New Volunteer Opportunity at Green Candle

Volunteer Dance Assistant Opportunity for the Autumn term 2019

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 one or two Volunteer Dance Assistants for the 2019 Autumn term.

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 and support the office with project administration.

This role is suitable for those interested in developing skills working with older people. The successful applicant(s) will work with Spinoff Green Candle’s long established over 55’s performance group, assist at other dance sessions in and around East London, and will support the Green Candle office with general project administration tasks.

Ideally the applicant(s) will be available on Mondays from 10-12pm and Tuesdays from 9.30 – 5pm consistently throughout the term, from week commencing Monday 14th October – Tuesday 17th December. However, we are flexible on how these sessions might be covered by the successful applicant(s).

The opportunity to assist will offer the successful applicant(s) the chance to experience dance delivery for older people. Due to the nature of the environment where our dance sessions take place, we expect the applicant(s) to be open-minded and have a warm, friendly persona. Because the successful applicant will be working with 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 with ‘Autumn -Volunteer Dance Assistant’ in the email subject header or call 0207 739 7722 for more information.

Application deadline: Friday 4th October

Interviews: Wednesday 9th October (afternoon)

Start date:  Monday 14th October
