New Opportunity – Participation and Communications volunteer – Summer Term 2018

Participation and Communications Volunteer Opportunity for the Summer term 2018

An opportunity for someone to gain valuable experience within Green Candle 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 a participation and communications volunteer to join our team for the Summer 2018. This is a unique chance for an artist to gain practical learning and leadership skills in the community arts. We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated individual who can assist in the delivery of weekly sessions for a variety of groups, and support the office with communications and general administrative support.

This role is suitable for those interested in developing skills working with children and young people and older people. The candidate will assist classes led by the Green Candle team at our home in Bethnal Green as well as in a variety of settings in the community that may include care homes, day centres, nursing homes and schools.

The candidate will need to be available on Tuesdays consistently throughout the summer term, which runs from week commencing Tuesday 17th April – Mid July.

The opportunity to assist will offer the successful candidate 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 candidate to be open-minded and have a warm, friendly persona. Because the successful applicant will be working with children and vulnerable adults, they 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: 12 noon Friday 6th April 2018

Interviews: Friday 13th April 2018 by invitation only at Oxford House, Bethnal Green, London, E2 6HG.
