Front Line Lambeth applications are OPEN for young people

Not sure of your next step? 

If you’re aged 16-25, living in London and not in education, training or employment, we’re offering you the opportunity to discover more about working in the creative industry, develop key transferable skills and get paid for it.    

Front Line Lambeth offers paid placements at cultural organisations across Lambeth, including Pop Brixton, Southbank Centre, Streatham Space Project and The Old Vic.  

As well as on the job training, the programme will culminate in a CV workshop exploring the skills you’ve developed and how to apply them to your next steps and a networking session with industry professionals and prospective employers.  

Applications close on Monday 13 September at midday. If you have any questions please email sade@southwarkworks.org.uk or call 07570 674193

Each placement offers a different set of duties that will vary depending on the organisation but here are some examples of areas you may work in

  • Box Office: Welcome customers, prepare tickets for collection and see how tickets are booked
  • Ushering: Ensure that all customers are looked after during their visit to the show or event
  • Duty Management: Shadow a Duty Manager and learn what goes into running the Front of House during a show or event
  • Café / Bar: Learn from a team of baristas and serving staff on the smooth running of a café bar space
  • Events: Get stuck in with an events team setting up, running and taking down for an event
  • Marketing: See how effective communication through social media and marketing can impact a business
  • Social Action: Learn how a community-centred approach informs day to day business operations
