‘It has given me confidence and allowed me to explore positions I may want to pursue later. It has given me a sense of purpose and community and allowed me to attend some great events and meet great people’

‘So far it has only been a joy! After 39 years of pressurised full-time work, it is like bathing in milk and honey. Interesting, diverting and sooooo enjoyable’

Brighton Dome are excited to be opening the opportunity for Volunteers to support our year round Front of House Team. We are seeking friendly and enthusiastic people to take on Volunteer positions at our range of creative, music and comedy events. You will become an integral and valuable member of the Brighton Dome community, and will receive opportunities to train, gain experience and receive digital badges.

Join us for a recruitment evening where you will participate in some practical group activities for approximately 1 hour and staff will be on hand to assist you with filling in an application if you haven't already done so. The recruitment day is a drop in opportunity and you will only need to stay for approximately 1 hour. You will need to be available for the whole of the training evening.
