Mardi Gras Volunteers

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras relies on over 2000 volunteers to make our world famous festival and events the success that they are year after year.  When you volunteer with us, you’ll be making a difference for our organisation and the community as a whole.

We are committed to making your volunteering experience something to remember.  The newly formed People and Culture team has been formed to help personalise your volunteering experience and make participating as easy as possible whilst also ensuring that we deliver a well organised, professional and safe environment for our community at our festival and events.

Why volunteer?

We understand that people volunteer with us for all kinds of reasons; some do it for the experience and others to give back to their community.  Volunteering with us is a rewarding experience where you make life-long friends and develop new skills.  Whatever your reason, we’re here to help personalise your experience and make your experience a rewarding and memorable one.

There are a lot of different ways you can get involved and be a part of SGLMG.

Event Day Opportunities: Throughout the season we have a huge range of events. You can volunteer for just one or if you have more time available you can volunteer for a few more.  All our event day opportunities are recruited through MyMardiGras.  You can register your details and when events are released you will be able to express your interest.

Career Opportunities: Occasionally SGLMG has paid career opportunities in a variety of leadership, professional and skilled roles. For more information or to see what opportunities currently exist click here.
