full time Street Team Manager - Berk's Nest

at Berk's Nest (Anywhere)

Berk's Nest is a live comedy production company, behind shows like Rose Matafeo's Horndog (Best Show Winner, 2018), Richard Gadd's Monkey See Monkey Do (Best Show Winner, 2016), and tonnes of other exciting shows from the likes of Kieran Hodgson, Tessa Coates, Olga Koch, and Emma Sidi. This year we're producing another roster of hilarious and innovative shows from a bunch of exciting comics - and we're looking for a team who can help make these shows happen.

Our Street Team Manager is responsible for overseeing the entire flyering team (usually around 10-14 people), and delivering brilliant audience numbers. You'll make sure that everyone is happy & not overworked, and that all our acts are getting the audiences that they deserve. You’ll issue rotas, train up the team, and keep everything moving towards sold out shows.

You'll have a couple of years experience flyering in Edinburgh, and knowledge of how shows, venues, and audiences work at the Fringe. You'll have some experience of managing a team (at the Fringe or in another environment), and be full of thoughts about how to best support your team whilst getting the best out of them. Crucially, you'll also love live comedy, and the sorts of shows that we work on.

Role details:
- Responsible to: Managing Director, Owen Donovan
- Responsible for: Street Team
- Pay: £1,500
- Accommodation provided in centrally located flat (living with the rest of the core team)
- Dates: July 27th - August 27th. Some work will be required in advance of the festival, namely a call with our previous STM, and speaking (either in person or via phone) to all of our acts to put together an initial flyering plan, but this is flexible around you.
- Hours: Flexible - as long as the work gets done and sales aren't awful, we're more than happy for you to decide exactly how you use your time. The Fringe is an unusual workplace with no set hours, and we have shows running for about 8 hours of the day, but we want our team to enjoy themselves, see shows that they want to see, and have their own time to relax and get away from it all.
- Benefits: Venue passes for Pleasance & Assembly, tickets to shows, merchandise & anything else we can get our hands on.
