UK ROCK CHALLENGE®

2009 TOUR VOLUNTEERS' APPLICATION FORM

Too old to be a student member of your Rock Challenge team ?
Still want to be a part of the Rock Challenge experience ?

Well, you can come to as many shows as you like - be a volunteer !
We are always welcoming more volunteers to come along and embrace the unique experience of working with the crew at a Rock Challenge event.

The 2009 Calendar is on the website now so check it out, see where you could help out, then simply print out this form, fill it in and send it to us in the office. If possible, send this form five weeks before the event(s) you intend to volunteer at so that we can process your information and know to expect you !

Volunteers get to rock out on the stage in the morning and afternoon moshes with the crew too so you are guaranteed to feel like a superstar !


If you are younger still, and would like to undertake your Work Experience as a placement at Rock Challenge, we have in the past sometimes been able to find room for that. Please send a letter to the Office at the address shown below.

    The Rock Challenge is a drug-free initiative. Please note that this extends to all staff, including volunteers.

    Anyone who smokes tobacco products, uses (or is under the influence of) alcohol, gets their kicks from inhaling solvents or uses Class A, B or C illegal/prohibited drugs or other substances that adversely affect their ability to work safely on the day of the event will be asked to leave the venue immediately.

    By signing this form you are agreeing to abide by this stipulation.

    Please also be aware that you will need to be checked against the records held at the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) to see if information is held about you that could indicate you should not be placed as a volunteer at any UK Rock Challenge events.



    If you have an up-to-date CRB certificate please send it with this form. If you have applied for a CRB check with Rock Challenge in the past, you need not apply again - please send us your CRB certificate with this form. A CRB check will cost you 15 and we will send you a CRB form once we have received this application form.

    Please be aware that if your application is successful you will also be required to read, accept and sign the terms and conditions for the Child Protection Policy (CPP). We ask that all our volunteers complete this paperwork to ensure that we are giving the young participants of Rock Challenge the best care and protection we can against people who may have untoward intent in volunteering for the Rock Challenge.

    Please do not sign this form if you feel that your son/daughter/ward would find this expectation too much of a challenge.

    If your son/daughter/ward is asked to leave the venuefor breaking the conditions in the Statement below Section Three it is not the responsibility of the Rock Challenge to ensure their safe passage home.
    Please do not sign this form if you feel that you are unable to provide them with safe transportation away from the venue earlier than the planned time.

    ____________ (Yes / No)

    My contact mobile and home phone number(s): ________________________________________________________

    I give my permission for my son/daughter/ward

    I confirm that I have no criminal record relating to offences against children or young people.

    I confirm that I have no undisclosed medical condition that might affect my work with the Rock Challenge.
