Creative Workshop Leaders & Assistants

We are always on the lookout for talented people to join our team looking for a range of individuals who can deliver exciting and stimulating workshops in the arts. We run ongoing programmes and look to bring together a dynamic series of supplementary workshops, including family friendly and teen workshops alongside creative workshops for adults.


Volunteering & Internships

Volunteers are an integral part of the work we do at They Eat Culture and we appreciate and value the help that volunteers give us. Because volunteers want to help us, we want the volunteering process to help them in their career or personal objectives, and to reflect their interests.
We can offer volunteer roles across our work, but primarily in specific projects (such as the Writing or Family project strands), events coordination, programming, technical events work, and marketing/press. Within these broad areas we can arrange a whole range of volunteering experience from entry level to project management level. We aim to help develop our volunteers’ experience with their work and personal goals in mind and so we will ensure that the volunteering process is managed from entry to exit. The volunteering you will undertake with us is determined by how much time you can commit to, the type of volunteering you want to do, and the skills we need.
Volunteers can undertake work on an ongoing basis or on a project or time specific basis. Volunteers may come to us because they are interested in the organisation and would like to work alongside us to develop their skills. TEC may go on recruitment drives to find volunteers who are interested in specific skill sets or areas of work.


Photographers and Videographers

Are you an aspiring up and coming photographer or videographer? Are you interested in building up a portfolio in Arts, live events, documentary or social sector?

We would like to invite photographers; recent graduates and those in the early stages of their creative career to work alongside our team at TEC to document events in a stimulating environment that covers a wide range of edgy and inspiring projects.
