part time Theatre Company Promotional Assistant

at Elton Townend Jones (Anywhere)

Are you outgoing, enthusiastic, and Edinburgh-based? We're a small but internationally-renowned, 5-star theatre company coming to the Fringe Festival for our ninth consecutive year in August 2017 – and we need you!

We need a team leader for our small but brilliant street team. Your duties will include scheduled/targeted promotional flyering, programme sales, backstage assistance (turnarounds) and chatting with the public, working in direct contact with your employers. As an ambassador for the company and its productions, you should be well-presented and well-organised (with the ability to organise others).

We'd need you from 2nd – 28th August inclusive (if you are unable to cover this period, then please do not apply) and will work usually between 10:30am – 5:30pm, with scheduled breaks.

You will be paid £150 per week for 3.5 weeks (£525 in total), plus 50% of all programmes sales on both shows, which usually adds another 50% on top. Other benefits include: an Assembly Company Pass (free entry into all 200 Assembly shows, on-site food/drink discounts, access to VIP bar) and a free and lavish company meal. Everyone that ever worked with us had a great time. And if you want to make connections in theatre we're happy to help.

We don't provide accommodation during the run, so to qualify, you'll already have access to a base in Edinburgh.

Who are we? We're Dyad Productions and our previous shows include: The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Dalloway, Female Gothic, I, Elizabeth, The Diaries of Adam and Eve and Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, which last year was the The List’s Top-Rated Drama at the Fringe. This year we’re presenting a new work based on The Time Machine and a limited returning run of our first ever production, Austen’s Women.

So come and have fun at the Fringe!

Applications are open until Wednesday 7th June with Skype interviews on Monday 12th June.
