project assistant / assistant director, RADA. d/l 05 September 2019

Project Assistant/ Assistant Director, Annualised fix term contract £6,385 per annum

Through our widening participation and outreach work, we create opportunities for young people to experience RADA training and develop the skills, knowledge and understanding to access higher education.

The RADA Youth Company: Acting is a year-long project that gives young people aged 16-20 the opportunity to experience actor training and perform on RADA's main stage.

This is a new role and a fantastic opportunity to join RADA’s widening participation team which delivers a programme of activities to open up pathways into higher education for individuals from communities that are under-represented in the arts.

You will be working in two capacities alongside Phil Sheppard who is the director of the RADA Youth Company. For the first two terms you will work as Project Assistant supporting the director in running skills based workshops. Then in the final term you will work in the capacity of Assistant Director where you will assist the company (Theatre Production and Acting young people) in delivering their creative vision.

How to apply

RADA is particularly seeking disabled applicants or BAME applicants for this role. This reflects priority areas for our widening participation activity and also people who are underrepresented on RADA staff at present.

unlimited traineeship, artsadmin. d/l 17 September 2019

The open call of the Unlimited Traineeship based at Artsadmin is now open. This is an opportunity for someone that identifies as disabled looking to develop their arts and cultural management skills. Project Manager Clara Giraud tells us more.

What is the job?

This is a traineeship, and while it involves learning on the job and taking on a range of responsibilities, it is aimed at someone that might be new or have little professional experience of the arts and cultural sector. The traineeship is a part time role of 3 days a week for a minimum of 10 months, based in East London, at Artsadmin’s Toynbee Studios. It is an opportunity to get stuck in to the delivery of Unlimited, running up to the culmination of a range of our commissions and the Southbank Centre’s Unlimited Festival 2020.

A history of traineeships

Artsadmin has been hosting paid traineeships for many years, and this format developed as part of Unlimited to transform the cultural sector and ensure disabled people are fully embedded and represented within it. This opportunity is ring-fenced for a disabled person, and we will support the selected applicant with access-to-work procedures and ensuring reasonable adjustments as required. A diverse range of individuals have joined us as Unlimited trainees over the years, you can watch interviews of them here (audio-described versions here), and read a blog of recent trainee James Greenhalgh.

How do I apply?

Artsadmin’s recruitment process is through an online application portal, and shortlisted applicants are invited to complete an interview and a task. You will find all of the information about the position, the role description, person specification, and key dates of the selection process on Artsadmin’s website, through this link. If you have any questions, experience any barriers through the application process, or require anything in another format, please contact Clara at clara@artsadmin.co.uk or on 020 7247 5102.
