Festival Stage Crew

We are currently looking to appoint Festival Stage Crew for the Traverse Festival period in August.

Responsible for the get-ins, fit-ups, turnarounds and get-outs of all of productions and events at the Traverse Theatre.

As a team, the Crew will be responsible for the smooth turnarounds of all scenic aspects of the productions in both theatres (Traverse 1 and Traverse 2) and events in the rest of the building including, but not limited to, anything from dance floors, flats, flown scenery and revolves to stage decks, furniture and props.

These are very physical roles with a fair amount of lifting and carrying. A working knowledge of theatre is essential as is the ability to work under pressure. Please note: these are non-technical roles and are within the Stage department of the theatre.

The crew will be made up of a team of 9 people who will report to the Crew Chief and ultimately the Head of Stage.

The working week will be 48 hours with one day off per week. Any additional hours will be paid at single time. Positions will run from 29  July to 27August 2017. This role is not suitable for anyone with other commitments during these periods.

Candidates must be able to supply documentary evidence of their eligibility to work in the UK along with any necessary work permits/visas.
