The Stove Network is looking for two people under 25 to join the team that will produce the Nithraid festival on/by the River Nith in Dumfries. This is a brilliant opportunity to grow your skills and experience by joining an experienced creative team and get paid into the bargain.
The two roles we are looking to fill are:
1. Trainee Event Producer – involving a blend of: marketing, creative event planning and event coordination.
2. Site Production Assistant – involving a blend of: hands-on making (joinery etc.), working on the river, assisting with coordination and running of a boat race.
Nithraid is a unique public event in the Dumfries calendar. Now in its 4th year, it is comprised of a sailing race between the Solway Coast and the centre of Dumfries (made possible by a very high tide). A ‘festival village’ on the river bank in the town centre marks the finish line. The village contains a local producers market, acoustic music and live artworks. The Nithraid is symbolised by the Salty Cow that is paraded through the town before being released into the river at the finish of the race.
The Nithraid is organised by The Stove Network – by working on this project you will be joining an experienced, multi-disciplinary team and connecting to a wide and diverse network of creative people across SouthWest Scotland and nationally.
Each of the two roles will span from late June / early July to 9th September (Nithraid takes place on 3rd September). There are no set hours for the role – applicants will need to be flexible and fit their commitment around the demands of the project (expect a steady rise in hours worked towards the week before the event – this last week will be properly full-time).
Each Trainee Creative Producer will be paid a fee of £1,500 for their time working on the project. In addition, some travel expenses are available.
