Job Description

Freelance Workshop Assistant

At Sparks we're passionate about potential. Through innovative workshops, courses and events, we help children and teenagers to develop creativity, gain in confidence, and to fall in love with film.

We are looking to meet new workshop assistants to help deliver our range of Saturday sessions, after school clubs and holiday projects.

Workshop assistants play a vital supportive role and the role is suitable for someone looking for more experience in education or filmmaking. Workshop assistants support our workshop leaders, and help our participants during their filmmaking activities.

We are particularly interested to meet people who are looking to take on freelance roles that take place on weekends.

Duties include:

  • Child behaviour support
  • Working with individuals and small groups of children on creative filmmaking tasks
  • Filmmaking equipment set up
  • Supervision of children
  • Workshop delivery support tasks as required

The ideal candidate will have experience of working with children, a passion for film, confidence, intuition, good communication skills, team working skills and an aptitude for technical operation.

The role is a freelance one, and successful candidates will be invited to join our workshop pool, and then offered specific projects that are the best match for them.

As this is a self-employment role, candidates will be responsible for their own NI and tax obligations.

Successful candidates will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS disclosure, and attend at least one day of compulsory induction training.
