The crew are the backbone of any convention and in the past we have sought the help of volunteers to run the event. We’ve always said that the event would never run without them and if we could – we would pay our crew.
Well, now we can! So it’s time to change the game a little bit and put our money where our mouths are.
From Island Con 2018 – ALL crew members will be paid the minimum wage for their age categories for the time they help out on the set-up day and event days.
Each crew member will be employed by the mother ship (Alliance Conventions) for a contracted amount of hours during the event weekend. Crew also still receive benefits of a crew tee and special access to our guests, after show parties/gatherings and more!
There will be many people applying to be crew at the event so please ensure to follow the simple rules before you do, you must be:
- 16yrs or over to apply.
- Based on the Isle of Wight.
- Available for at least one of the set up or event days.
- Passionate about Island Con.
Once you have been accepted as a crew member you will be invited to join an Island Con Crew group on Facebook where you can meet everyone and get involved in the fun! If you haven’t been accepted for whatever reason do understand that we can’t take on everyone who applies but we would still hope to see you at the event.
