Control Room Kiltie

Do you long to be at the heart of everything Kiltwalk? Then joining the Kiltwalk as a Control Room Kiltie is just the role for you

The Event Control Room (ECR) is a busy hub of activity, the heartbeat of the event.

All communications on the event day go through the control room, Control Room Kilties are essential in providing support to staff in the ECR by monitoring and recording telephone and radio comms throughout the event. You will also be required to liaise with emergency services and monitor the progress of the walk by staying in regular contact with the Lead Bike Kiltie and Back Marker Kiltie.

Due to the nature of the role, to become a Control Room Kiltie you will need to pass a phone interview.
