Transform is recruiting a Producing Placement to support the delivery of Transform 19. This placement is suited to a curious and committed student who wants to learn new skills and get highly involved in the creation of a major festival. Working directly with the General Manager and festival team, this Placement will be fully embedded in the festival, taking on key administrative, organisational and artist liaison tasks. This is a great opportunity to get up and close to how a major cultural event for Leeds is realised.

  • Taking on a highly engaged role in the recruitment and coordination of the volunteer group, Team Transform.

  • Being part of the realisation of the festival and assisting the set-up and co-ordination of shows and events.
  • Acting as an ambassador for the festival and attending meetings and events.

Whilst we are not expecting candidates to have experience in all of the above, some experience of festivals or events may be useful. You will need basic computer skills, curiosity and a desire to learn.


  • The Placement will start w.c 25 Feb and runs until 16 May.
  • The time commitment is generally two days per weeks, going up to four or five days (to be agreed) for w.c 22 & 28 April to support the festival.
