Sadler’s Wells Events appoints Cultural Venue Operations Apprentice

Maurice Rowan-Bishop
Sadler’s Wells’ Events team has appointed Maurice Rowan-Bishop as Cultural Venue Operations Apprentice as part of the Creative Employment Programme, which supports the creation of formal apprenticeship opportunities for the young and unemployed.

Having studied for a Level 2 Certificate in Supporting Cultural Venue Operations at Lewisham and Southwark College, Maurice supports the events team at Sadler’s Wells with event management and operation support.  

Event Manager Georgie Mackie says: “It’s great that we’re able to offer such a comprehensive training scheme here at Sadler’s Wells. I think it’s important to offer on the job training of this kind, particularly with such hands-on skills as are required in the events industry. It’s great to see that this is now on the agenda, following the launch of the first official events industry apprenticeship scheme last month. We’re delighted to welcome Maurice on board, he has a true passion for the arts and has already proven to be a great asset to the Events team.”  

Commenting on the appointment, Maurice says: “I was delighted to be appointed as an apprentice at Sadler’s Wells. I’m really excited to be working with the team to support the day-to-day running of the business. I was impressed by how seamlessly the different departments work together to ensure that an event is carried out without a hitch. It’s great that all the different departments work as one big team to ensure the smooth running of all operations at the theatre, allowing us to deliver the most inspiring events in such a creative setting. The work we do in the Events department goes hand in hand with the art on stage.”  

The scheme is designed to support those wishing to pursue a career in the arts and cultural sector, and the venue have committed to offering further apprenticeships for young people this year.
