Work for us – Edinburgh Fringe 2016

We are looking for exciting, interesting and hard-working team-players to join our technical, Box Office and Front of House teams for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016.

Note: All applicants must be aged 18 or over and be a UK/EEA citizen or hold a UK full work permit at the point of application.

Box Office & FOH Team

We are looking for Box Office & Front of House team members for the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2016! To find out more or to apply, please fill in our application form and email it to our Box Office team at karl@thespaceuk.com.

Technical Team

We’re after committed, enthusiastic and hardworking volunteers to work in our closely knit production team in Edinburgh throughout August.

If you have a working knowledge of technical theatre (whether it’s lighting, sound, stage management or any other aspect), an awareness of public and workplace safety and can interact with confidence with theatre companies and members of the public, you’re the kind of person we’re looking for. You’ll be working with our Venue Managers and Production Team to keep our thirteen theatres running technically and logistically, ensuring that we’re keeping everyone safe and helping to make the festival an enjoyable experience for our visiting companies and audiences.

The position is voluntary but you will receive a living allowance that is designed to cover the costs of living in Edinburgh for the festival. You will need to find your own accommodation, or already be living in Edinburgh. It would be advantageous if you can bring basic tools and safety footwear.

Our Festival runs from Friday 29th July to Monday 29th August 2016, and you’ll need to be available for the duration. During this time you will be given time off to enjoy the festival, but do be prepared for some long days in between, especially set up and rehearsal days. You will also get free entry to any of our shows, discounts at our bars and above all a fantastic opportunity to experience the festival and all it has to offer!

Applicants must be aged 18 or over and be a UK/EEA citizen or hold a UK full work permit at the point of application.

If you’re interested, please email us with your CV. Make sure you include any relevant theatre experience (including any amateur/voluntary work) and any experience you have of working with the public. If you have any relevant qualifications or training (e.g. first aid) this should be mentioned too. Please e-mail our crew chief at crewchief@thespaceuk.com.
