Cardboard Citizens is seeking a Trainee Facilitator for a six-month paid, part-time role, predominantly working on the Act Now programme (Cardboard Citizens’ youth programme for 16-25 year olds).

The vacancy – supported by our partnership with Comic Relief – is designed to give a supportive environment to someone with a keen interest in theatre-making and storytelling – to help them start their career, and develop the necessary skills to develop as a performing arts facilitator.

We’re looking for someone aged 18-26, ideally from an underrepresented background. It is essential that the vacancy is filled by a person with lived experience of homelessness – or someone at risk of homelessness, or not currently in education or training.

Deadline for application is 7 March, and interviews will take place over Zoom in the week beginning 15 March.
