We're looking for volunteers to come and join us celebrate the River Thames this September!

Are you a keen river enthusiast? Do you value arts and culture? Enjoy working in a team? We’re recruiting Ambassadors and Project Volunteers for this year’s Totally Thames, an annual season of events across the whole month of September and want to hear from you.

This year we have two volunteer roles:   

Totally Thames Ambassador
For those individuals who would like to travel around multiple events, support us in gaining valuable audience feedback and provide valuable information about our programme to the general public, then becoming a Totally Thames Ambassador for a few hours a day might suit you.

Project Volunteers
If you want to utilise your skills and assist in the production and event management across our artistic, heritage and education programme, then we have a small number of events for Project Volunteers to pick from.  

Please ensure that you read the volunteer descriptions thoroughly and only choose the roles that you can commit to.  Some events have limited capacity, so we cannot guarantee that you will be successful with all your choices.

Read the Project Volunteers descriptions 

How to Apply:  Once you have made your selection then please fill out the form by following the link below along with the Equal Opportunities Form and return no later than Wednesday 16 August.

For those selecting to be a Totally Thames Ambassador we will be providing Audience Research training on Thursday 24 August.

Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for interviews by Friday 18 August.

  • Telephone interviews for Totally Thames Ambassadors will take place on Friday 18 August. 
  • Interviews for Project Volunteers will take place between Monday 21 - Wednesday 23 August. 

If you have any queries or questions relating to the opportunities listed above then please contact recruitment@thamesfestival.org. We will aim to respond to your email within 1-2 working days.
