We’re sorry to announce that Gryphon Venues will not be running at the 2015 Fringe. We’re in the process of reorganizing, and we plan to come back for the 2016 Fringe stronger than ever!
Like most Fringe venues, all positions are volunteer positions. We require you to be available to work in Edinburgh from Tuesday 21st July – Sunday 30th August inclusive and to be available to reply to emails from the Gryphon team in a timely way in the run-up to the festival e.g. regarding induction information etc.
As with every role at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, there will be some very long days and all volunteers are expected to be hands-on during the build and tear-down. As Gryphon is a small team, all volunteers should be prepared to help cover other roles where needed and pitch in at busy times, though of course we will not ask you to do anything for which you feel untrained or are uncomfortable about. Once the festival is up and running we will operate a rota to ensure everyone gets some time off and can see shows. We do not ask you to sign a contract, but will ask you to agree to a code of conduct.
We’re sorry to say that at this time we can only take on British citizens or those who have a work visa.
Apply now and we’ll contact you for a phone interview.
Gryphon team members will receive accommodation for the time they are in Edinburgh, a weekly stipend towards food, a Gryphon Venues Crew T shirt and staff pass and free entry to all Gryphon shows with available seats at performance time. It is also likely you will receive sugary snacks, shoddy homemade prizes and certificates, a generous dose of team spirit, satisfaction at a job well done, happy memories, embarrassing photographs and an enormous sense of well-being.
