Join our Team!
We are currently recruiting a Production Manager
20 hours per week, expanded to 37.5 hours per week when working on rehearsal and production periods and whilst on tour (plan to tour Autumn 2021).
Salary: £24,969 pro rata
We are looking for a highly motivated and skilled individual to take on the role of Production Manager and join the Travelling Light team. The successful candidate must have a strong belief in the company’s mission to inspire young people through theatre.
The Production Manager is responsible for the safe and effective operation of the Travelling Light programme, which could include national and international touring, schools and rural touring, and technical support to participation and community projects.
Travelling Light’s programme of activity is evolving. During the coronavirus pandemic we have continued to create work for children and young people. New avenues for our storytelling have been explored over the past year, with the production of a storybook and digital work. We hope to continue to work creatively in these mediums alongside a return to touring to schools and venues and providing participative projects for young people.
In 2021-22 we plan to create two new productions, for an autumn schools tour and a winter venue run. We will also be developing our programme of community engagement, and R&D for future projects. The Production Manager will work closely with the company’s small staff team, providing technical expertise and logistic planning experience for the programme, both at home and out on tour.
