Maid Cafe Roles
So you want to apply for the maid cafe? FANTASTIC! But there are so many roles? Where will you go? What will you do? Below are some of the roles and their outlines.


Maid/Butler
Maids and Butlers will be in front of house or back of house. It is their duty to take orders, bring out food to the customers, perform maid charms and to interact with customers. You also may have the opportunity to perform a dance, this is not a requirement.

Entertainer/Performer
This role requires you to learn a dance. You will also play games on stage, participate in Q&A sessions and compete in competitions with other maids/butlers and guests.

Stage Host
Stage hosts will commentate the stage events, introduce performances and interact with the entertainers/performers. Great banter and stage personalities are a must!

Agreement
As part of being an AVCon maid, you will be required to attend ONE training seminar alongside other AVCon volunteers in order to be cleared to work at the event. There will be multiple seminars to choose from on different days (of which you only need to attend one). Failure to attend will result in being removed from the maid pool. Dates/locations for the seminars will be announced at a future date, but will most likely be in the weeks leading up to the convention and will be in Adelaide. Attendance to one of these training seminars is non-negotiable as they are required for WHS and insurance purposes. A section of these seminars involve taking part in no pressure & fun team building exercises. There wil be mandatory group interviews that you are required to attend. We consider these a great way for you to break the ice and get to know your fellow maids & volunteers, as well as a vital part of our overall team building process. Please be aware that it is expected that you attend the seminars and take part in activities. Also keep in mind, the AVCon maid café prides itself on our presentation to the public and our ability to replicate what makes authentic Japanese maid cafés so popular, as part of this we may require maids to purchase their uniforms if they are accepted as part of the maid café. You may also be able to use a pre-existing maid's uniform that you already own, but this is up to the discretion of the head of maids café.
Required
Should you be accepted do you consent to undergoing a Police check?
Those who are accepted into the Maid's Cafe and are over the age of 17 will be required to undergo a Police Check or provide a current and valid Police Check.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to Purchase a ticket still?

You are not required to buy a ticket as a AVCon Volunteer.


When will we find out if we have been accepted?

Applicants are scheduled to be notified of the status of their application in April 2017


What do we get for working in the Maids Cafe?

All Maids will be provided with a free T-Shirt and lunch on the weekend, early access to the convention, valuable workplace experience as well as great memories and other cool perks.

Please also keep in mind that your performance will be assessed and failure to complete your shifts without valid reason will negatively impact future volunteer opportunities within AVCon.


Do I have to do anything before the convention to prepare?

Yes, firstly you will have to attend the aforementioned training session and participate. Secondly, the AVCon maid café prides itself on our presentation to the public and our ability to replicate what makes authentic Japanese maid cafés so popular, as part of this we may require maids to purchase their uniforms if they are accepted as part of the maid café. You may be able to use a pre-existing maid's uniform that you already own, but this is up to the discretion of the head of maids cafe.

Lastly there will be a few meet-ups and other fun events which you are encouraged to come to and are considered vital to working as a maid at AVCon, so please keep this in mind when applying.


What happens if something comes up and I can no longer be a maid?

If you are accepted as a maid and then for whatever reason something comes up which prevents you from working on AVCon weekend, just tell us prior to the event and we will sort it out, not an issue.


I'm also doing X, Y & Z role at AVCon, can I work in the Maids Cafe?

It depends, for example ceremonies team members are welcome to work in the cafe as their work shouldn't overlap with being a maid, but general volunteers wouldn't have the time. It's best to ask your relevant committee member, or the head of Maids Cafe first.


I still have more questions!

Shoot an email to the head of Maid's Cafe Phong Hoàng (Phong.hoang@avcon.org.au) or the Volunteer Coordinator Ripley Newbold (ripley.newbold@avcon.org.au)
