Student Workers


Welcome to the Corpus May Ball Student Workers section of the website. We look forward to working with you to deliver the best possible May Ball at Corpus this year! All roles will give workers great professional and teamwork experience, a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience Corpus May Ball 2022, and competitive rates of pay to reflect the importance of your work at the ball. Please see role descriptions below. Applications for Team Supervisors will close at 23:59 on 31st January 2022 and for all other roles at 23:59 on 18th February 2022.

Pay: Team Supervisors will receive £14/hr. Other roles will be paid at the competitive rate of £10.0 /hr. The pay period for those working the whole May Ball will be from 8:30pm to 6am and, during your breaks, refreshments will be provided for you by the Committee. As is standard for many May Balls, successful applicants will be required to submit a deposit cheque to cover a ticket cost*. There can be a slight delay in obtaining chequebooks from some banks so we suggest you request one urgently. If you have any queries or concerns, please direct enquiries to Thank you, and we look forward to receiving your application!

  • General workers

    General workers are the backbone of the staffing team at Corpus May Ball and may be called upon to assist in a variety of roles including assisting with stall changes, keeping stalls fully stocked, litter-picking, and working in the cloakroom. You may also be asked to undertake some of the less pleasant jobs at the ball, however you will be compensated additionally should you wish to be part of that specialist team.

  • Stewards

    Stewards will work directly with the security team to ensure the safety of the ball for all our staff and guests. This will include checking wristbands, ensuring health and safety rules are being followed, and assisting the security team in the event of an emergency.

  • Events Steward

    Events stewards will work alongside the Ents team to manage the queuing and safety of the various Ents around the May Ball site. We are looking for friendly but firm individuals to manage queues, the number of guests allowed on the Ents at any one time and ensuring that we comply with relevant safety regulations to ensure the safety of all guests and staff.

  • Food and Drinks Server

    This role will include serving food and drink to guests, including in the queue as guests enter the Ball, keeping stalls well-stocked, and ensuring that health regulations relating to food and drink are adhered to. This role will require friendly workers who are able to work well within a team. No hospitality experience is necessary, although it would certainly be beneficial.

  • Team Supervisors

    Our Team Supervisors are the glue that holds the whole staffing team together. This role requires strong leadership and teamwork skills as well as the ability to organise both yourself, and others. Communication will be absolutely vital in this role as you will be interacting not only with the dozens of staff within your own teams, but also with various members of the May Ball Committee, security team, and Corpus Christi College staff. The extra responsibility that this role entails is reflected by the requirement to undertake an interview with members of the May Ball Committee. Each Team Supervisor will take control of one of the three broad teams of staff: Stewards, General Workers, and Food and Drink.

  • Set-up/take-down

    Obviously, a May Ball requires a massive amount of work simply to get to the point where we can open the doors to our guests. The set-up and take-down teams will assist the logistics team in organizing the placement of tables, chairs, bins, stalls, marquees, and anything else that needs to be brought onto the May Ball site and positioned prior/after the Ball. Please note, this role will involve heavy lifting/carrying.


*All Workers will be required to deposit with the Committee one personal insurance cheque for £160 (amounting to the total price of a Corpus May Ball ticket), made payable to ‘Corpus May Ball Committee’ as a guarantee of good behaviour. The cheques will be destroyed at the end of your shift unless your supervisor or a member of the Committee considers that you have broken the terms of your contract: this includes drinking alcohol or any form of obnoxious behaviour.
