Becoming a volunteer at the Castleford Phoenix Theatre is a great way to give back to the community and also take part in the arts.
We are looking for passionate individuals to join our events team in helping us to present the best events and shows that we can. We have volunteer positions, both back stage and front of house so whether you are interested in helping with the thousands of audience members we have per year or with the technical side of events then we have something for you. We want to provide a first class service to all of our users and patrons and you could have an important part to play.
Volunteering is a meaningful commitment and you will join a team who are valued for the time and energy they give to us. The three areas where we have volunteer positions are;
While volunteers have different roles there are some general instructions that cover them all.
Follow the instructions of the venue manager and the person in charge of you.
Have a basic understanding about the event and about the theatres future programme
Be alert for any disturbance or emergency
Be aware of emergency and evacuation procedures
Assist cleaning up after a show or event
Help us to provide an excellent customer service
Volunteers in most cases must be over the age of 18. As you are here to help us with events if there is a particular show or performance you want to watch then you should not volunteer for it and buy a ticket instead.
We are looking for people who are passionate about the arts and want to get involved. Who are committed to making the venue a success, are reliable and responsible.
The phoenix has a busy programme of events and we will work with you according to what you can offer. If you are accepted as a volunteer then you will be given training here at the Phoenix in your chosen area. While volunteers receive no payment we do offer £1 credit to your theatre account for every hour worked which you can use to pay for tickets to see shows here at the Phoenix. It also means your friends and family can benefit from your volunteering.
There are other times of the year where voluntary help is greatly appreciated. These include getting our brochures distributed and our summer maintenance programme.
To apply to be a volunteer all you need to do is fill in the short application form and return it to the theatre by email or post.
