Welcome to our Get into Music Opportunities Page. Keep an eye here for details about ways that you can get involved with the programme, from work experience opportunities, to events, talks and networking events.
Get into Music: Connect
Deadline: 12pm Thursday 8th September 2016
Applications are now open for ‘Connect’ our work shadowing programme as part of Get into Music.
We have altered the way we run our work shadowing opportunities, due to the large number of applications we receive. The new process is more structured and will offer a valuable experience for individuals involved.
We are offering 10 young people, aged 16-24 who are serious about developing careers in the offstage side of the music industry, the opportunity to work alongside our technical team on events in the building.
This is an opportunity for you to gain valuable experience in a working venue, understand how it runs operationally and how to approach working in the environment.
Applicants will have the opportunity to work on 3 shows at the Guildhall, between September and May. Please be aware, that the opportunities will be drawn at random, to ensure objectivity.
Alongside work shadowing on concerts, shows and events, you will have the chance to participate in training and networking opportunities, as well as having direct contact with the industry.
Ideally, you will be in a position, perhaps through college, university or another job, to be able to work during the day and evening of a specific show. Given the nature of the venue, you could be required to work until 11pm. You will receive suitable breaks to compensate.
If you are interested in our Get into Music work experience programme, please complete the application form here and return to Hayley Reay, either via email:firstname.lastname@example.org or post to: Hayley Reay, Portsmouth Cultural Trust, Portsmouth Guildhall, Portsmouth, PO1 2AB.
If you have any questions, please email Hayley or call on 02393 870 193.
Applications must be received by 12pm, Thursday 8th September 2016. You will be notified within 1 week, whether you have been successful, or are invited to a telephone interview.
Please remember- we are inundated by work experience requests, so please complete this application form in as much detail as possible.
