All members of the group must enter all the other members of the group's full names and dates of birth on their application form for the group to be matched. If anyone leaves anyone's details out on the application form, the group will not be matched on our system and you will not be rostered on shift together.
Please be aware that if one member of your agreed shift partner group decides not to apply, or does not get a place or cancels at a later date, and the rest of the shift partner group has added that person, the whole group will not be matched and you will not be rostered together. In this instance, please ensure that you contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can match your group together. Please select one person from your group to email us, and make sure they copy in all the other members of the group to that email.
It is very important for all of you to decide before you apply who your shift partner group is, and that everyone is definitely applying. You do not need to all apply on the same day, but you do need to all apply for that festival and put down each other's names and dates of birth, for the group to be matched. Please be aware you will need to enter each of your shift partner's details exactly as their names will be entered on their application form, i.e. If your shift partner has put 'Joe Bloggs', do not put Joseph Bloggs, as our system will not recognise it as a shift
partner match. Please also ensure sure you enter date of birth's in this format: DD/MM/YYYY.
If a member of your shift partner groups cancels their place at the festival, or decides to leave the shift partner group after you have all applied, the rest of the shift partner group will still be matched.
If you are not sure if someone is going to apply to steward, leave them out of the shift partner group for now, and you can contact us up until the cancellation deadline to add them in (as long it does not exceed 6 members) on 0300 200 1266, or email email@example.com.
Shift partner groups are per festival, so you will need to enter all your shift partner details on each festival application you make - as will your shift partners.
If you are stewarding, we're sorry but it is not possible for a campaigner or shop volunteer to be linked as your shift partner since their shifts operate on different timetables to ours.
Please note that if you apply to any festival once we have started allocating shifts (usually after the cancellation date), it may not be possible to link you with your shift partner/s.
