Volunteering

A new era has begun at the Sherman Theatre and we are looking to build an enthusiastic team of volunteer ushers to help to deliver excellent customer service at the Sherman.

Since January 2015 over 150 people have chosen to dedicate their valuable time to Sherman Theatre by joining our team of volunteers who work hard to welcome our audiences and ensure their visit is as enjoyable as possible.

Our existing team of volunteer ushers are a brilliant group of individuals who deliver excellent customer service and are all passionate about supporting the Sherman and the work we do. Volunteering is not just about helping the Sherman thrive, but also contributing to the local community.

There are many reasons that our volunteers have chosen to give up their valuable time to help us, whether it’s making new friends or trying something new, gaining valuable experiences to put on their CVs, wanting to make a contribution to the arts community or even to learn more about the theatre. We think the Sherman is a great place to volunteer, but don’t just take our word for it, our volunteers have told us why they volunteer at Sherman theatre:

‘I VOLUNTEER BECAUSE IT IS FANTASTIC TO BE PART OF THE SHERMAN COMMUNITY AND IT’S A REALLY GOOD CHANCE TO SEE SOME GREAT SHOWS.’ ZARA

‘I VOLUNTEER BECAUSE BY DOING SO I’M HELPING PEOPLE LOVE THE THEATRE AS MUCH AS I DO.’ DAN

‘I VOLUNTEER BECAUSE IT IS INTELLECTUALLY AND SOCIALLY REWARDING. IT ENERGISES ME AND SOMETIMES OPENS DOORS I NEVER KNEW I WANTED TO KNOCK AT.’ ALEX

To say thank you to our volunteers for giving their time, they become part of the Sherman Family and can benefit from the below:

• Qualify for discounted tickets and exclusive special offers
• Receive complimentary refreshments
• Receive invitations to Press Nights and other social Sherman events
• Receive comprehensive training in all duties and responsibilities
• Gain skills and invaluable experience of customer service in a thriving arts environment
• Be given an opportunity to develop and practise Welsh Language and BSL skills
• Become a valued member of the Sherman family and interact with like-minded people

Sherman Theatre is one of Wales’ most important arts organisations and one of its leading producing houses. To achieve our commitment to creating an artistic programme that is ambitious, inventive and memorable, and giving our audiences a great experience, we need to continue to grow our team of volunteer ushers.

Whatever your age or background, if you want to get involved, we’d be delighted to meet you.

Recruitment is now open!

We recruit volunteers on a seasonal basis, and are now looking for volunteers to join our team in early 2018 for our Spring Season. You can find more information about the scheme in our info pack. If you’re interested in joining our team, please download and fill in an application form and an equal opportunities form and return it to us either via post or email. Applications will close at midday 19 January, with training taking place the following week.

If you have any questions, our email address is volunteers@shermantheatre.co.uk

Thank you for taking an interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
