As well as the plethora of new talent we bring to our Truck stages, we feel it’s equally important to nurture talent behind the scenes and give young people a ‘foot in the door’ opportunity into the live music and events industry.
Truck has worked alongside partners such as BIMM Institute and Oxford Brookes University to offer 60 undergraduate paid placement opportunities since 2014. The festival gives placement students the opportunity to build upon their skills and practical experience in the events industry.
Roles are available across many departments of the festival and include:
Graduates work closely with experienced members of the Truck team, taking on a variety of tasks in a fast paced and busy environment, as a festival we pride ourselves on giving hands on opportunities to undergraduates, allowing them to take full ownership and accountability for their work. We believe in being thrown in at the deep end!
Each year Truck works with local Volunteers offering students, graduates and the local community the chance to gain experience and insight in working on a festival site.
Volunteers work alongside organisers and ticket companies whilst problem solving in high energy environments. Roles range from wristbanding to customer arrival support and in exchange for completed shifts the volunteers will gain entry to the festival.

Truck is dedicated to helping event managers of the future. Over the years we receive numerous emails from students across the country with queries and interview requests to help with their degree research and/or dissertations. We are always happy to help where we can and give students the best understanding of what it’s like to be part of this truly unique industry.
