These role descriptions – referred to in the overview of volunteering at the arts centre – are intended to give you an idea of what each volunteer role entails, but the duties may vary from time to time, depending on the specific requirements of an event.
Volunteer roles described:
There are a number of areas that volunteers can support our team in the office:
For office based support, generally volunteering takes place Monday – Friday, morning or afternoon. Due to limited desk and computer space our office can normally only accommodate one volunteer at a time, so generally volunteers work for either an afternoon or a morning.
If you have a background in publishing or marketing & PR then we are looking for volunteers to help in the following ways:
This is our quarterly newsletter which goes to our members and other supporters. The editor agrees the content with the Centre Manager and Chair of Trustees and is responsible for compiling the stories & pictures and setting them into Publisher (training will be given if required) ready for printing.
If you are proficient at uploading content for Facebook, Twitter, Insta, TickTok & YouTube then we need you!
You will follow a protocol and house style for posting news and updates in collaboration with other members of our team based around our schedule of events.
Designing & setting basic posters/flyers; organising distribution including physically trying to get them up in shops, libraries, anywhere!
As a busy centre, we want to create a new team to support our staff with setting up and taking down equipment for concerts, exhibitions and other events.
Our huge main space is extremely flexible and can be set up in a number of different ways, but that also means we frequently need to re-set equipment which takes time.
For example, it can take three hours to correctly set up 329 numbered chairs in the right place or four days to set up all the stands for an art fair. With more help we can reduce changeover times.
Stewarding at events is an important role as it helps us ensure all our visitors have a good experience, gain valuable feedback and ensure we fulfill our legal obligations under the terms of our premises license
For example, at every concert we are required to have stewards positioned at each Fire Exit throughout the performance.
The café and bar are important income generators for the Landmark and an efficient friendly service is delivered by our team at exhibitions, concerts and other events. The café is normally open for fairs and the bar during evening concerts and events.
The Bar at concerts is normally entirely run by volunteers under the direction of the House Manager. You will need to be aged 18 or over and attend a short training session on licensing laws to volunteer for the bar.
The Café at our fairs is run under concession by Enjoy Catering, who provide their own staff but are also grateful for volunteer help particularly around the busy lunchtime period. Volunteers also help by delivering lunches to exhibitors at fairs.
Most of the grounds around the Landmark are the responsibility of the housing association, with whom we share the site. However, we are responsible for a large area known as ‘The Woodland Garden’ which fronts the Kingston and Ferry roads and also for the shrub & flower beds immediately against the building.
All tools are provided.
