Interested in joining our team? We want to hear from you!
London Playwrights Workshop is seeking an intern to support our work on both our blog and members’ site. The post is ideally suited to an emerging writer who is interested in broadening their knowledge of the new writing scene and gaining hands on experience in working in a theatre non-profit.
About the job: The role will focus on supporting the day to day running of the organisation including proof reading site content, posting on social media, helping us to source opportunities, and assisting us in delivering new content for our members.
For a person with the right interests and experience, there may also be opportunities to write additional content for our site and to become involved with some of the exciting projects we’ve got coming up in the next few months.
What we are looking for: as a small team, we’re used to turning our hands to all the necessary tasks involved with a running a start-up company and we’re seeking someone who is enthusiastic about getting stuck in!
We’re looking for someone with a keen interest in playwriting and the new writing industry, although you do not need to have worked in this area before.
You must be 18 or older to apply for this role.
- Confident writing skills (including excellent spelling and grammar)
- Reliable personality
- Able to work to deadlines
- Strong attention to detail
- Proactive and able to work independently
- Able to follow a writing style guide
What you’ll get out of it:
- Training in how to blog and use WordPress software
- Your byline included on any posts you write for London Playwrights’ Blog
- Excellent knowledge of the new writing landscape in London
- Firsthand experience of working in a theatre non-profit
- The opportunity to develop your skills in a hands on way within a small company
- Free LPB membership!
Hours/Duration: 6-8 hours per week (approx). The hours are flexible and designed to work around other professional and personal commitments, as the majority of the work can be completed from home. As long as deadlines are met, you can work when you please!
The role requires a four month commitment to the blog, from mid November 2018 to mid March 2019. Whilst we don’t ask you to give up your life during this time, we do ask that you can make a commitment to the four month period.
Payment: This post is unpaid as the core running of the company is done on a voluntary basis.
How to apply: Please send us:
- Your CV
- A cover letter explaining why you’re interested in working with LPB and why you think you’re right for the role
- An equal opportunities monitoring form. (Why do we ask for this information? Click if you’re curious!)
