part time Backstage Assistant

at Elton Townend-Jones (Anywhere)

Enthusiastic, and Edinburgh-based and want free access to 300 Fringe shows?

We're a small, 5-star theatre company coming to the Fringe for our 11th year in August 2019 - and we need you to join our backstage team to help us with our show turnarounds (getting a small set in and out of the venue)!

Dates: 2nd – 26th August inclusive (please DON’T apply if ANY of these dates are no good) – with a technical session in which to familiarise yourself on 28th or 29th July, TBC (for about an hour).

Your duties will entail helping move set before/after the show at:



(an hour a day, in total)

This will be daily, with days off: 5th, 6th, 13th & 20th August (and a slightly longer second session on 26th to load the set from the venue into the van).

We need someone who can work under supervision, quickly and efficiently and lift reasonably heavy objects.

This is an UNPAID VOLUNTEER post, but in return we can give you: Company Pass (free entry into over 300 shows, on-site food/drink discounts, VIP bar access) and a free and lavish company meal.

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

Applications are open until 3rd July 2019 with Skype or phone interviews shortly after application.

Please enclose Skype handle and Phone no. in application email.

So, come and enjoy the Fringe!
