If you would like to support us on the next Anime Flea Market as a volunteer, simply write us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind, however, that you must be at least 16 years old and be able to speak German and at least rudimentary English.
For these task areas people are searched.
The information & the stands
During the flea market itself, our volunteers at the information have to give visitors information about all sorts of things. For this, it is important that they have familiarized themselves with all the rules in advance and know everything about the individual areas and activites. All the information is sent to them a few weeks before the Anime Flea Market, so that they have time to look at everything and read through it all. So possible unanswered questions can also be clarified.
The information also conduce as a cloakroom for us and therefore it is one of the tasks to receive the clothes and luggage of the visitors and to take care of them, too.
The division manager of this scope is also the person who regulates and organises the assembly the dismantling of the stands. He/She has all the information about the sellers with an own and he/she is also the very first to enter the building of the Anime Flea Market early in the morning.
We have had the experience that most people react very understanding when you request them for something. However, there are sometimes exceptions. Therefore, as controllers we are looking for people who remain friendly even in strenuous situations, but can still prevail.
We also do not plan to include jumpers in the assembly or dismantling. So it may well happen that these helpers will have nothing to do. As jumpers, we are looking for people for whose these two extremes are acceptable.
The division manager here has to accomplish the difficulty to provide jumpers with the necessary knowledge for each task area. They definitly need to be prepared for several tasks, but not all of them at the same time. This has to be divided among the jumpers.
In addition, reliability and willingness to communicate are extremely important. If you want to insert a function on the website, the details must be clarified with the appropriate people and others from the team must be able to contact you by e-mail and, if necessary, by phone. We also expect our website helpers to give status updates by themselves on their work and feedback in general.
Several weeks before the registration forms with the GTC appear on our website, our helpers at the Bring&Buy already receive them and have to read them through. Only in this way they are able to check and get our rules through at the Anime Flea Market. We also expect them to be good at mental arithmetic, so that they can quickly calculate prices and give customers the right change.
The volunteers of the gaming area meet a few times throughout the year to learn the games. As a rule, those who have been with us for a long time can explain and play all the ones we offer. On the other hand, new helpers are always assigned very few games so it doesn’t become to much for them.
Rainbow Cake ~ Maid- & Butler Café
Our Maids and Butler meet several times before the Anime Flea Market for a rehearsal of the cooking. At these meetings new recipes will be tested and you also learn the different methods of preparation of the dishes. Similar to the gaming area, all people will never have to be able to do anything here and instead we will distribute exactly who is responsible for what.
For the Rainbow Cake there are clear specifications for the outfits. Here you also have the choice whether you want to prepare your own outfit within the bounds of these specifications or get one of ours which we provide for free. You also need a certificate of instruction of the infection protection law from the German health department (German: “Belehrung nach dem Infektionsschutzgesetz”). If you don’t have such a certificate, we’ll help you get it.
As a peculiarity, you always have to translate all texts into English, too. In order to avoid discrepancy, the translations should always be as accurate as possible. Please don’t be deterred by this! Our experience is that the biggest challenge here is the own insecurity. You also get support from the other copywriters.
Please also keep in mind that you can only formulate advertising texts for the Anime Flea Market if you know the event. Accordingly, you will have to work into many topics at the beginning.
We are specifically looking for someone who already has experience and is not a newcomer. This means that you should have worked with image editing programs and created graphics such as logos, flyers, header images or the like before. Therefore, please let us also receive samples of your work so that we can assess whether our expectations match with each other.
