Creative Internships Blog Week 37

Nathan McCarthy, Sherman Theatre  

This month the Sherman 5 project manager and I will be meeting with the new Store Manager of the Crwys Road Co-op. She contacted me via email and says that she and her team are looking forward to working alongside us with our community fundraising campaign in support of Deaf Theatre Club through the Co-Op Community Fund. We’ll be meeting to discuss how we can raise the profile of the Campaign and to provide staff and customers with information regarding the sort of work Sherman 5 does including Deaf Theatre Club.

As the internship comes towards an end I’ve been learning as much as I can about other arts organisations in Cardiff and the sort of work they do. I have spent a deal of my time becoming aware of what jobs are out there for a person with the skills I have developed over the previous year at Sherman Theatre.

Filling out job applications following a competency frame work is a relatively new process to me. However this month I have attended a recruitment training session at the Arts & Business Cymru Offices which I found very helpful. I’ve also continued one to one sessions with Sherman Theatre's Chief Executive Julia Barry. Her experience and insight to the recruitment process has provided me with more confidence whilst addressing competencies in job applications.
