Call for Poppies Ambassadors
Photograph by Major (Retd) Roy Bevan MBE

LIVERPOOL City Council is giving people the opportunity to be part of the Poppies team. Weeping Window, a moving installation of ceramic poppies, will be on display on the façade of St George's Hall from Saturday, 7 November 2015, and is part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red which was showcased at HM Tower of London in 2014.

The artwork will be on display in the City for 10 weeks and organisers are looking to recruit a large team of Event Ambassadors to make sure visitors receive an exceptional service when they come to see the poppies.

The role of the Ambassadors will be to welcome, inform and engage with members of the public and any volunteers will be given full training, guidance and supervision and will also get to meet the team behind the work before it is officially opened.

The team are looking for people with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, they also need to be enthusiastic and flexible.

Working in shifts of 4.5 hours, Ambassadors will be required throughout the installation of the Poppies to let people know what is happening, when it will be open and what other experiences of activities are going on in the City at that particular time.

Once Weeping Window has opened, Ambassadors will be on hand to give Poppies information to passing public, be the point of any contact for any pre-booked visits and ensure access to their designated viewing area, working with the onsite security team to ensure the smooth running of the queue and assisting any people with accessibility issues.

Anyone interested in being part of this important team can fill in the application form online in the 'Get Involved' section. Or send an email and the form will be sent out. Individuals won't be expected to work the full ten weeks and the form will give the applicant the chance to indicate their availability for the ten weeks. They will also be asked to tell the organisers in no more than 300 words why they want to be an Event Ambassador.

The deadline for applications is, 5pm, on Wednesday, 21 October 2016.

Assistant Mayor and cabinet member for culture, tourism and events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said;- "Volunteers play a vital role in our major events and the Poppies is no exception. We're expecting to be very busy across the 10 weeks, with thousands of people heading to St George's Hall, to not only admire this iconic piece of art, but also take time to remember those who lost their lives during conflict. The Event Ambassadors will play an integral frontline role and will really be the 'face' of the event as they welcome people to the area and help deal with any queries about the art work, or indeed the Hall or the City itself. This is a unique opportunity to be part of the Poppies Team and I hope that we have lots of enthusiastic applicants who would love the chance to show their pride in this City and make it an unforgettable experience for the tens of thousands of visitors we're expecting until January 2016."
