full time Theatre Company Promotional Assistant

at Elton Townend Jones/Dyad Productions (Anywhere)

Outgoing, enthusiastic, Edinburgh-based and want access to the Fringe?

We're a small, unfunded but internationally-renowned, 5-star theatre company coming to the Fringe Festival for our tenth consecutive year in August 2018 – and we’d like to work with you!

We need a leader for our brilliant street team for about 4-5 hours a day. Your duties will include scheduled/targeted promotional flyering, programme sales, backstage assistance, chatting with the public.

We'd need you from 2nd – 27th August inclusive – with a meet-and-greet on August 1st – (if you can’t cover ANY of the dates in this period, then please DON'T apply) and will work between 11 am – 6pm approx., with scheduled breaks.

You’ll be paid £150 per week for 3.5 weeks (£525 in total), plus 50% of all programmes sales on both shows – usually about £250-£500 on top of your wage. In the last 10 years, every one of our Assistants has left with around £1k.

Other benefits: Company Pass (free entry into over 300 shows, on-site food/drink discounts, access to VIP bar) and 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, so you need already to have an Edinburgh base. (Please DO NOT apply if you do not have a base in Edinburgh or easy access to and from the city)

We're Dyad Productions - check out our website before applying - and our previous shows include: Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Austen’s Women, The Time Machine, Dalloway, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, Female Gothic, I, Elizabeth, and The Diaries of Adam and Eve. This year we’re presenting our tenth fun new show: Orlando.

So come and enjoy the Fringe!

Applications are open until Wednesday 11th July with Skype interviews shortly after application.

Please include Skype handle and Phone No. in application message.
