security openings, apply now!
« on: February 17, 2014, 21:25:28 »
Hello dear attendee!

The ConFuzzled security team has vacant positions for new members.
Our teams main responsibilities are:
   * Enforcing convention and venue policies
   * Establishing and operating checkpoints at key areas
   * Crowd control and risk assessment
   * Enforcing fire and safety regulations
   * Assisting the paramedic teams
   * Evacuation procedures
   
At the convention we have a certain amount of fixed 1-hour guard duty slots at checkpoints or for events. These shifts are shared equally among the team. The resulting duty-schedule will be created with respect to the personal wishes and interests of our members. This means we are usually capable of scheduling their shifts without any colliding events that they want to see or take part in themselves. The average workload of scheduled shifts for each security member is between 5 and 7 hours over the course of the entire convention.

Outside of scheduled guard-shifts our members are on-duty 24/7, but they can sign off temporarily whenever they want to drink alcohol, have private time or just go to sleep. "On-duty" means that our members take part in the convention/walk around and do whatever they want, except drinking alcohol. We expect every security member on-duty to answer attendee questions, assist our guests in every way possible and to keep an eye open for potential problems. Also on-duty members can be summoned via radio to deal with incidents or emergencies at any time.

We understand our duty is to help and protect our guests and therefore we consider security to be an essential service to our attendees. We expect friendly and polite behaviour in any situation. Security is there to make our guests feel safe, not to intimidate them.

Due to the immense responsibility of our department, the ConFuzzled security team is organised in a professional manner and has a higher demand on its members than other departments. The basic requirements for every applicant are:

  • Sufficient fluency in English to communicate with attendees. Actual fluency in English and/or other languages is a plus.
  • Ability and willingness to cover at least five fixed 1-hour slots during the convention.
  • At least one advocate trusted by the Head of Security to vouch for one's suitability.
  • No time-consuming tasks in other teams during the convention.
  • Punctuality, reliability, and ability to work independently within given rules.
  • A generally calm, level-headed and polite demeanour, with a ‚ÄĚdrama-free" reputation.
  • Responsible and respectable behaviour, even in light of a personal conflict of interests.
   
Every applicant will be contacted via an instant messenger of their choice for a quick formless interview, to give them the chance to ask questions and to give us and the applicant the chance to get to know each other. This is necessary, since trust and a relaxed atmosphere among the team is crucial to us.

Please do not be worried by this application-process. We are a really friendly bunch of people and we only do all this hassle, because we need to make sure that our team works as one big family. As a result, you can have loads of fun and get to know new people by the hour.

Worried that you won't fit the team? Don't be shy and just write us an e-mail. We'll gladly help you decide if our team would be the right choice for you. :3

If you have any questions or if you would like to apply, please send us an e-mail to  security@confuzzled.org.uk
