Volunteering opportunities

During the European Championships, the very best riders of Europe compete for gold together with their horses, both individually and as a team. In order for an event such as the European Championships to succeed, the organization depends to a large extent on volunteers for carrying out tasks in front of and behind the scenes. That is why the organization is looking for enthusiastic and motivated volunteers to contribute to the success of the European Championships in 2019.

For the European Championships we are looking for volunteers for the following functions:

Media team: The media team is responsible for the execution of the total media and communication during the event. Within the media team, the following functions exist: website management, photography, photo editing and reception of the press.

Service staff: The service staff are the face of the event, they work at various positions on the ground. Think of scanning cards at the entrance, checking maps at the stands, occupying the information desk and they are present at various intersections on the grounds to show visitors the way.

Shuttle service: From the various hotels and parking spaces there is a shuttle service to and from the European Championship grounds. Employees of the shuttle service take care of transport for participants, employees and VIPs in particular.
