UPDATE (August 24th 2020): Applications are now closed

 

The British Esports Association is ramping up its efforts for the 2020/21 school and college British Esports Championships. We’re introducing weekly stream broadcasts for the first time – and we need your help! 

We’re looking for volunteer casters, admins, content creators and more. Here’s how you can get involved.

 

Why get involved

This is a great opportunity for someone looking for more experience in esports and to work on an exciting, growing gaming project within schools and colleges.

Through volunteering for us, you can:

  • Meet like-minded people
  • Help support grassroots esports
  • Inspire students in schools and colleges 
  • Receive advice and network – get your foot in the door for possible future work in the esports industry
  • Gain valuable experience, as well as free safeguarding training and a DBS check. There may also be the chance for successful volunteers to receive merch discounts or other freebies in the future


If you’re someone who’s passionate about supporting grassroots esports and is looking to gain some experience, please look at the descriptions below and if interested, apply with a CV and cover letter on the respective Hitmarker job pages.

Please note: You must be aged 16 and above to volunteer. This is mainly for students looking for work experience. We have had more than 400 people express interest in volunteering for British Esports, and wanted to allow them to gain some work experience. These voluntary roles are not roles with heavy workloads. British Esports is a not-for-profit that has a growing team of paid staff and other paid roles may be added in the future.

 

What we’re looking for

 

Tournament admins

The British Esports Association is looking for volunteer admins who can work with a team to help support the schools and colleges participating in the 2020/21 British Esports Championships.

We’re looking for admins to operate around the three main titles in the British Esports Championships: Rocket League, Overwatch and League of Legends. Although each admin will be selected for a certain game, all admins should help each other with tickets and advice if they are available.

Existing British Esports admins will also be required to reapply for 2020/21, so the application process is fair and open to all.

 

Casters

We’re looking for volunteer play-by-play and colour casters who can work within a team to cast matches played by schools and colleges in our British Esports Championships.

We are looking for two casters in League of Legends, two casters in Overwatch and two casters in Rocket League.

 

Hosts

The British Esports Association is looking for part-time volunteer hosts who can work as part of a team to host British Esports Championships broadcasts.

We are looking for one host for League of Legends, one host for Overwatch and one host for Rocket League.

 

Stream producers

The British Esports Association is looking for a producer who can work with its team to help put together engaging and successful streams. 

 

Overwatch observers

The British Esports Association is looking for part-time volunteer observers who can work within a team to observe Overwatch matches played by schools and colleges in the British Esports Championships. 

 

Match report writers

The British Esports Association is looking for part-time volunteer match report writers who can review our British Esports Championships broadcasts and recap the action from a particular week or event. 

 

Video editors

The British Esports Association are looking for video editors who can work with a team to edit esports-related footage for the British Esports Championships and beyond.

 

Graphic designers

The British Esports Association is looking for graphic design part-time volunteers who can work with a team to create esports-related imagery for our various channels. 

 

Additional Information

These are voluntary roles and as such there may be other ways for you to get involved with British Esports in the future.

British Esports is looking to fill these volunteer positions around its 2020/21 British Esports Championships for schools and colleges.

Please note: We can only appoint volunteers who are not currently playing for a team in the British Esports Championships.

 

Hear from current and past volunteers

“Volunteering with British Esports was an invaluable experience. Volunteering as an admin for the British Esports Championships helped me learn more about the esports industry, develop my skills and connections, along with giving me new opportunities and chances to succeed. 

Through volunteering and taking on responsibilities, I’ve gathered new skills and confidence. And when a paid opportunity arose at British Esports, I applied for it and got it!”
Alice Leaman, school and college liaison officer, British Esports

 

“Volunteering for the British Esports Association is a fantastic way to gain experience and build relationships within the esports industry. All the staff there are very welcoming and friendly and are more than happy to assist you wherever they can. I was personally able to work on my video editing skills and techniques and gain valuable feedback from professionals within the association who helped me to elevate the content I produced for them.

“I also got the opportunity to get involved in other projects, such as hosting a live video editing class on the British Esports stream and competing in their show matches. Overall, if you have an interest in working in the esports industry are looking for somewhere to start, I can’t recommend the British Esports Association highly enough.”

Saul ‘Spyran’ Parsons, video editor and streamer

 

“The British Esports Association has helped give me a chance to not just show off what I can do, but be able to work with other like-minded people who have our best interests in mind, alongside delivering professional looking tournaments and events.”
Layla “TamashiiKanjou” Abbott, Splatoon 2 game adviser at British Esports, and caster and streamer (see Layla’s Splatoon takeover stream here)
