The Trainee Community Producer will gain hands on experience in designing and delivering engaging creative activities and exercises for different people, be trained in safeguarding and creative evaluation, and gain skills in leadership, administration and project management. They will be supported by a mentor and buddy within the company, and through training and 1-1 advice from our partners Creative Access.

  • Available mid-October to March next year
  • Able to work in-person in Sheffield

There is a simple application process involving answering three questions in a short video or voice message, but applicants must be referred to us by a Work Coach at Job Centre Plus in order to apply. No prior experience of this work is required as full training will be given; we are looking for someone who is excited by the work and eager to learn.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from people that have personal knowledge of the Sharrow and Nether Edge area of Sheffield, or of the communities that live there.

More details about the job and how to apply will be sent directly to applicants after we’ve received a referral from their Job Centre Plus Work Coach. The closing date is Wednesday 6 October 2021 at 5pm.

We’re really excited to share the news that we are creating a new permanent role within the Third Angel office team. After working with fantastic marketing freelancers for many years, we’ve decided that it’s time to bring these responsibilities and expertise into our core team and recruit a part-time Marketing Assistant. 

We’re looking for someone enthusiastic and full of ideas, with a great eye for detail. You will have some experience of marketing, publicity or press but this doesn’t have to have been via paid employment, You’ll find everything else you need to know about the job in the Applicant Pack, and you’ll find a download link at the bottom of this post. 

We want our staff team to be representative of the diversity of the UK population and are keen to receive applications from people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds and from those who identify as D/deaf or disabled.

If you’re considering an application, here’s a few helpful tips to get you started: 

  • First of all, read the Information Pack carefully. Is this the right role for you?
  • Remember that we get lots of applications when we’re recruiting, so anyone who cannot show that they meet EVERY ONE of the essential criteria is very unlikely to be shortlisted.  
  • Make sure you have taken time to tell us HOW you meet each one of the points of the essential criteria, (and as many of the desirable criteria you can), by giving examples. Don’t assume that this will be obvious to us from reading your employment or education history, make it absolutely clear. However, there is no need to write pages and pages – bullet points and concise sentences are much more effective, especially when we have lots of applications to look at.
  • Where we have asked for specific experience, this doesn’t just mean employment experience. You could use examples from your hobbies, voluntary work, social life, family or school / college / university to demonstrate that you understand what skills are likely to be needed and have dipped your toe in.
  • Attention to detail is important, as it is our first indication that you have got what it takes to do the job! Use a spell check, make sure you have completed ALL the required forms, and follow the instructions to the letter!
