Shetland Arts has a tradition of volunteering: many of our staff came to be working in the arts as volunteers in some way or another, and our board of trustees, which provides strategic overview and governance of the work we do, is made up of volunteers.
Along with being part of exciting cultural events across Shetland, our volunteers can use the experience to develop their professional and interpersonal skills while meeting lots of new people. If you're aged between 16-25 you can also log your volunteering hours as part of the Saltire Award scheme.
We're really excited to be offering three new volunteering roles across our organisation to enhance and support the delivery of our creative output across Shetland.
An Arts Liaison Volunteer provides the first point of contact for visiting artists to Shetland, greeting them at transport terminals and transporting them to their destination and helping out when required backstage. Access to a vehicle and a valid UK driver's licence is necessary for this role.
Using your own car, you will be supporting the project by uplifting our food packs and supplies from our Storage Unit and deliver them to our Community Access Points. Deliveries should take no more than a couple of hours and all driving will be in the city centre area.
