    Thank you for your interest in becoming a Nomad Volunteer for our 2015 Season. We ask you to take a few minutes to read over all of the following information before filling out the application form. We are the UK's first Social Enterprise Pop-Up Cinema, donating 100% of our profits to our chosen charity, the Sustainability Institute in South Africa. Over the year we will roam from venue to venue around London. Each of our fantastic volunteers will join the Nomad (and our mascot Lewis The Camel!) on the road, helping us to run the Front of House. We’re taking a very classy programme of films to some beautiful, curious and downright strange screening locations. You will help bring the magic of cinema to audiences of up to 1500, as the sun sets on some stunning London scenery (or indoors if it's during the Winter)! Attributes we consider important to being a good volunteer are: Customer focus and a friendly manner Commitment Reliability Common sense Good initiative An interest in the charity work of The Sustainability Institute Fluent English We are happy to take applicants from all over London and beyond. We take volunteers from a variety of backgrounds, a range of ages and ethnicities, and do not discriminate. Duties will include ushering, set-dressing, box office duties, meet & greet, selling merchandise, patrolling the grounds, flyering, and generally helping create our magical atmosphere. You’ll be there to tell people a bit more about the Nomad and our story (100% of our profits go to an incredible charity) and make sure they have a fantastic time. You’ll work closely with Dave, our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Paul, our Operations Director, as well as other Duty Managers, and of course with Lewis The Camel, our mascot!
