Title: ConFuzzled needs you!
Post by: Rallicat on August 08, 2013, 10:18:13
Fancy joining the ConFuzzled crew for 2014? Read on! (or to skip right to the signup form click here! (

Every year the convention gets bigger and bigger and we need more and more keen staff to help continue to give all our attendees a great experience. In return we offer you the admiration and respect of our attendees, as well as a free upgrade to our ‘Plus’ membership (in 2013 this gave a T-Shirt and exclusive print item). Staff and Crew of the convention also receive priority access to registration later this year.

Below are the roles we need people to sign up for, but if you have an idea for something you’d like to do for the convention, please complete the application form and detail your idea.

Web Application Developers

Working with either our Events or Registration teams, we need skilled web application developers to help improve and maintain our in-house web applications. Knowledge of either PHP (including CodeIgniter and JQuery) or Ruby on Rails required. This role is a pre-con role and would not require you to give up time at the convention.

First Aid

We need applicants with valid first aid certification (which you must present at the convention) to provide first aid response and care when required. You would be working in an on-call rota throughout the convention at agreed times.

Setup & Teardown Staff

We need to grow our team of staff who take responsibility for assisting with setup and teardown, this will include lifting and carrying sometimes heavy items and will include loading/unloading vehicles.  Busy periods are primarily during the initial setup prior to opening ceremonies, and again after the closing ceremonies.

Events Team

We require enthusiastic people to help plan and operate our busy Events schedule for the convention. There are a mixture of roles available which can be either prior to or during the convention itself, or a combination of both. Prior to the convention the team liaise with panellists to prepare our event schedule and collate requirements. Work during the convention involves ensuring that events are starting on time and correct equipment is available. Some specialist roles are also available in the Fursuit team, maintaining the Fursuit Lounge and running the Fursuit Fiasco.

Stage Crew

Staff required heping in the stage, including looking after the stage equipment and assisting with setup and teardown.  This would also include assisting on the stage lighting and sound desk.

Dealers Den & Artshow

Staff required for both the Den, and the ArtShow.  Staff in the den look after the convention store and charity desk selling direct to attendees, and help with den setup and teardown including safety testing of electrical items.
Artshow staff handle setup and tear down of the artshow, and submission of items from artists, as well as preparing for the voice auction and processing the bids and payments.

Guest of Honour Assistants

We are looking for someone who would be able to help look after our Guests of Honour at the convention, making sure that their needs are catered for and delivering them to their events one time. Ability to stand up and speak in front of a group of people would be beneficial.

Security Service

Our security service teams have vacant positions for the upcoming convention. If you have comprehensive social skills and you're a level headed attendee you are most welcome to apply to join our security teams. You don't need any formal training to apply as we provide our own training, however a valid SIA license is a big plus.

If you would like to sign up for these positions, or want to in general put yourself forward for consideration for staff / crew roles, then please click here! ( for our signup form!

Out of interest, are you guys still looking for help during the con, or has the time passed to help out this year? :)
