Current Recruitment Opportunities

British Arrows Awards 2022 Volunteer Usher

During the month of December the Walker will be presenting the wildly popular British Arrows Awards (BAA). This sell-out holiday event celebrates the UK’s best television, online, outdoor and cinema commercials made by British advertising agencies and production companies. This celebration of commercial creativity brings people back year after year.

To support this event, we are currently recruiting for volunteer ushers. Volunteers will help scan tickets, seat patrons, and perform light theater cleaning between screenings. Volunteers will have the opportunity to watch the BAA during their shift (though some select shifts don’t) and participate in the Walker’s Volunteer Rewards program.

To get started as a new volunteer, please fill out a Shiftboard application to create a new account. If you’ve volunteered at the Walker before but can’t remember your Shiftboard password, simply click “Forgot Password” on the login page here.

All Walker staff and volunteers are required to have on file proof of their COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test result to be on campus. Staff, volunteers, and patrons will be required to wear a mask on all Sunday screenings of the British Arrows Awards.

If you have any questions about volunteering for the British Arrow’s Awards, you can send an email to volunteer@walkerart.org.


How to apply

All scheduling for Walker volunteer shifts is done through a scheduling website called Shiftboard. To get started as a new volunteer, please fill out a Shiftboard application to create a new account.

Once your Shiftboard application is received you’ll receive an email that will detail the next steps for an online orientation. Your Shiftboard account will be activated once you have completed the online orientation and quiz.

For more information please send an email to the Walker’s Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@walkerart.org or call 612.253.3559.
