About the post

Waverley Care has a long-standing relationship with the Fringe and The Pleasance, one of the largest venues at the festival. For over 30 years we’ve collected donations from audiences, worked with comedians and performers on benefit shows, and hosted our own events in the Fringe programme. Following three difficult years, we’re keen to grow our festival fundraising bigger than ever before.



This post will be based at the Pleasance Courtyard and will provide a key role in our festival activities, working with and supporting volunteers, liaising with performers and festival colleagues, and leading our on-site bucket collections.

Full training to succeed in the role will be provided, and flexibility will be required. You’ll receive Waverley Care t-shirts and jacket to wear when working, and a Pleasance staff pass, which allows first-come first-served access to shows which are not sold out.

Start and finish times may be slightly amended, depending on venue programming.
