Volunteers are responsible for their own expenses including meals, phone calls and parking. There are a small number of positions that come with a modest honorarium to cover petrol and mobile phone costs and food vouchers if working long or awkward hours. These are negotiated on a case by case basis.

Dress Code

You will be issued with a FoV t-shirt or vest and volunteer pass. While you are working in an official capacity you must wear both T-Shirt/vest, volunteer pass with black trousers, black jeans or skirt and black thermals or skivvy and scarves. The colour code is all black under your FoV clothes. Layer up because it can be cold. Adhering to the dress code is important. It clearly identifies you as FoV crew and it looks smart and professional. If you are taking time off in the club for a drink and a hang out please take your T-shirt off so the public don’t think you are working.
