Jobs and Volunteering

Volunteering

Theatre Royal Wakefield volunteers help to make a positive difference to the lives of many people. Their contribution is vital to our work and we are committed to offering volunteers an enjoyable and meaningful experience.

We have three main volunteer roles:
  • Front of House stewards
  • Conversation Café volunteers
  • Volunteer Chaperones


Investing in Volunteers (IiV) is the UK quality standard for excellence in volunteer management. IiV aims to improve the quality of the volunteering experience for all volunteers and for organisations to acknowledge the enormous contribution made by volunteers.


Theatre Royal Wakefield welcomes and encourages applications from everyone regardless of their age, sex, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity, disability or nationality. We are a PiPA (Parents and Carers in Performing Arts) partner. PiPA enables and empower parents, carers and employers to achieve sustainable change in attitudes and practices in order to attract, support and retain a more diverse and flexible workforce. We are always happy to discuss solutions that allow people to balance their caring responsibilities with their working lives, for example through job shares or flexible working arrangements.
