Borneo Jazz volunteers sought to help at festival


KUCHING: Borneo Jazz is calling for energetic and dedicated volunteers who will be able to dedicate their time to help support the festival.

Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) said in a statement yesterday that volunteers will carry out a variety of tasks that require physical, technical and interpersonal skills.

They will be provided with a volunteer pass, two festival T-shirts, meal allowance and a volunteer’s certificate.

“Being a volunteer is one of the best ways to support the festival. lt gives an opportunity for volunteers to work together as a team providing excellent service to the audience, performers, media and festival guests,” said a spokesman.

He added that volunteers can also make new friends and enjoy the music.

The spokesman said most volunteers from past festivals have commented that they obtained invaluable experiences from the volunteering programme.

Application forms are available from or by calling the secretariat on 082-423600.

The closing date for applications is April 12 and successful applicants would be notified through email or by telephone.
