UK Challenge 2018 - USW Student Marshals. We Need You!

April 4, 2018

Wales, 5th – 8th July 2018: We Need You!

The country’s leading team development event. 3 days of physical and mental team challenges ranging from running and canoeing to anagrams and riddles, will test every core skill you have spent your careers & lives perfecting; fitness is not enough, you will need patience, strategy, humility, leadership, intelligence, compassion but most of all teamwork.

Taking place this July, the event has already confirmed 85 teams including Accenture, Adidas, Airbus, CGI, Clinigen, Investec, JLR, Manchester City FC, Mitre Group, PwC, RAF, Scottish Power, Tesco, T-Systems and Waitrose. The University of South Wales’ Treforest facilities will form the residential ‘base camp’ welcoming around 650 attendees in total, with epic challenges at external stage venues across the region.

We are now looking for Marshals to support the UK Challenge Team and experience this incredible event from the inside! The volunteers will be required on site from the afternoon of Wednesday 4th July until the afternoon of Sunday 8th July 2018, in very hands on roles, dealing with confidential information. In return, marshals will receive payment of circa £180, on site (single ensuite) accommodation for the duration, all meals, full event kit, the opportunity to gain experience and network, as well as an invitation to the Gala Party on the Saturday evening.

There are four categories of Marshals:

  • Stage Team Marshals
  • Logistics Marshals
  • Movement Marshals
  • Start & Finish Marshals

Each role requires a varying skill set and characteristics including enthusiasm, reliability, able to perform manual handling tasks, clean driving licence, ambitious, well organised, excellent communicator, strategic/logistic mind-set, problem-solving, project management, hands on, operational, prepared to work outdoors and long hours!

A presentation and selection process will take place in April to those interested. If you are biting at the bit already wanting to sign up please complete this survey.

Queries can be passed to Gemma Savage at or on 01443 4 82002.
