“Fuel were open and honest about their work and learning on-the-job meant I got the fullest experience possible. My input was welcomed and encouraged and I felt my contributions were really valued. During the internship I gained an incredible insight into how Fuel work and received invaluable mentoring and support from the team. The experience has played a big role in helping me carve out my future career in theatre.”

Philippa Wilkinson, Producing Intern

Operations Internship

You will work closely with Fuel's Executive Director to learn about administration and implementing an archiving strategy in a theatre producing office. This position is ideal for people interested in arts administration. This is a part-time, fixed term voluntary position working two days a week. Please download the operations intern person specification below.

"My placement with Fuel gave a complete overview of how a professional theatre company runs. Whether updating the database with audience feedback or assisting with season print, there is always something engaging. With the assistance of the Executive Director I also held my own project and responsibilities resulting in a useful feedback session for Fuel's Access Programme. Working on Fuel's archive was an excellent role to implement organisational and time management skills, despite spending much time reading Fuel's vast collection of rave reviews! As an operations intern, you get the sense you're feeding into the bigger picture of the company, no matter how small the task."

Carol Ellis, Operations Intern
