The Deputy Head of Technical Stage will work closely with the other specialist departments to ensure the efficient delivery, maintenance, operation and storage of resources and equipment across our sites and spaces.

This includes supervising and finding staff and crew for activities during fit-ups and get-outs as well as first line maintenance and upkeep of technical stage equipment and spaces. This will at times require you to work evenings, weekends and some unsociable hours. The role will operate stage and automation equipment on productions, as and when is required.

This role may lead on specific projects and productions involving work with professionals and non[1]professionals in our studio, main space or off-site engaging with the communities of Greater Manchester and will also recruit casual technical staff and contribute to training and development activities with trainee technicians, our Young Company, and others.

This would be a good role for an experienced technician looking to develop their production, technical management or specialist rigging, automation or fabrication skills. Training and development opportunities will be offered where appropriate.
