Theatre and Music Technician
Our Performing Arts Section delivers UAL courses in Drama, Dance and Music across levels 1, 2, 3 and 4. The department has a professional standard studio theatre equipped with theatre lighting and sound equipment, two purpose built dance studios and a music department with state of the art recording studios and two Mac Labs.
We are seeking to appoint a full time Technician with experience in overseeing both Theatre and Music to join our vibrant performing arts department. Working alongside students, you will need experience in rigging and operating lighting and sound for music, acting and dance performances at industry level, using an Allen and Heath QU-24 sound mixer and an FLX S48 lighting controller. You will have experience of prop making and set building. Throughout the year, you will maintain the upkeep of equipment and will therefore need to have a thorough understanding of health and safety requirements. You will also be responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of all music equipment and facilities, so knowledge of working with Macs and Logic Pro X is essential, as well as instrument maintenance and repair.
You would also guide students in the use of technology and support our broad performance programme. You should possess a relevant level qualification/experience and have up to date working knowledge of theatre lighting, sound, music technology, recording techniques and current software. You should also have excellent communication skills, be flexible and have enthusiasm for working with young people in a fast-paced, creative environment.
We are extremely busy at various points of the year, so flexibility and vigilance are key characteristics for the successful applicant. All our shows include evening performances.
