The Oxjam Takeover

 

Oxjam Takeovers are amazing multi-venue extravaganzas that literally take over a town or city for the night, showcasing local emerging talent and raising lots of money for Oxfam.

Since 2009 these awesome writsband-access-all-areas gigs have entertained punters all the way from Shetland to Torquay, and you can be part of it all! We have over 50 Takeovers taking over towns and cities all over the UK, and our wonderful Takeover Managers are looking for a talented team of volunteers to help them put on an epic night of music!

It takes a whole team to create an Oxjam Takeover. We're now on the hunt for Fundraising Coordinators, Marketing Coordinators, Production Coordinators, Volunteer Coordinators and a multitude of other helpers.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of something really exciting. It'll give you well respected live events experience and the opportunity to learn new skills, as well as being loads of fun!

Key Roles

Fundraising coordinators are responsible for delivering the team's fundraising objective.  They design and implement a fundraising strategy to generate funds to cover team/event costs and to generate funds to cover team/event costs and to generate at least £1000 to donate to Oxfam pre-October.  This will include at least 3 fundraising events between June-September.

Volunteer coordinators will design and implement recruitment strategies to get volunteers involved in the right numbers at the right time.  They will identify where volunteers will be needed - fundraising events, promotions and event production will all rely on a lot of people power.

Marketing coordinators design and implement a strategy for promoting the Takeover event.  They work alongside the Fundraising Coordinators to coordinate and deliver a marketing plan for summer fundraising activities.  They will work with local media to promote the Takeover, and other Oxjam activity in the region.

Production coordinators have responsibility for the logistics of the Takeover event.  They will be in charge of booking venues and artists.  They will recruit and manage coordinators for each venue, who then manage artists, coordinate technical specifications, and stage-manage the venue on the day.
