Variety of Volunteers for Charity
We are producing a charity showcase in London. We are a small charity that has been running for 2 years. The charity is run entirely by volunteers until we get capital project funding. During our time we have secured two grants for showcases which supported the hiring of the venue.
Bashir Productions currently have several exciting opportunities for people who are interested in a career in Theatre, and would like to develop their skills and understanding of the various aspects of theatre production and administration and gain some invaluable hands-on experience.
No previous qualifications or experience are necessary (although if you have them, that’s obviously a bonus!) and we welcome people from all backgrounds, disciplines and abilities. We are looking for people with a strong interest in theatre, who are not afraid of hard work, can use their initiative, work well in a team, and keep a sense of humour under pressure!
Whilst we would expect our volunteers to be involved in all departments, areas covered would include:
1. Arts Administration – handling a range of administrative tasks, supporting our work in productions, showcases and artist development, using all programs within the Microsoft office suite and handling enquiries via phone and email.
2. Education/Outreach – supporting BP to develop and deliver their education and outreach aims, liaising with schools and colleges, developing workshops, communicating information between schools and colleges and relevant members of the team, assisting with events, completing research, developing ties within the community, and handling enquiries via phone and email.
3. Funding – helping BP to raise crucial funds by building relationships with donors, holding fundraising galas, seeking corporate sponsorship and applying to trusts and foundations. Being a theatre company without subsidy, this work is vital to achieving our ambitious plans.
4. Press and Marketing – supporting the planning and implementation of marketing strategy for BP's productions and projects; handling a range of administrative tasks including organising photo-shoots; submitting listings; researching advertising opportunities, updating social media; liaising with a variety of external agencies and organisations and handling general enquiries via e-mail and phone.
