Cabaret Co-ordinator 2022/23

Applications are now open for this paid role, organising live performance nights for our London campus.

Are you a London student with a passion for live music and performance? Would you like to gain experience in event management and marketing? Then you could be our new Cabaret Co-ordinator.

During 2021/22 we held two Student Live Lounge events at Grow Hackney, which presented a mix of music, spoken word and performance. Due to their success, we are now recruiting for a London student to organise these events for 2022/23. We want these live performance nights to showcase the most talented London students and to be a platform for all kinds of live acts, representing the diversity of talent that exists amongst our student community.

We'll pay you to deliver two events during the academic year 2022/23 at Grow Hackney: one in the autumn term and one in the spring term. You will be expected to publicise the events and book student performers. You will liaise with Grow Hackney to organise technical support and to ensure the events are a success. But don't worry, we'll support and guide you throughout.

Who can apply?

This role is open to all current students (including Doctoral Researchers) from the Loughborough University London campus, or Loughborough University students who spend part of their studies on the London campus. You must still be a current student by the time of both events. Previous Student Live Lounge Co-ordinators are not eligible to apply.

You can apply as an individual or to share this role with one other student.

The ideal candidate is someone who would like to gain skills and experience in event management and marketing and who also has a passion for music and live performance. You don’t need any prior experience so don’t worry if you have never done anything like this before. What you do need to demonstrate is lots of enthusiasm for the role and ideas for how you would take it forward and ensure that the events are a success. LU Arts will provide you with all the support you need, whether that be marketing the events to students or ensuring everything is in place technically.

LU Arts is committed to inclusivity and representing the student community we serve. We welcome applications from students of all backgrounds.

How much will I be paid?

£400 for organising both events (split equally if the role is shared between two students).
