Volunteering Opportunities

‘Volunteering at Exeter Phoenix is a wonderful opportunity to mix with like minded creative people and support the creative and diverse range of work provided by artists from all over the UK.’

None of the day to day activity at Exeter Phoenix could be accomplished without our passionate team of volunteers and staff to make it happen. We’re always looking for new people to get involved.

Why Volunteer With Us?

  • If you are interested in a career in the arts, volunteering provides experience of a professional arts setting. Many of our volunteers have gone on to work in the arts, and some of our very own staff started out as volunteer stewards with us!
  • Exeter Phoenix is a registered charity. By giving your time, you’ll be helping us fulfil our mission of bringing exciting live events, contemporary art and film to your city, while supporting local creatives.
  • Volunteering is a great way to gain wide and varied experiences in a professional venue with one of the most exciting, diverse and eclectic programmes around.
  • Volunteer stewards receive a 20% discount on hot drinks and food (even when you are not on shift!), special invitations to gallery openings and other special events and complimentary tickets to selected events across our programme.
  • It's sociable! Be part of a small and dedicated team, working at events that you’re passionate about and meeting a whole range of interesting people. You can also sign up with a friend and steward events together.

We’re looking for regular volunteers, able to offer their time at least once a month, for the following activities:

Cinema Stewarding

  • Working with like-minded film enthusiasts in a customer focussed environment
  • Taking tickets and liaising with cinema staff and projectionist
