The Epsom Playhouse, situated in Epsom town centre, is a receiving house comprising a 450-seat main auditorium and an 80-seat studio.
We are seeking a multi-skilled and experienced individual to provide technical services to ensure the successful presentation of a wide programme of professional and community performances. You will be responsible for rigging, operating, and de-rigging, lighting, sound, stage and AV equipment for rehearsals and performances, duty stage management, simple maintenance of equipment, and supervision of casual staff, visiting companies and community users.
This is a great opportunity for a highly organised individual, with a proven track record of having worked in a theatre environment. You will have knowledge of computerised lighting programming and operation, and sound patching and digital sound desk operation and conducting soundchecks for live music and other one-night events. Good verbal communication skills are required as you will be communicating with professional companies and community hirers. You must also be able to demonstrate your ability to work effectively as part of a busy and committed team.
Flexibility is vital as you will be required to work evenings, weekends, and bank holidays. You must also have your own transport as you will be required to work late when public transport is not available.
In return you will benefit from 24 days annual leave (rising to 29 after 5 years’ service), subsidised gym membership and car parking, payment of professional fees, entitlement to join the local government pension scheme, and non-contributory life assurance.
The Playhouse is managed by Epsom & Ewell Borough Council. We aspire to deliver high quality services to our residents. We might be small, but we have big plans to serve our population of 80,000 residents. We are investing in our future, increasing strategic capacity, and exploring new ways of working.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a professional and committed team and we look forward to receiving your application. For further details please go to www.epsom-ewell.gov.uk/careers or contact Simon Banks on 01372 728887
