Auckland Major Events
Help make Auckland events great.
Team AKL is the volunteer group for major events run by Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED).
Becoming part of Team AKL gives you a chance to be at the heart of what’s going on in Auckland – meet new people, be at the centre of action at these great events, and help make Auckland a great place to live, work, study and visit.
If you’re enthusiastic and passionate about exciting events and everything Auckland, we would like to hear from you.
Team AKL volunteers work across a range of jobs, from being festival ambassadors, providing event information and assisting with workshops, to managing the lost children tents.
The time commitment is flexible. Some volunteers might work one four-hour shift during an event, while others might work multiple shifts on every day of the event, as their time allows.
We need volunteers for the following Auckland events – DHL New Zealand Lions Series 2017 (city ambassadors and fan trail/fanzones), Auckland Diwali, Lantern and Pasifika festivals, Tāmaki Herenga Waka Festival and fan days for events like the ITM Auckland SuperSprint.
Once you have applied, we will email you the link to the Ministry of Justice third party check we require for all volunteers.
Then we will keep you updated by email about the different events, volunteer shifts and other information. You will be able to select which events and which roles you would like to volunteer for.
You will also need to attend a volunteer briefing before each event you work on.
Team AKL is an important part of what makes our events special and makes them a success. We’d love to have you as part of the team!
