Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is searching for motivated and passionate young people aged 18-25 to take part in our Young Changemakers programme. This programme is designed to make sure that young people’s views inform the way the organisation is run – from advising on communications, fundraising and strategy, to acting as ambassadors at events.

As a Young Changemaker, you would play a vital role in ensuring the Theatre’s commitment to engaging young people, and creating future generations of young theatre-goers. You will be a representative for young people, and acting as an advocate for the Theatre in your own community.

We feel that Young Changemakers would be an ideal way to be exposed to and part of key conversations, instilling the confidence to take on leadership roles in both your personal and professional life. This is also a brilliant way to develop your knowledge in areas such as finance, marketing and programming.

Person specification

The group will meet six times formally throughout the year, with each meeting taking on a different project, crucial to the Theatre’s decision making process.

You should be able to commit to six two hour evening sessions a year, taking place at the theatre, as well as other events and projects throughout the year.

You will be independent and energetic, with an interest in theatre or a wish to become more involved in it. You should work well in a team, and be willing to participate in regular meetings and events in your free time.

You do not need to have previous experience, just the passion and commitment to make young people’s voice heard.

To apply, simply send a 200 word personal statement explaining why you would be a good fit for the Young Changemakers programme to mirandaw@queens-theatre.co.uk

Deadline 11th December
