Event Support Volunteer, Writers’ Centre Norwich
Writers’ Centre Norwich is looking for a core group of volunteers to support the delivery of a wide range of literature events over May-July 2014. Comprising events in Norwich as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, Worlds, UEA’s Festival of Literature for Young People, and the Summer Reads programme, you will gain experience of all aspects of event support, including running, venue set-up, artist liaison, promotion, Front of House responsibilities, and data capture.
You will receive an induction into the organisation, attend a training day and will have a named member of staff support you during your volunteering sessions.
This is a perfect opportunity for someone looking to develop a career in the arts and who wants to gain experience of running events. You will bring with you a strong interest in contemporary literature and a passion for the artistic and social value of writing and reading. You will be flexible and detail orientated, keen to respond to challenges and work in a high pressure environment to produce exceptional events.
