I randomly came across Big Help Mob, and thought, Holy Bungle, my inability to fly doesn’t exclude me from being a superhero. As a Captain I organise a buttload of people to do a buttload of good on Big Help Mob missions. This one time, on a mission, a sidekick got taken. Thankfully, I now have a particular set of skills, skills that I’ve acquired over a short period of Big Help Mob training. Skills that make me a nightmare for people that try to ruin the mission. You too shall acquire these skills, and gain the ability to ensure all missions are successful, and AWESOME. Good luck.
Big Help Mob has the goal of making doing good stuff as mainstream as cheeseburgers and breathing. If you reckon this sounds like a pretty sweet idea and you’d like to play an essential role in making it happen, you should definitely be a Captain. Whether it’s 5 people painting a fence or 1000 people knitting a giant woolly jumper for a cold, lonely giant, every Big Help Mob mission needs a switched on captain to bring it to life. You don’t need to be a CEO, Napoleon or Oprah to be a Captain, but it’s not for the faint-hearted.
- Lead volunteer missions on the ground at least once per month after their Flying Lesson (it’s a bit like a school for superheroes).
- Work together in a really motivated team of other Captains to plan missions and devise new ways of making fun, social and rewarding volunteering experiences that make people want to come back and volunteer more.
- Are the tremendously reliable, very communicative and awfully friendly points of contact for mission Masterminds (the people getting helped)
- Make sure all the sidekicks are safe and on task during missions (we don’t want people painting old ladies instead of painting fences) and use their powers of thoughtfulness, non-favouritism and not-being-a-douche to ensure that ALL their Sidekicks feel invincible.
- Think quickly on their feet (or hands) even when people around them are confused, yelling wildly, and curling up in the fetal position.
- Do what they say they will do, love working in teams of people and genuinely want to be useful to others and the planet.

Please note: you must be based in Perth, Western Australia and over 18 to be a Captain. Don’t worry, your under 18 friends can still come to missions, they just can’t be Captains. This rule might change though so get in touch with Kristen if you’re mega keen: email@example.com.
