Volunteer And Job Opportunities

Get involved with Fuse!

Lichfield Fuse Festival has been a huge success for Lichfield Arts but we now need new people to join the organising team to help keep it going and become even bigger and better.

The festival brings thousands of people together over a whole weekend each July to enjoy a diverse range of music, creative/performing arts and much more in Beacon Park, Lichfield in a family-friendly, community-spirited atmosphere.

As Lichfield Fuse Festival continues to grow, we are looking for new people to join our management and co-ordinating teams. We are particularly in need of help with project management, booking infrastructure and performers, fundraising and dealing with compliance issues. It’s hard but extremely rewarding work from November to July in a very friendly, supportive team.

If you love Fuse and think you have skills which could help it run (or know someone who has) please get in touch with us now (before 31st October). Don’t forget it’s YOUR free festival so please get involved!

 

 

Volunteer Opportunities

Lichfield Arts is proud of its team of volunteers who give up their time to make all the events that Lichfield Arts promotes throughout the year happen and run as smoothly as possible. As well as ensuring our concerts, community festivals and events work well, our hard working volunteers help to support the Lichfield Arts office and the board of Trustees, who themselves are volunteers.

Without our loyal, dedicated volunteers Lichfield Arts could not exist and we are grateful for the continued support and efforts of our fantastic team of volunteers.

We always welcome new volunteers to Lichfield Arts and volunteering can be very rewarding as it offers the chance to meet new people and enjoy being part of our events. Many of our volunteers have been with us for several years.

Just a few of duties that volunteers do are:

  • Stewarding and welcoming people to events
  • Bar Staff and glass collecting
  • Stage set up and dismantling
  • Front of house at concerts and events
  • Master of ceremonies at concerts and events
  • Selling raffle tickets
  • Reviewing and photographing our events
  • … And much much more

So if you would like to join our friendly team of volunteers then please get in touch by calling the office on 01543 262223 or email volunteer@lichfieldarts.org.uk.

The role holder would have good team skills, be able to communicate with other role holders and have a commitment to the ‘spirit’ and aims of L2F.

Marketing

The role holder will have good team skills, PR skills and, ideally, IT literate.

Sponsorship and Funding

To maximise the sponsorship and funding income. This would involve pursuing links with potential sponsors and applications for grant funding.

The role holder will have good team and PR skills and be able to work in cooperation with LA staff.
