Fundraising

There’s no upper age limit when you volunteer – Treehouse Sessions, indeed we welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and ages. If you’re determined, love film, music, and TV to death, and pride yourself on your attention-to-detail, that’s good enough for us.

In terms of lower age limit all applicants must be 16 or over but, again, if you’re cine-literate enough and don’t make basic administration mistakes, we want to hear from you. If you love film and television and music, and want to forge a career in either these industries or digital marketing, but lack experience, working for us will increase your knowledge, skills and capabilities.

Where does the volunteering take place?
No showday is the same, and although we have shcedules in place, our work is varied. We have many areas that our volunteers work in, and some of these positions will come up often:

  • Digital Marketing/Website maintainance
  • Social media
  • Research and administration
  • Creative writing
  • Camera operator
  • Sound
  • Stage management

You may be researching artists, putting together a list of  social media posts for automated release, writing up reviews on previous artists. You may be video editing previous shows, artist liason or helping with scripting. You might be setting up show cues, rigging lights and cameras or setting up the gallery. You might help out as we prep to interview our live artists, or work on our website. The beauty is in the variety. What you won’t be doing is making teas, and running lunch orders. All our past volunteers have taken a huge amount from working with us, and left all the better for the experience.

 

Apply by filling in the form below

  • 0 of 200 max characters
    In no more than 200 words.
  • If you’ve written articles online, please include links to them.
  • Let us know whether you want to work p/t or f/t.
  • Give us the window in which you would like to work.
  • Let us know where you’re based so we can consider you for on-site work

      

    Volunteers are a valued part of our company, and we hope that you enjoy volunteering with us and feel a full part of our team.

Further questions…

Is the volunteering paid in any way, or are expenses covered? Is there a job for me at the end of it?

For clarity, no payment is made to volunteers. It is hugely unlikely that we would create a permanent job for you at the end of volunteering with us.

Can I list “Volunteer for Treehouse” on my CV afterwards?

You can indeed. We are selective about who we choose to let volunteer with us, and where appropriate we may possibly become one of your CV referees – which is a crucial part of advancing in film and TV – although this is in no way promised or guaranteed.

Can I volunteer part-time for Treehouse, around my existing commitments/education?

Absolutely. You might need to be available for a longer period of time overall (it takes a while to train volunteers up in certain areas and as a result it’s not efficient for us to have people volunteer for short periods of time), but if selected you can certainly fit in volunteering for us around other commitments.

Would I need to sign anything to volunteer for Treehouse?

If selected you would have access to, and be handling, sensitive data and as a result you would need to sign a legally-binding confidentiality agreement before beginning to volunteer with us.

Please note due to demand we are unable to respond to unsuccessful applications.
