-2100hrs.

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.
