Job description

Harlow Playhouse is recruiting a Lighting Technician to be part of the technical team assisting in the backstage responsibilities of running this lively venue. The emphasis of this role is towards all aspects of Lighting to support our varied programme.

Responsible to the Technical Manager, duties will include maintaining backstage areas and equipment, operating lighting and sound, liaising with incoming companies and organisations, assisting get-ins and get-outs and the smooth running of performances. This is a key role in the venue and a great opportunity for candidates to work in a creative and diverse presenting house with a wide-ranging programme.

Knowledge of technical theatre is required for this role and the ideal candidate will have experience programming EOS family consoles and be able to rig, cable and focus lanterns. Harlow Playhouse prides itself on delivering a high standard of technical support to our productions, to achieve this, we invest in our employee’s training, development and nurturing of skills.

If you are a dynamic team player, here is your opportunity to play an important role at Harlow Playhouse. Applicants should be willing to expand their practical and theoretical skills across all areas of technical operation.

Why This Opportunity Stands Out:

• Innovative Projects: The successful candidate would work collaboratively with myself and the Technical Manager on a capital investment overhaul of our theatrical lighting stock and infrastructure.
• Professional Growth: This role offers the opportunity to design, rig and programme lighting using the latest ETC EOS Family consoles.
• Long Term opportunity: Harlow Playhouse will also undergo major developments over the next few years with the progression of the levelling-fund development plans that directly positively impact the expansion and development of Playhouse square. The vision for the square is to create an arts and cultural quarter with a diverse range of artistic, entertainment, cultural and heritage disciplines to establish a regional hub of innovative events.
• Collaborative Environment: Harlow Playhouse values a culture of collaboration and innovation, providing a stimulating environment where employees can affect real development and change in the organisation.
• Networking: The position offers extensive networking opportunities with professionals in the industry.
• Competitive Benefits: We offer a comprehensive benefits package including generous annual leave of 29 to 32 days plus bank holidays for Grade 7, an Employee Assistance Programme providing help and support to employees who may be going through a difficult time, option to enrol in the Local Government Pension Scheme, and an employee benefits scheme with various discounts and cash back schemes at a range of national retailers as well as local businesses.
