Head Of Production (part time)

Deadline for applications: 11 March 2019

Job Specification

This is a new position; an opportunity to forge a key role as a central part of the creative team. We are looking for a dynamic freelancer who enjoys the creative and logistical challenges of making theatre, is happy collaborating within the team as well as solving problems independently. Working alongside the Artistic Directors this role involves feeding in ideas, provocations and solutions from the very beginning of the creation process. 

 

Tangled Feet produces several shows each year at a range of scales and it is anticipated that the Head of Production would feed into all our shows from planning to delivery. There are a number of responsibilities that are ongoing throughout the year. As productions are planned and mounted, the responsibilities and time commitments vary. 

 

Structure of the role

This is a new role created to work alongside the core team and there is some flexibility as to how the role is structured. We would welcome applications from people who feel they would be an asset to Tangled Feet in this role and have suggestions for alternative ways to structure it. 

 

Initially the role is offered at 1 day a week at £165/day, to be worked flexibly. 

  • 12-month contract subject to review at 3 months 

  • Total Fee £8,550

  • Start date to be negotiated

 

In addition to this role the Head of Production would be offered the Lead Technical Role on most of the projects throughout the year, on a freelance basis at the same rate as the rest of the creative team (£165 daily rate, and for production periods and rehearsals a minimum of £550/wk/£110 a day). This could be another 12-16 weeks of the year. 

 

There is the expectation that the HoP would meet in person or remotely with the ADs at least once a fortnight. The core TF team all work part time and flexibly in London and Luton, and currently the core TF team meet most Wednesdays in London.

 

There is the strong possibility that the Head of Production role will expand subject to funding.

A Manifesto for supporting emerging ensembles. What we are doing - and what else can be done.

Lyn Gardner's column in the Stage last week (We Will Face A Crisis If Early Career Artists Aren't Supported) posed some urgent questions about how we support early career artists. Are we - as a company, and an industry, doing enough?
