Oxjam are offering an exciting new volunteer opportunity which may be ideal work experience for visitors to and members of the Leeds Music Scene website.

Oxfam will provide training and support to the home-based Regional Manager in organising multi-venue music events in the Leeds area.

Oxjam is Oxfam's month long music festival. Every year hundreds of music-lovers, all across the UK, organise local music events throughout the month of October. All the proceeds from these events go to Oxfam to help fight poverty and improve the lives of the world's poorest people.

The highlight of the festival is the 35 city-wide Oxjam Takeover events: amazing multi-venue one-ticket-gives-access-to-all (think Camden Crawl or Live At Leeds) events in 35 towns and cities organised by the volunteer Oxjam Regional Managers and their enthusiastic teams.

The deadline for applications is today, Sunday 14th March 2010, so act quickly!
