A Fantastic Opportunity to Produce Outdoor Events
In partnership with The Albany, Barbican, English National Ballet and Roundhouse Watermans are looking for outstanding individuals aged 19-24 who want a career in producing outdoor events. We are offering five full-time paid apprenticeships (one apprentice for each venue) to help produce London's most ambitious festival from July-September 2012.
The apprentice will spend one year at a leading arts organisation and will receive training and support as an event producer. You will also be mentored by a festival producer, learning from experts who have produced events at Glastonbury, Bestival, Brighton Festival, Latitude, Brent Diwali and many others.
You need passion, enthusiasm, the desire to work hard and ideally some experience organising events: e.g. your own gigs, club nights and community events. Ideally, you will also know your local area - we want people who can bring their own flavour to the festival.
In return you'll get a year-long paid placement, the chance to learn from the best in the industry, build a contact book to die for and play a key part in celebrations for the London 2012 Festival. At the end of the apprenticeship you'll have gained a Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Live Events and Promotions.
Watermans will represent the sub region of West London producing high quality Outdoor arts performances and installations in the following boroughs; Hammersmith & Fulham, Ealing, Brent, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Richmond and Kingston.
Pay within the region of £15, 000 - £16,000
12 months fixed term contract - 35 hours per week
Closing date for completed application forms: Monday 28 November at Midday. Applications submitted AFTER this deadline will not be considered.
First phase of the selection process will be the Assessment Day at the GLA: Tuesday 6 December.
