Every year we have a group of student volunteers who help make Develop:Brighton run smoothly. Many of our previous volunteers now have positions within the games industry from contacts they made at the event.
We'd need you to be available from 2 - 6pm on Monday 10 July and then 8am - 6pm on Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 July. Plus, you'll be invited to various networking and social events in the evenings.
This is not a paid position and we cannot pay for travel expenses or provide accomodation, however you will be given an all access 3 day conference pass and we do try and ensure that our volunteers get to see their chosen sessions.
As a Develop:Brighton volunteer duties will include directing delegates around the venue, bag stuffing, handing out bags, t-shirts etc, guarding doors and scanning badges, monitoring sessions and assisting speakers amongst other things.
If you're interested in volunteering for this year's Develop:Brighton, please contact Ali Fearnley:

Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
A lot of the opportunities that come from being here are speaking to other developers who are doing exactly the same thing as you. And there are some good parties – it’s very much a pleasurable work experience!
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.

There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
Develop is an excellent way of catching up with people – there’s a really nice community feel here.

I absolutely love coming to Develop, it’s a brilliant, brilliant conference – you just know you’re guaranteed to meet everyone.
