Work For Us

Duty Manager

stage@leeds are now recruiting for our 2020/21 team of Duty Managers. If you are interested in theatre, looking for a part-time job and committed to studying at the University Leeds during the 2020/21 academic year, then you could be just who we are looking for.

stage@leeds works with professional companies, new and developing artists, and of course our student body to provide two full seasons of exciting performances per year. We also manage a suite of rehearsal spaces. Our Duty Managers are an essential part of the stage@leeds team. They work across several buildings on campus to ensure the smooth running of the stage@leeds theatre spaces and associated rehearsal rooms.  This is an excellent opportunity for anyone with an interest in how theatres run to get some hands on experience. You will gain a wealth of skills and experience which will enhance your future job prospects: previous Duty Managers have gone on to work for a range of arts organisations after graduating.

We need people who are strong communicators as this is a very public facing role.  You’ll need to be confident dealing with a variety of people in addition to having some cash handling experience.  You’ll be responsible for leading a team of volunteers for performance nights, so some supervisory/leadership experience is also be required.

Skills You’ll Learn

  • Flexibility and Adaptability
  • Initiative
  • Interpersonal Skills
  • Problem Solving
  • Working independently
  • Event Management
