part time Theatre Company Promo Assistant/Team Liaison

at Elton Townend Jones/Dyad Productions (Anywhere)

Outgoing, enthusiastic, and 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, some 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 ALL 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 on top of your wage. All previous assistants have left with approx. £1k and a lot of good stories.

Other benefits: Company Pass (free entry into over 300 shows, on-site food/drink discounts, access to VIP bar), participants pass (should you wish, allowing access to development courses in theatre business, etc) and company meal – on us – our big slap-up night out.

Everyone that ever worked with us had a great time. And if you want to make connections in theatre we're happy to help where we can.

We don't provide accommodation, so you need already to have an Edinburgh base. If you do not have an Edinburgh base or access to the city on a daily basis, then please DO NOT apply.

We're Dyad Productions 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/phone interviews to quickly follow application.

Please enclose Skype handle and phone number in application email.
