We are looking for a Participation and Communications Volunteer for the Spring Term 2019

An opportunity has arisen for someone 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 a Participation and Communications Volunteer to join our team for the Spring term 2019. 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 successful applicant 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 volunteer will need to be available on Tuesdays and Fridays consistently throughout the Spring term, which runs from week commencing Tuesday 15th January – 12th April 2019

The opportunity to assist will offer the successful volunteer 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 our volunteers 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 volunteering with us, please send your CV and a covering letter outlining your reason for applying to vicki@greencandledance.com or call 0207 739 7722 for more information.  Please state ‘Participation & Communications Volunteer’ as the subject of your email.

Application deadline: 12 noon Friday 25th January 2019

Interviews: Friday 1st February by invitation only at Oxford House, Bethnal Green, London, E2 6HG.

We are also looking for volunteers to help with our Remember to Dance sessions in Tower Hamlets on Fridays.  Find out more and apply
