Islington Arts Factory has some opportunities for volunteering to come and help our team. We cover travel expenses up to £5/shift and provide refreshments from our café. Please get in touch on 020 7607 0561 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Reception Reception volunteers man our front desk during busy periods, taking membership and class fees from centre users, and maintaining accurate registers and membership forms etc. They would also need to be able to direct, members of the public in the building, bands to their rehearsal rooms, gallery visitors to current exhibitions etc. Quieter times between classes would be spent in the main office answering the telephone and doing basic administrative tasks which could include photocopying, internet research etc. All reception volunteers need to be numerate as they will be handling money and ideally outgoing and good with people as they will be the first face of the Factory. Shifts would be on week day afternoons and evenings for a minimum of 2hrs between 4pm – 10pm.
Maintenance Maintenance volunteers would help with decorating and cleaning tasks around our beloved building, helping admin staff with caring for our spaces on a day to day basis. Task would include tidying our outdoor spaces, preparing our gallery for exhibitions and helping our director of art maintain order in our creative yet chaotic art room! No specific skill needed but someone practical with basic DIY skills would be ideal for this position
If you think that you have enthusiasm and skills to help us please do get in touch. We are always excited to hear from people who are good at marketing, IT, finance, fundraising, gardening and many more things! We are a small team here and volunteers really do make all the difference to us.
