Job Specification
The Technical Department at the Theatre Royal Plymouth are looking for a new Technical Apprentice. 
There is nothing like the feeling of a live audience watching a show you are working on. If you enjoy variety, creativity and problem solving then being a theatre technician can be the most enjoyable job in the world. A theatre technician helps to bring the directors ideas to life and creates the special effects that make a show memorable. It is the job of the technician to ensure that all the lighting, sound, scene changes and special effects happen safely and calmly, so the actors are confident working in front of an audience. There may also be an opportunity for additional work within the Technical Department. 
The closing date for applications is midnight on 11th August 2019 and interviews will be held on 20th August 2019. 
The Role 
Working with the Lighting, Sound and Stage Departments (all part of the Technical Department), you will learn about and understand the role of a Technician within the Performing Arts industry whilst getting hands on experience.  You will learn the practical skills necessary to work as a Technician in a theatrical environment, and have the opportunity to work with top industry professionals in all of the Theatre Royal Plymouth’s performance spaces. 
The apprenticeship will be split between the Theatre Royal Plymouth and the City College Plymouth
