The Royal Shakespeare Company produces Shakespeare’s plays in context, alongside the work of his contemporaries and today’s writers. The company’s Literary Department commissions and develops new plays, adaptations and translations to produce on all of the company’s stages.
About the role: The Literary Projects Co-ordinator is the first point of contact for writers and artists working with the company to create new work. The role requires precise administrative skill, office management and a thorough knowledge and keen interest in both contemporary and classical theatre making. You will not only be responsible for the day to day administrative running of the Literary Department, but also project manage the research and development of new scripts, organising workshops, readings and liaising closely with writers, actors, directors and designers in the process.
You will read and format scripts for rehearsal, monitor new work and emerging talent throughout the UK and work closely with the Marketing team to contribute material both for print and our online profile.
The salary for this vacancy is £24,000.
Requirements: While first-rate, precise organisational and administrative skills are vital, you should have sound experience of working with theatre makers – gained either in production or project management. You’ll also need a self-motivated and enthusiastic approach, not to mention a real passion for theatre.
How to apply: Full details about the post and how to apply can be found on their website.
Deadline: 10 June 2016
