Call for a Logistics Coordinator for Kendal Torchlight Carnival

Posted Friday, 03 March 2017, 12.39pm

Kendal Torchlight is looking for a practical organiser to work alongside the Torchlight Team Leader as our within a dedicated and skilled team.

You and the Team Leader will set up and lead the logistics, ensuring that all the practical arrangements for the Torchlight Procession are in place. Tasks will include liaison with police, local authority officials, marshals and volunteers, local businesses, and voluntary organisations.

Health and safety of the procession will be paramount and logistical responsibilities will involve: road closures, crowd management, team leadership and coordination, management of marshals and volunteers and the management of the procession itself. There are many members of the existing Organising Group, Professional Staff, Marshals Team and general Volunteers that have considerable experience in the managing the procession and street party, but we are looking for an individual and small team who can head up the logistics co-ordination.

The Carnival Procession and Street Party are on the 15th and 16th September 2017, and we need to have the Logistics Leadership in place as soon as possible. If you are someone who could do this or you know someone who would be interested, whether they have particular experience of Torchlight or not, please let the Torchlight Team Leader know as soon as possible. Email: craig.russell@kendal-torchlight-carnival.co.uk

There are many other roles with Torchlight - if you have creative, organisational or administration skills, or if you can simply spare some time to support our Torchlight fundraising events, please also get in touch.
