VOLUNTEERS NEEDED NOW - Help to run events at The Globe

(Press release)
Why we need volunteers

The Globe is a music venue owned and run by a community cooperative. The Globe has developed an ambitious programme of music of many genres including jazz, folk, rock, blues and classical. It also hosts dance, comedy and other spoken word events, and runs a comprehensive learning programme with opportunities for players and singers of all abilities.

 

 

We employ some staff but we could not do all the things we do without a dedicated team of volunteers offering some of their time and expertise for free. They help to run the business and keep our customers and staff safe and enjoying what we do.

 

 

How Volunteers Can Help The Globe

 

Volunteers at The Globe contribute in a variety of ways, according to their skills and what their circumstances allow. This includes the following highly-visible roles with lots of customer and artist interaction (all with appropriate training provided):

  • Helping run the bar, serving drinks and taking payments
  • Welcoming guests at the door and helping set the room up for events
  • Operating the audio, video and lighting systems for live acts

Alternatively, there are several 'back-room' roles where experience is welcome, including:

  • Maintaining audio/visual equipment to a high standard
  • Painting, decorating and general property maintenance
  • Helping promote our events and learning programmes

We are also keen to hear from individuals who might be prepared to invest in the business as a member of the cooperative and could also help us run the business by becoming a Board member, providing expertise in areas such as:

  • Financial management
  • Human resources
  • Property and equipment
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Events management
  • Learning and participation

 

The Benefits of Becoming a Globe Volunteer

 

There are some practical advantages to being a Globe volunteer. You can gain new skills through our high quality training in areas such as:

  • Running a bar and customer service
  • Operating sound, lighting and video systems for live and recorded gigs

As either a bar or front-of-house helper you get to see a wide variety of live acts for free. And as someone involved in our 'back room' support functions you get the satisfaction of witnessing the business moving forwards based on your own efforts and those of the wider Globe team.

 

You know what? You’ll make some new friends too!
