Staffing Opportunities

STAFF OPENINGS.

Thank you for taking an interest in being a part of our wonderful Anthro New England con staff! Our team is committed to giving our attendees the best experience possible. As such, we hold our staff to a very high standard.

ANE staff roles are volunteer positions, but there are rewards for being staff – read on to see what staffing a con entails as well as what benefits come along with the positions.

Please review the below information in full before submitting an application – it’s important you understand the full extent of what your role entails!

ANE Staff members all hugging
STAFF RESPONSIBILITIES.
  • Anthro New England staffers are held to a standard of behavior above our attendees. You must have a good attitude, be willing to work as part of a team, and be able to communicate!
  • Anthro New England staffers are expected to work for a significant part of each day at the convention. Generally a minimum of eight hours per day is typical. Exceptions include those roles that put in similar hours before the convention.
  • Prospective staff members should have a general idea of what position they feel they would fit in, even if that position is “general support person.”
  • Prospective staff members should be prepared to attend online meetings ahead of the convention; we do not require that you attend every meeting, and meetings are not very frequent, but these are helpful to keep all staffers informed.

Being a staffer is a commitment and is not for everyone! Volunteer positions are always available if you still want to pitch in but would prefer a lower-commitment role. If you are interested, however, please peruse our open positions below!

  • Con Staff T-Shirt
  • Attendee Level Registration
  • Other Perks (TBD)

In addition, Core Staff will receive:

  • Staff Hotel Room Space (Shared with other staff)

GAMES ROOM STAFF.
Help us run a comfortable gaming space for both board games and video games.

VOLUNTEER STAFF.
Someone has to wrangle all our volunteers – why not you?

We are looking for people with good organization and customer service skills. This position requires an at-con commitment of 6-20 hours depending on your preferences/availability, and is considered a Seasonal Staff position.
SOCIAL MEDIA STAFF.
Copley needs some help; our Social Media is more than one deer can handle! Social Media staffers will support our Social Media lead by helping disseminate information on our various social channels. Experience with Instagram and TikTok is highly sought; experience running official accounts on Twitter, Telegram and Facebook is a must! Please provide your experience when you apply. This position requires an at-con commitment to keeping up with our Social Media Requests channel, and is considered a Seasonal Staff position.
GOH RELATIONS STAFF.
The GoH relations team deals with all of our GoHs’ needs – whether it’s guiding them to their panels, answering questions, or just providing general support. This position reports to our GoH Liaison, and will require an at-con commitment of a few hours. This is a Seasonal Staff position.
HEAD OF HOTEL RELATIONS.
This is a new position created this year, as we move to the new hotel! Our Head of Hotel Relations will act as a liaison between us and the hotel, whether that’s for additional water requests, temperature change requests, additional items needed at-con, setup change requests, or anything else that may arise. People with hotel experience/experience in a similar role preferred. This position may require a big time commitment at-con, depending on how many things pop up, so the person in this role must be flexible and willing to adapt on the fly. This is a core staff position.
