Application Deadline: This is a rolling recruitment, with no fixed deadline. Applications will be shortlisted, and candidates interviewed until available positions are filled.

With a busy and varied programme of events to support, ranging from contemporary circus to opera to children’s and family theatre, our technical team is a vital part of the successful running of the theatre.

Our freelance technicians will play a vital role in assisting the technical manager with the fit out and preparation of the theatre in advance of our opening season.
