We are seeking an enthusiastic drama graduate with the knowledge and skills to assist the full-time drama department staff with the day-to-day running of both curricular and co-curricular drama provision for the academic year. 

You will assist the Department, directing 3 productions per year and supporting with the Edinburgh trip as well as assisting with other productions, supporting rehearsals and helping prepare pupils for GCSE and A level exams. 

With a degree-level qualification in a drama-based subject at 2:1 or above (or equivalent experience), the right candidate will possess excellent knowledge of drama and drama education, as well as experience of developing and directing productions and a demonstrable basic knowledge of technical theatre (e.g., lighting, sound etc.).

Last year our Director in Residence ran a Verbatim Theatre Residency over two school holidays, which toured to a local theatre. It is vital that the appointed person has a keen interest in establishing new and exciting projects at the school and we are particularly interested in candidates who have clear ideas for adding to our provision. 

If you are an excellent and enthusiastic role model, who wants to inspire and pass on your theatre skills and expertise to the next generation, we would love to hear from you.
