Many thanks for your interest in volunteering with Festival Medical Services. Our nursing team consists of hundreds of enthusiastic and professional nursing volunteers who share a passion for nursing and a love of festivals! 

As you can imagine we have a large number of volunteers (being one of the largest teams in the charity) and receive multiple requests to join FMS and our crew, especially around Glastonbury ticket sales and festival time! 


Our recruitment criteria changes depending on the skill balance of the team. At present we are only recruiting registered nurses who are currently working in Emergency Departments with at least two years' experience and competence working in Resus, Majors, Triage and Minors. We would also consider accepting dual qualified adult and children’s nurses who meet the above same criteria. We will only accept UK residents, absolutely no exceptions. 


Furthermore, we would consider applications from Emergency/Advanced Nurse Practitioners that are minor injury/illness trained and nurses with considerable experience working in relief organisations, defence services, or event healthcare.

Please read the volunteer agreement before applying
