Thank you to everybody who has made the effort to apply to join our pool of freelancers for work with young people. If you have been shortlisted we will notify you by e-mail by Friday 13th December.
We were lucky enough to be inundated with many excellent applications and as a small organisation we only have capacity to reply to the people we are inviting to interview. If you haven’t been shortlisted this time we hope that won’t put you off from applying to us in the future.
Due to the success of our Young Theatre Makers programme we are seeking to grow our pool of drama practitioners and theatre makers who are excellent at working with the often vulnerable young people (aged 11-24) that we engage with. This will include work in schools, in alternative education provision, with other local youth agencies and in the Youth offending sector.
We are seeking practitioners who are able to:
– Create a safe space for small groups of often vulnerable young people
– Motivate and engage those young people
– Be sensitive to young people experiences
– Challenge when necessary
– Be passionate about young people’s voices being heard
It’s a big ask because we need candidates who also have the creativity to select, curate and rehearse young people’s material for performance. Is this you? All contracts are freelance and can range from weekly groups at the Youth Offending Service to week long projects at London Bubble.
Note: As this work is with children, all offers of freelance work will be subject to references and DBS enhanced disclosure checks and a London Bubble safeguarding induction. If you have a disability and require any reasonable adjustment to apply please let us know.
Shortlisted candidates will be contacted by December 13th 2019 and invited to attend a group workshop and interview on December 17th 2019. Exact times TBC. We will prioritise people who are available on that day.
