Title: Security Team is looking for volunteers!
Post by: Dhary Montecore on 29.08.2018, 13:48:09
Hello, dear attendee!

We're happy to welcome you to Eurofurence this year.

Our convention keeps growing significantly and we're glad to see even more happy faces each year. However, as the attendance continues to grow, we are looking for additional volunteers for our Security Team to make sure we can provide our guests with the high level of service we've established over the last 20 years.

If you're interested in volunteering at Eurofurence, now is a good time to become a member of the Security Team. You'll get to see how this convention works behind the scenes, meet a lot of people and help making community events like Eurofurence possible at all. Oh and free coffee ;) What's not to love?

All members of Security are Furries themselves and want to enjoy Eurofurence as much as you do. We're making sure there is plenty of time to take part in the convention -- it's supposed to be a vacation, after all.

Over the years, we established a balance between fun and professionalism that is working out very well. We take our job serious, not ourselves.

Your job will be to make the convention safe and enjoyable for our guests. We provide a lot more than a typical bouncer: we care about our guests and strive to make them feel welcome. A polite and friendly demeanour is an absolute must at all times. Also, you'll need to bring the following:

You will be provided with everything you'll need for your duties. We will not just thrust a radio into your hands and throw you to the wolves, you will get training and personal coaching. No-one works alone during their shifts and you can contact your Team Leader or Dispatch (yes, we have a whole dispatching system, custom software and all - you'll love it) at any time. After your first year, we offer advanced training that can bring you at the same level as a professional Security officer, so you'll be able to lead your own team or checkpoint.

We will conduct a short voice-chat with you to get to know you a bit. Don't worry, this is not an interrogation, but a personal chat between you, me and and my recruitment office to make sure we're on the same page about any questions you might have.

Are you interested in joining the Security Team? Please write an email to, we will get back to you shortly. Thank you for taking the time to read this, we're looking forward to hear from you!
