Voluntary Work Placements provide experience and an insight into a career in the Arts.  The nature of work offered through these placements varies between departments.

We are not offering any Voluntary Work Placements at the moment. Please check back later. However we are offering a Visitor Experience Apprenticeship with our Visitor Expeience Department and the details are below:-      

Shakespeare's Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to the exploration of Shakespeare's work and the playhouses for which he wrote, through the connected means of performance and education. Together, the Globe Theatre , Globe Exhibition and Tour and Globe Education seek to further the experience and intyernational understanding of Shakespeare in performance. We welcome over one million visitors per year and the Visitor Experience team works to maximise our welcome and provide a high qulasity experience for each and every visitor.

Thanks to a grant from Southwark Council, we will be offering a young person the opportunity to undertake a 12-month  Visitor Experience Appenticeship from June 2015. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to train in the workings of our Visitor Experience Department.

The successful person will report to the Head of Visitor Experience and have the opportunity to observe, learn from, support and gain insight into each of the areas of Visitor Experience: Front of House, Security, Stewarding and the Reception Teams at Welcome Desk and Stage Door.
