Role descriptions

Please complete our application form online.

Alternatively, print out our application form (90KB), fill it in and either post it to the following address, or scan it and return it to us by email.

Alison Lister
Interpretation Officer
Keats House
Keats Grove

Please return the application form by Monday 30 January when applications close.

If successful, you can expect to hear from us in one to two weeks after this date. We will ask you to come to an informal interview at the house, where we can talk about your potential role.

Informal interviews will take place on Saturday 18 February and Friday 24 February. Interviews for Poetry Ambassadors will take place on Sunday 26 February. If it is impossible for you to attend on these days, please still apply and we will try to find an alternative date.

Following the informal interview, if you are selected to become a volunteer you will be asked to provide two references before the role begins. Once recruited, volunteers are compensated for travel expenses. 

We're sorry, but we won't be able to reply to everyone who applies, only to those we would like to meet for an informal interview.

Note: As we are a small team, we recruit volunteers twice a year and we are unable to accept unsolicited applications outside of these recruitment cycles. The next recruitment round will take place in September 2017.
