The Role

We are recruiting for a Technical & Production Assistant to support our very busy production department. We are looking for candidates who are good communicators, work well as part of a team, keep calm under pressure, and have a sense of humour.

While a background in technical theatre is desirable, we are able to provide training and support for candidates who show a keen interest in what we do and demonstrate potential to develop their skills through professional development opportunities. This is an entry level position, but we hope that the successful candidate continues to grow within the organisation and we will provide support in that regard.

We are very interested in hearing from Black, Asian, and Global Majority candidates, as well as candidates who identify as disabled. RADA is embarking on a journey to become an anti-racist institution and is committed to supporting candidates in their positions, ensuring that the workplace is safe and inclusive for all. If you require any support to be able to take part in the interview process, please let us know when you apply and we will ensure our interview process is accessible for you.

The Production and Technical Management department leads on productions from a technical and logistical point of view, supporting all other technical and creative departments through the production process. You will become a key member of the Production and Technical Management team, supporting RADA’s Head of Production and Technical Manager in the day-to-day workings of the department, as well as supporting teaching across Stagecraft, Technical Management and Production Management disciplines.
