Event Managers

Senior Event Managers with proven experience overseeing logistics, coordinating site infrastructure and leading and motivating our event support and volunteer teams.

If you are interested in freelance event management work then please don't hesitate to get in touch via staff@actionchallenge.com

Event Crew

You are at the core of our ‘on-event’ team, tasked with a variety of different roles over the course of the event from infrastructure set-up to manning information and registrations areas, helping with catering and all of the other diverse jobs at our rest stops. Of course none of these jobs would be complete without giving a cheer to our fundraisers who are making their way through our event.

Trek Masters / Route Support

As a Trek Master you will be the main support on the route of the challenge, you will be largely situated in between our site rest-stops walking through stages of the route where your care counts the most to our participants. Your role will be varied and can entail everything from interaction with the participants and helping those who need it most, checking routes and signage, static marshalling potential hazards along the route and reporting anything to control. Fundamentally we are looking for experienced walkers to represent Action Challenge on the front-line of the event…. The route!

Volunteer Event Marshals

Action Challenge's volunteers are highly valued, bringing positive energy and fun to our events - and most crucially supporting our challengers when they need it most. For many who volunteer with us it is a highly rewarding experience - some have friends and family on the challenge and want to be part of the event, others are perhaps looking for experience within the challenge and events world before taking on more responsibility themselves; others do it because they just love it!
