Festival Volunteers

Passionate about fighting for equality and global justice? Join our festivals team as a volunteer campaigner!

Campaigning is at the heart of everything we do at Oxfam. As a volunteer campaigner, you’ll be part of our global movement for change – joining the fight to end inequality and beat poverty, as well as taking action to help those facing humanitarian crises. 


Oxfam is going to be at some of the biggest festivals across Ireland this summer, highlighting our work to tackle the causes of poverty while inspiring festivalgoers to join our movement for change.


We cannot do this without our amazing volunteer campaigners – and right now we are recruiting people to join the team.


We’re looking for friendly and outgoing volunteers – good communicators with excellent spoken English, people who are committed to helping build a just world without poverty. You don’t need previous experience because you’ll be trained on the issues and campaign techniques by Oxfam’s experienced staff.


Not only will you have lots of fun, be part of a fantastic team and know you’re doing your bit to change the world, you’ll also get to some of the biggest gigs and festivals for free. Our campaigners usually see the headline acts and get some free time to soak up the atmosphere.


To join our festivals team, please apply here as a volunteer campaigner.


PLEASE NOTE: All volunteers who attend a festival with us must be over 18 on the day of the event. All volunteers will be required to attend a training session in Oxfam’s Dublin office before attending any festival. 

Being a volunteer campaigner with Oxfam

As well as joining our festivals team, our volunteer campaigners do lots more to make change happen.


To challenge global injustice, we first need to change the rules. To do this, we influence governments and decision-makers on important issues, urging them to make decisions that benefit those living in poverty and facing crisis. However, we could not do this without our amazing network of volunteer campaigners from across the island of Ireland.


Once you’ve signed up as a campaigner, you’ll also receive regular invitations to take part in online and offline campaign actions, Oxfam events and trainings. You decide what you’d like to get involved in.


Online actions include participating in Twitter storms or talking to politicians about the issues that matter. Offline actions and stunts are usually held in Dublin and Belfast and focus on the important moments we want to highlight, or before decisions or events we want to influence.
