Join the Team

If you’re inspired, enthusiastic and up for a challenge then we want to hear from you! As Herefordshire’s favourite homegrown boutique festival we’re seeking talented volunteers to support the creation and development of this diverse and innovative event with the community at its heart.

Nozstock is a ten-stage festival – we’re proud of our grassroots and want to keep the treasured atmosphere from our overgrown party days while making sure we offer a festival experience that jostles with the big beasts! We’re family-run on volunteer power with an amazing culture – all our crew bring something unique and share satisfaction in putting on a good time for our punters and of course, for ourselves…

Whether you’re interested in volunteering just to get in free to see the amazing line up over the weekend, or if you are looking for something more involved to add wealth to your experience, we could have the opportunity for you so take a look at the roles on offer below. Nozstock has spawned some incredible talent – folks who began their humble roots here on the farm and are now working at some of the largest festivals, arts organisations and agencies in the world. Come, join the fold!

Handy with a hammer? We are looking for keen bods to join our volunteer construction team to help build the festival you love. This position would suit a tradesman who is now looking for a part time project and the opportunity to develop contacts and share knowledge. However, keen is the key so any skill level will be considered. Successful applicant will be a creative problem solver who enjoys helping others and being able to immerse themselves in a project right through from design to build completion. The right candidate would work on a range of jobs from building a full scale stegosaurus to putting down wood chip in areas of uneven ground. Our construction team work against the clock to produce Nozstock, but maintain a key eye for detail. They thrive in a busy work environment whilst remaining health and safety conscious. Ideally this is a pre-festival role with regular trips to the farm in Herefordshire required, but a limited amount of over-the-weekend applications will be considered for the right applicant.
