Love Theatre and Film? Looking to develop a career in the industry? Fancy doing something rewarding with your spare time?
NEW – 100% Project
Introducing Our Brand New Volunteering / Work Experience Programme
Worthing Theatres is offering an opportunity for anyone over the age of 18 who has an interest for live theatre and cinema. You will gain experience across different departments to give you an overall view of how a Theatre runs.
We currently have a full quota of trained Volunteers and aren’t currently recruiting for any more.
Please check back from time to time to see when we are recruiting again. It is likely to occur around October/November in time for our pantomime Cinderella! Anyone who has previously emailed/enquired will have been added to our waiting list and will be contacted at this time also. Thank you.
What would I do?
We’re looking for enthusiastic and friendly people to join our ever growing group of volunteers you will be part of our customer experience team and perform a vital Role in making sure all our customers have a great time when they visit. You don’t need experience – just be keen to learn!
There are many reasons that our volunteers give us their time, some people volunteer to try something new or to gain new skills, others enjoy having the chance to meet new people, to be part of a supportive team, or to further their interest in theatre and film. Full training is provided and you’ll also work alongside our lovely front of house team. Not only do we have a wide and diverse programme of shows and films, it’s also a great opportunity to meet and socialise with like-minded people and watch brilliant shows whilst doing it!
Not only that, but you’ll get perks for giving up your time too…
Interested? Drop us an email! volunteerwt@adur-worthing.
We look forward to hearing from you,
Rachel Ward and the rest of the FOH team.

2. Lets Meet
Since the role of Volunteer involves you representing the organisation and meeting members of the public from all different walks of life, we like to meet all of our potential volunteers individually. The meeting is informal and is also chance for you to ask us questions too!. We do everything we can to help you be your best. Top Tip: Be yourself!
3. Trial shift
We want all our volunteers to feel comfortable so the next step would be for you to come and work a shift with our team and see if you like the place! That way you will be able to see what happens on shift and ask us any questions that you may of thought of after our meeting. It’s also an opportunity to meet and speak to some of our member of staff and volunteers.
We offer all the training required, which means you can gain really useful skills whilst volunteering with us. This may help you with other opportunities you are pursuing- and don’t worry, you will be buddied up with one of our more experienced and fabulous volunteers or front of house staff for your first shifts! Top Tip: Don’t be worried if you don’t have experience- learning is all part of the fun.
We don’t mind how much time you have to offer, be it a few hours a week or even just a few shifts a month. Just bare in mind the more hours of your time you give up the better perks you get!
