In partnership with The Albany, the Barbican, English National Ballet, Roundhouse and Watermans we are looking for outstanding individuals aged 19-24 who want a career in producing outdoor events. We are offering five full-time NVQ Level 2 paid apprenticeships to help produce London’s most ambitious festival from July – September 2012.
Each 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 â€“ we want people who can bring their own flavour to the festival.
In return youâ€™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.
Closing date for submissions is 28 November 2011 at 12pm.
