Jobs, interns & volunteers

Diverse team

The diversity of activities at our Arts Centre is also reflected in our team. We have six main departments representing a highly extensive range of functions. Over 80 permanent employees are responsible for Vooruit’s day-to-day activities. 

Job openings

There are currently no job openings at Vooruit, but please feel free to send us a spontaneous application (to personeelsdienst@vooruit.be) at any time. 

Internships

Would you like to be an intern at Vooruit? Every season we employ a number of students on an internship basis. The 2018-19 season is no different!

 

We’re looking for motivated, culture-savvy interns to work together with us on a number of projects over the course of the coming Vooruit season (focus weeks, target group activities, participation, ticketing, distribution, CRM, etc.). A love for all that goes on at Vooruit, good writing skills, a burning passion and a good dose of initiative are plus points for any candidate.

 

To guarantee a meaningful learning experience, we only consider candidates who are able to take on an internship of at least three months. Every internship application should be accompanied by a crystal-clear project proposal or at least with the mention of a number of specific areas of interest around which the internship would be based.

 

Send your C.V. together with a motivation letter and a specific project proposal to personeelsdienst@vooruit.be.

Join us on a volunteer basis

Do you know the city’s concert venues like the back of your hand? Are you no stranger to the theatre? Are premieres, last showings, vernissages and finissages your natural habitat? Does Vooruit hold a special place in your heart? Want to get more closely involved in our activities? If you answered "YEAH!" to all the above questions and you’re not averse to social environments, you might be the volunteer we’re looking for to join our Communication Team.

 

As a volunteer your tasks will be mainly centred around our various flyers, posters and brochures. Sometimes you’ll be standing at the concert hall doors, sometimes you’ll be flyering in a gallery or art school and at other times you’ll be on your bike, hanging up posters around the city of Ghent. You’ll always be contributing to a vital mission: communicating about all the brilliant stuff going on at Vooruit.

 

You will of course be rewarded in exchange for your diligence in carrying out this important work. On offer:

  • a volunteer’s allowance
  • free access to all Vooruit activities after three months on the job
  • the warmth of our collective appreciation
  • when possible: a free ticket for the activity you’re promoting
