Volunteer at The Ark

If you attend an event at The Ark, one of the first people you will meet is most likely a volunteer. For every programme we run, we are indebted to our volunteers for their support. They play a central part in helping to create an engaging, inclusive and safe atmosphere for all our visitors. We are continually impressed by their generosity with their time, skills and enthusiasm. We wouldn’t be who we are without them. Volunteering at The Ark is ideal for people who are both interested in the arts and wish to gain experience in working with children in a creative environment. We are currently recruiting volunteers for our autumn/winter season. If you feel you would enjoy helping children and families during events at the Ark, and are interested in joining our panel of volunteers, we would love to hear from you.

What we offer:

  • The rewards of working with children and young people
  • The opportunity to work as part of a dedicated team in a leading cultural centre
  • A rich and varied experience of events that include all sectors of the arts
  • The flexibility to commit to the amount of time you can manage comfortably
  •  Training for the duties required in relation to our programmes
  • Specialist training in our health and safety and child protection policies.

What we're looking for from you:

  • An interest in the arts and in working in a child-centred environment
  • A willing, calm and enthusiastic disposition
  • The ability to work as part of a team
  • Excellent communication skills and fluent English.
