As a Production Coordinator you will be part of a core team who will deliver a multi-venue music festival in October. By doing so you will join a network of Oxjam volunteers across the UK and be responsible, collectively, for the success of Oxjam19.

You will need excellent planning and preparation skills, the ability to multi-task, the ability to manage a team and a fair amount of role specific knowledge, i.e. some technical knowledge, preferably including experience of working with sound equipment, and some experience of working with venues and bands. Here are the key responsibilities for a PC:

  1. Overall responsibility for the logistics of the festival.
  2. Booking the venues and artists alongside the Festival Manager.
  3. Recruiting and managing volunteer coordinators for each venue to liaise with artists, oversee tech specs and stage manage on the day.
  4. Ensuring relevant legislation is adhered to, including insurance, licensing and health and safety.
  5. Being in regular contact with your Festival Manager and core team.

Although the festival takes place in October, the work begins right now. The first task is to work alongside your Festival Manager to book the venues and artists for your festival. As Oxjam is a fundraising event, Managers are also encouraged to host warm up events during the Summer to raise extra cash, increase awareness of their upcoming festival, and in some instances, cover costs. You will need to work with your Festival Manager to make sure these events are successful.
