Join the Producer Team


Want to be part of the team who put together our brilliant programme, bringing your enthusiasm and expertise to make Greenbelt 2012 a huge success? We have some opportunities for you in this exciting and fulfilling team.

Greenbelt has a staff team of ten who lead some 1,700 volunteers in making the festival happen each year. As part of this large volunteer base, we have a Producer Team who create the programme, alongside the Programme Manager and Programme Administrator. This makes us distinctive in the world of arts festivals.

As a Producer, you will be expected to approach contributors (performers and speakers) about coming to the festival, make bookings, and ensure that they have no problems getting onto site and onto the stage. Onsite you’ll be volunteering alongside a variety of teams including Operations and Commercial, as well as our site production company.

We are looking to find Producers for the following roles:

- Children and Family Programme
- Performing Arts Programme
- Music across the site (DJs, music workshops etc)
- Site specific programme (including street theatre)
- Workshops programme
- Talks workshop programme

The producer role would suit you if you have an understanding of the Greenbelt ethos, and are keen to explore a mix of arts, faith and justice - click here to read more about our ethos and values…

We would like you to have knowledge of performers and trends in the area you’ll be producing, you’ll be confident to make contact with key people, have a good eye for detail and be able to communicate with others to deliver the programme.

We’ll provide an introduction to Greenbelt’s database and administrative systems, ongoing support from the Greenbelt team and agreed out-of-pocket expenses. You’ll be part of a creative and diverse team of volunteers and be an integral of making a festival happen.

In order to fulfill this role, you will need to commit up to six Saturdays in January – June for Producer Team meetings, and additional time to produce your own area of the programme.

You’ll be a key part of delivering the programme at the festival and will need to be on site at Cheltenham Racecourse from at least the evening of Thursday 23rd until Tuesday 28th August 2012. Producers will be expected to attend a Producer Team meeting on Saturday 14th January 2012 in Central London, more details will be provided.
