THE SHIFT is a non-profit organization made possible by a group of driven volunteers. These people are the heart and soul of SHIFT.
AT THE MOMENT WE’RE LOOKING FOR…
As an event volunteer you will be the ones making SHIFT possible. You can help event attendees by finding answers to their questions, host keynote speakers or partners, help out constructing terraces, create social media content, take photos, work as a chauffeur and whatnot. The work is done during the festival week 26.8-1.9. Community nights and trainings are provided before and after the festival.

As a team leader you will get to lead a team of 5 to 20 people. We additionally offer internal trainings in e.g. stress and time management, and leadership. The workload for team leaders is around 5-10 h/week prior to the event week.
Our internships come with a guarantee for rapid professional growth. The workload for interns is around 20+h/week prior to the event week.
Note: You do not have to be enrolled in any university or university of applied sciences to apply for our internship positions.

WHO WE ARE
We are daredevils, quiet powerhouses, hypersocial people persons, analytical thinkers, artistic talents… and together we are a bunch of shapers. If we see something that ought to be changed, we ought to shake it to shape it. We do things for the community and ourselves in the form of joy, growth, development and networks.

This lets you try and perform at the edge of your comfort zone.
