Student volunteering with GAOS

We are always looking to give students at all levels a leg up, something interesting to learn about or to talk about in future job interviews, experience to put on a CV or towards IB CAS hours or Duke of Edinburgh/International Award community hours. 

Where do we typically need student volunteers?

    • Host or hostess for VIP ticket holders - useful experience for people interested in marketing, hospitality or customer service
    • Programme sellers in the theatre before the show - useful experience for people interested in sales, hospitality or customer service
    • Box office support in the theatre one hour before the show, dealing with ticket queries - useful experience for people interested in sales, hospitality or customer service
    • Make-up artists - useful experience for people interested in theatre
    • Sound technicians - an interest in sound is all you need
    • Backstage callers - a task that needs accuracy and focus

When? GAOS typically produces 4 shows a year: in April/May, June, late August and November/December. Forthcoming dates are 16 June 2018, 24-28 August 2018, and 23 November to 2 December 2018. You do not need to be available for every performance, we are very flexible.

How can I sign up? If you're interested in volunteering,please contact assistantbusiness@gaos.ch for more details.

We also have two bigger IT-related projects requiring a longer commitment (approximately 6 months):

  • Future ticketing options project
  • Merging the content of two GAOS websites - MEMORIES and GAOS.ch
These are both suitable for someone looking for a part-time project for a few months; the ticketing project could even be a final-year project. If you're interested in digital marketing, marketing, engineering or logistics, write to webmaster@gaos.ch to learn more.
