Become part of Team Apex

Can you help us stage one of the UK's biggest and most talked about adventure competitions? Every year hundreds of young people take on the ultimate adventure of competing in the Apex Challenge, and the quality of their experience depends on having the right volunteers to make it happen.

We would love to hear from you if you can help us out at either our next event or at future events. You might have particular skills that we can borrow or maybe you are just a willing pair of hands, ready to turn them to whatever task we need help with.

Some of the tasks include:

  • Rigging up large obstacles and assault courses. (DIY skills useful but not essential.)
  • Helping our catering team feed hundreds of hungry competitors (You may be cooking, you may be serving.)
  • Acting as a marshal (We need friendly faces to greet teams and point them in the right direction.)
  • Apex chasers (Some events involve a chase and hide element. Keen runners welcomed!)
  • Photographers and film makers. (We need lots of dynamic pictures and footage of teams competing.)
  • Electrical rigging and wiring. (Can you help fit out a huge marquee with lighting and sound kit?. Electrical skills not-essential.)
  • Shopkeeper. (Are you good at selling? We have a shop full of Apex T-shirts for people to buy!)
  • Litter pickers. (Not all the jobs are glamorous sadly but they’re still important.)
  • Event planning. (Anyone with ideas and some time to help us plan the events is always welcome.)

There’s a huge range of jobs to help us with. We would love to hear from you and what skills you have and how we could make use of them. Please contact us using the form below. Don’t worry. You’re not signing your life away, but this could be the start of a great new adventure for you too!
