Participation and Communications Volunteer Opportunities for the summer term 2017

An opportunity to gain valuable experience within a leading community dance company working with children, young people and older adults.


At Green Candle we believe in providing professional development opportunities and experiences for dance artists new to the field, or looking to enhance their knowledge. We are currently looking for two participation and communications volunteers to join our team for the summer term 2017. This is a unique chance for artists to gain practical learning and leadership skills in the community arts. We are seeking enthusiastic and motivated individuals who can assist in the delivery of weekly sessions for a variety of groups, and support the office with communications and general administrative support.

These two new roles are suitable for those interested in developing skills working with children and young people, older people and those with dementia. Candidates will assist classes led by the Green Candle team at our home in Bethnal Green as well as a in a variety of settings in the community, including care homes, day centres, nursing homes and schools.

Both candidates will need to be available for two days a week from Tuesday Thursday and Friday consistently throughout the summer term, which runs from week commencing 24th April to end of July 2017 (specific dates will be confirmed nearer the time).

The opportunity to assist will offer the successful candidates the chance to experience dance delivery in a variety of contexts. Due to the nature of the environment where our dance sessions take place, we expect the candidates to be open-minded and have a warm friendly persona.

Candidates must hold a current enhanced DBS certificate. This is an unpaid position; however, the Company will cover travel expenses within London.

If you are interested in applying for this position, please send your CV and a covering letter outlining your reason for applying to or call 0207 739 7722 for more information.

Application deadline: 12pm Monday 20th March 2017

Interviews: Friday 31st March 2017 by invitation only at Oxford House, Bethnal Green.
