Vivid Sydney Festival 2016 – My Volunteering Experience

Vivid Sydney Volunteer Story

“I had very little volunteering experience when I applied for Vivid Sydney through I Need Helpers, so I was ecstatic when my application got accepted, I thought to myself that this was going to be a great opportunity.

At my first shift I walked over to The Rocks, excited and a little bit nervous, who was I going to meet, what would the I Need Helpers team be like, what would my team leader be like and my fellow volunteers.”

When managing drivers and ground logistics staff it is always a challenge to know exactly where they are or how long they will take to arrive.

Outdated SMS Information: Solved!

Things are always changing in events… So what if we need to change something after it was sent via SMS? We’ve used tech to solve that problem.

Volunteer Application Behaviour

first post

The I Need Helpers’ Team has been pretty nerdy lately!

We’ve been reviewing the application behaviour of volunteers over the last 8 months, which has been pretty interesting – in a nerdy way! From the results, we’ve tested a new field in the application process, which we’ve had in place for the last three events. This field has seen a significant decrease in cancelation rates (something all volunteer programs will be presented with at some stage!).

Virtual Currency

We’re introducing a virtual currency to INH Opportunities… feedback from students has been great so far!

“[virtual currency helps].. shape user behavior, and increase use retention and engagement.”

http://mediatemple.net/blog/tips/how-to-introduce-virtual-currency-into-your-community-the-right-way/

We’ve introduced an exciting way to reward our students for their industry involvements and, combined with industry hours, give students priority for future positions (paid and voluntary)! ‘INH Points’ are accumulated through paid and volunteer involvements (1 shift = 5 INH Points) and can be exchanged for resources, tickets to INH run networking events and much much more!! It’s not only experience you will be receiving with us – it’s a community to help build your knowledge and to assist you in gaining future employment.
INH Points can also be purchased for $1 each; however, we are restricting purchases until we’ve distributed 10,000 INH Points to give those who are actively participating priority and to build the worth of the virtual currency.

INH Mail

The I Need Helpers’ team has our won in-built messaging system for INH Opportunities. Following tech trends for Y-Gen and the shift between email and instant messaging… we’re super excited to have just uploaded this change to our system.

Our First Post! xxo

first post

Well, that’s not actually true, after upgrading our servers we will be starting a fresh on this section of the site!

This will not only allow us to include on trend and current information, but allow us to latest statistics from our involvement with the Victorian Major events sector.

We hope that you find this section of our site useful in the planning and engagement of episodic volunteers for the tourism and events sector of Australia. INH xxo
