Deadline: Fri 7 Mar 2014
Come and work at the Arches.
The sweat that often comes out of the bricks is evidence of the people’s hard work to put the event on and of how much the public enjoyed the show.
Yes, we’re famous for sticking 2 fingers up in the air and for our eclectic programme of events. The people behind the scenes who make this possible are as eclectic and talented as the shows we put on.
Yes, we’ve achieved several times IIP status but we wouldn’t be the Arches if we were satisfied with doing just that.
We also help develop local talent through our employment strategy. We have internships, apprenticeships and professional skills recognition schemes in place as well as in house training and development programmes to help us do just that. We push the boundaries in personal and professional development to maximise our performances and to achieve a great level of customer service.
Many people who apply for our job vacancies are regular visitors who are passionate about the place and about what we do. Most only know one of our multiple faces though. It’s a start for working here but far from being sufficient. Showing a personality as flexible to learning as our spaces are to presenting challenging events is essential.
Working for a charity such as ours requires having a common purpose, a great drive, enthusiasm for what we do, people who can communicate their passion to others, be thought provoking, challenge the status quo and look at continuous improvement. Many have started in junior positions here and through their continuous development have achieved great careers with us and within the Arts. We are looking for people with a mind open to learning as well as possessing a professional attitude, people with a thirst for bringing the best out of others, people who are flexible in their ways of working, people that will help us progress further. Only those will be short listed for interviews.

“I’ve heard it so many times before: “Yes, but we’re different here, these practices don’t apply here”… For once it’s the truth at the Arches; we’re different, we do things differently and still provide great professional service with respect for each individual”.
