As well as on the job training, the programme will culminate in a CV workshop exploring the skills you’ve developed and how to apply them to your next steps and a networking session with industry professionals and prospective employers. 

Each placement offers a different set of duties that will vary depending on the organisation but here are some examples of areas you may work in 

  • Box Office: Welcome customers, prepare tickets for collection and see how tickets are booked 
  • Ushering: Ensure that all customers are looked after during their visit to the show or event

  • Events: Get stuck in with an events team setting up, running and taking down for an event 
  • Marketing: See how effective communication through social media and marketing can impact a business 
  • Social Action: Learn how a community-centred approach informs day to day business operations 


  • This programme is designed for London residents aged 16 – 25 looking to explore a career in the creative sector 
  • You must not be in education, employment or training at the start of the programme on 11 October 2021 
  • All roles require interacting with customers and positively representing the organisation,  so we are looking for friendly people who are keen to learn something new
