Job description

We are looking for a Technical Director to lead our Production Team

Whether on our stages at our home on The Cut, touring to schools and community centres across South London, premiering a play in the West End or on Broadway, streaming our work across the country and around the world – the Young Vic is actively working to be a theatre for everyone.

The Technical Director position is a vital leadership role within the Young Vic. The purpose of the Technical Department is to deliver all the technical elements of the Young Vic’s programme – this includes our productions, projects and events, in the main house, studios, digital ‘stages’, and across the creative engagement and talent development departments. The Technical department builds strong relationships with freelance and in-house creative teams and other artistic personnel to deliver their creative vision within the agreed timescales and budgets, to the highest possible standards. The Technical department also upholds an inclusive, collaborative culture, committed to our journey towards becoming an actively anti-racist organisation; and will champion sustainable practice and the delivery of productions to Green Book standards.

We actively encourage people from a variety of backgrounds with different experiences, skills and stories to join us and influence and develop our working practice. We are particularly keen to hear from Black and Global Majority people, and candidates who self-identify as disabled. All candidates who self-identify as disabled who demonstrate that they meet the essential criteria will be invited for interview. The Young Vic is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, caring responsibilities, disability, gender, gender identity, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
