Work experience at Spotlites has been eventful, on the first day I was really nervous but I felt very welcome. I have taken on loads of different jobs.
The thing I enjoyed most would have been dealing with people on the phone. I have enjoyed being part of Spotlites for the two weeks I have been there.
All the staff are friendly and I felt like I got on well with them.
Overall I have enjoyed working at Spotlites, it has been enjoyable and fun.

My name is Max and I am 15 years old. I did my work experience at Spotlites in December. I decided to do work experience at Spotlites because for my career choice I would like to be an actor. But why Spotlites? Well I believe that it is a brilliant theatre company to learn acting techniques in. I have been there [in the youth theatre] for 8 years and have learnt many acting techniques and more. I joined Spotlites [Youth Theatre] after attending one of the professional plays, which I highly
recommend. I always wanted to be on stage and be like the actors in front of me which I am now.
I picked Spotlites knowing that I would learn a lot of backstage and onstage
techniques through acting and other clubs and shows which they run.
Whilst I was there I felt at home and everyone was really nice to me. I was asked if I was ok 24/7. When I arrived I got given a short induction which involved
safety, expectations and topics / departments that we would be covering. I got told how to carry out each job. I got praised all of the time.
In my work experience I dealt with communications with both the public and team members. I also dealt with finance, front of house, documents and house appearance.
It was such a fun week. I learnt a lot and had amazing company. I was looked after well. I strongly advise you do your work experience here!
