Casual Work - Technical Crew with a Stage and Stage Props bias

The Technical Department maintains a list of individuals who may be offered work as stage crew on a casual basis. Applications are invited from those with prior stage theatrical experience for inclusion on that list. There is a competitive recruitment selection process for inclusion onto the list. This process may be run a few times a year, depending on operational requirements. Those whose names are added to the list will be required to attend an induction and health and safety training session.

Inclusion on the list of stage casuals is no guarantee that work will be offered, individuals are at liberty to decline any offers of work which are made. Those who are included on the list of stage casuals will be subject to ongoing assessment on the basis of: their availability for work, reliability, work ethic/commitment, skills development, attention to detail, attitude to safety and fit into the team.

Job role:

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.
