Rendezvous jobs are a labor of love. If you care about the event and would like to be of service in a leadership role, then perhaps a Rendezvous job is for you. We generally prefer to hire folks who are familiar with the event and already a part of the community.
The Work Crew Coordinator works pre-event to acquire the appropriate number of people needed to fill all work crew positions (partial and full), including sending emails, making phone calls, sending out, receiving, and processing applications, and assessing skills and fit. This person works in conjunction with the General Coordinator, Site Manager, and Financial Coordinator. They also attend the full event beginning at set-up and are available to help navigate any work crew changes or issues as needed, making sure that all positions are filled for break-down as well.
