The MOBO team running this year’s awards in Glasgow on October 5 need a number of volunteer assistants, runners and ushers to support the event.

The ideal applicant must be a confident communicator with a keen eye for detail, reliable, highly organised and be able to handle small projects independently, as well as work harmoniously as part of a wider team. This demanding and challenging role requires you to be hard working, determined and be able to help out wherever necessary, with a real can-do attitude.

Applicants will need to be 18 or older. You will need to be living within the Glasgow area, and be able to make your own way to and from the SECC. You will be expected to arrive at the venue at 9.30am, and be on hand until around 11pm, possibly later. Lunch and dinner will be provided.

Interviews will be conducted on Sunday 2nd and Monday 3rd October at the SECC Glasgow, and candidates are required to bring a valid form of ID with them (passport, provisional or full driving licence). Volunteer assistants, runners and ushers will also need to be available on the afternoon of Tuesday 4th October at the SECC for a staff briefing at the venue.

Please note: This is an unpaid, temporary position, but you will gain some valuable experience in the workings of a large event such as the MOBO Awards.

Interested persons should send their CV to team@mobo.com with the title “MOBO Awards Runners 2011” no later than Wednesday 28 September 2011.

Available Positions

There are a number of roles “stationed” across the show and various venues. These positioned are “based” at:

• After Show Party

• VIP Hospitality

• VIP Ticketing

• Stock Replenish

• Accreditation

• Ushers

• MOBO TV Assistant

• Event coordinator

In any case, runners will be required to assist their line manager, as well as assist wherever necessary. More specific information regarding each of the roles can and will be given upon acceptance of the role. Candidates should cite a preference of up to three choices of roles, which will be considered during the interview stage.

While you will be assigned a particular area, you will not be restricted to this. At times, you may be required to help in other areas of work.

About MUSIC NEWS Scotland

MUSIC NEWS Scotland was born 12 years ago when dial up broadband was still around and desktop pc’s ruled. So we did what had been done since 220 AD in China and every month put ink on a printing plate, ran some paper over it and hey presto MNS was published (okay it was a wee bit more involved than that, but the basic principle was the same!) Move on to 2011 with high speed broadband and access to the www everywhere and the future was catching up with us rapidly. The volume of information flowing into MNS HQ was more than our monthly issue could cope with, and more and more Scottish music stories of great value were being spiked (an old press term not a dodgy drink). Reaching our vast number of readers in every conceivable nook and cranny of Scotland has always been a challenge monthly but to do that more often was physically not feasible. So we have doffed oor tam o’ shanter to the future and MNS is now a weekly digital publication, and not only weekly now but twice the number of pages than our old printed friend! Along with our weekly GIGguide and FESTIVALS! supplement we are now producing 72 pages of Scottish music news (and only music news) each and EVERY week:) We remain as true as ever to our launch roots of 8 years ago though - MUSIC NEWS Scotland supports all Scottish bands and performers no matter what style of music you’re involved in. Our aim is to circulate music industry news and to help to raise the profile of musicians and improve communications between genres. To help achieve this copies of MUSIC NEWS Scotland are emailed to key industry contacts throughout the UK. Thank you for your support over the last 8 years and please raise a glass to our digital future with you all. Thanks for your support, The MNS team!
