The Edge seeks a confident and highly experienced Youth Theatre practitioner to work with children aged 6 to 12 years (6-9 yrs 4pm to 5pm, 9-12yrs 5pm-6pm) on Mondays during term time.

This is a maternity cover post and the contract will run from Monday 29th October 2018 to Monday 1st April 2019 during term time only.

The Edge’s activities are designed to develop self-esteem and confidence, creativity and imagination in a safe and nurturing environment. There are no productions to work towards during this period so children can focus on having fun through structured activities: theatre games, improvisation and making new friends. Shortlisted applicants must be able to demonstrate an understanding of how children learn and flourish through theatre, their own skills in ‘classroom management’ and give examples of their practice .

Please send a CV and cover letter, detailing your experience and tell us why you want to work at The Edge to hannah@edgetheatre.co.uk

We look forward to hearing from you!
