The Traverse Theatre is currently looking to appoint a Festival Stage Supervisor from 15 July 2019 for the duration of the Festival
The crew will be made up of a team of 9 people who will report to the Stage Supervisor and ultimately the Head of Stage.
The Festival Stage Supervisor is responsible for allocation of crew during fit ups and turnarounds, making sure crew get appropriate breaks, keeping records of turnaround duties and deputising for the Head of Stage in their absence.
Along with the crew they are responsible for the get-ins, fit-ups, turnarounds and get-outs of all 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) including, but not limited to, anything from dance floors, flats, flown scenery and revolves to stage decks, furniture and props. The team are also responsible for setting up events and performances in the rest of the building and in external venues as required.

The working week will be 48 hours with one day off per week. Any additional hours will be paid at single time. The role will run from 15 July to 25 August 2019. This role is not suitable for anyone with other festival commitments.
