The Royal Opera House are looking for Casual Technicians to work in a number of their backstage areas.

The Technical Department maintains a list of individuals who may be offered work on a casual basis and we are currently looking to increase their number of casual Technical Crew with a Linbury and Events Bias.

Technical casuals are required to work effectively as part of a team, participating in all necessary technical work for a production from stores/workshops to rehearsal room, to stage rehearsal and performance, and return to stores, ensuring that all assigned activities associated are carried out to the highest possible standard of safety, efficiency and quality.

Applications are invited from those with prior stage theatrical experience. Ideally, we are looking for individuals with:

  • A proven track record in technical work for any theatre or repertory establishment.
  • Having good all round technical experience would be advantageous.
  • Excellent team work and communication skills.
  • Ability to follow instructions.
  • Self-motivated to acquire new skills and knowledge in technical theatre.
  • Positive attitude to health and safety.
  • You must be available to attend an induction and health and safety training session on 14 December 2016.

This process may be run a few times a year, depending on operational requirements. Should you not be able to attend an induction on 14 December 2016 we will not be able to accept your application at this time, however we invite you to apply for future casual opportunities which will be advertised on our website.

The Royal Opera House has to actively encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and value the positive impact that difference has on our teams.
