Roles to match your skills

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, although kudos if you are. You just need oodles of energy, a sense of purpose and desire to pay it forward.

The techies

You love gadgets, work in tech or simply like robots. You’ll troubleshoot and provide technical support, so teams and their bots are game ready.

The gamers

You like to be at the heart of the action! On the game field or running matches like clockwork, you’ll keep scores in check and call out foul play.

The organisers

You have an unhealthy appreciation for spreadsheets and to-do lists. Flex your project management muscles and keep the show going.

We’ve got you covered

Not sure you’re cut out for the job? Join one of our volunteering webinars to find out more. Most roles are trained with just 45 minutes of e-learning. You’ll be connected with an A-Team leader to lean on too We even feed you and kit you out in a limited edition MoreThanRobots tshirt! Snazzy.
