The University of Surrey is a global university with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward-thinking, its heritage shows a recurring theme of going its own way, doing things differently – and achieving notable results.

Guildford School of Acting (GSA) is situated within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and is one of the UK’s leading conservatoires for specialised and intensive vocational training and innovative performance research.

Established in 1935, GSA enjoys national and international renown as a leading conservatoire for performer training. We are arguably the world’s leading centre of excellence for musical theatre training. The School has a diverse and vibrant community of performers, performance makers, creative practitioners and technicians graduating from its vocational training and research-led programmes each year. The department of Technical Theatre Arts runs the BA Theatre Production programme and the MA Stage & Production Management, as well as supporting the production aspects of all other courses within the GSA portfolio, research activity and a large variety of other events. Providing an excellent student experience is central to all we do. Within this role you will primarily lead the Design Realisation pathway on the BA programme.

We are seeking a dynamic theatre practitioner, who will contribute to the ongoing development of vocational learning, practice and scholarship at GSA. You will have specialist skills in design realisation (for example design, scenic construction, scenic art or prop-making) for performance, (minimum of five years in professional practice) ideally in both freelance and in-house positions. You will have advanced knowledge of relevant and current practices and techniques in design and realisation for theatre and performance. Knowledge and experience of relevant technical drawing packages is desirable. You will have excellent administrative and IT skills as well as pastoral ability. Teaching experience (preferably in a drama school environment) is desirable.
