2019 Volunteer Program
Do you believe in learning by doing? Are you looking for a volunteer position that will increase the credibility of your resume? Do you want to work with a Team that is passionate about improving that skills and career paths of University students? Then we want to hear from you!   

Each year we run approximately 20-30 events - most of them in Brisbane. Some of our events are for our clients but many are our own including generationYOU and Something Digital.

How the program works. 

>> Being on our team of volunteers will give you the opportunity to volunteer at 2-4 of our events throughout the course of the year.
>> Before volunteering at an event, all volunteers will be required to attend a briefing session to learn how we do things when running an event (understanding our running orders, how we do registration and other common tasks etc)
>> We will also give you an overview of the events we have coming up over the year so you can express interest in the types of events you are keen to volunteer at.
>> Some of our events are fairly simple and you will be briefed on the day for the tasks you need to carry out
>> For bigger events we may require a seperate briefing in advance but you will get plenty of warning if that is the case 
 
Whats in it for you?

>> Attending our very awesome events (we always make sure you get to benefit from the content of the event as well as the volunteering experience)
>> Behind the scenes insight into our how we run our events
>> Hands on event management experience

Still not sure? Listen check out what one of our past volunteers had to say ...
"Volunteering with Bright Conferences has given me the real-life practical experience I both need and want while I complete my event management studies. Not every company or large event will share with you their ninja-like organisational and logistical tactics, trust you with detailed (and a-m-a-z-i-n-g) run sheets or let you interact with and meet important stakeholders while you perform a hands-on role, but these guys sure do!

Trust me when I say that the Bright Conferences team are the people you want to learn from - they are innovative, methodical, inclusive and super experienced. Of course, there’s other excellent perks too (score an introduction to a major player in your industry AND maybe grab a cool drink at an afterparty? Yes, please!) and I have genuinely loved getting to know Lisa, Nadine and Saara and the other awesome volunteers. For me, it’s been a win-win."
