GSA (Guildford School of Acting) is a long established and internationally renowned drama conservatoire, training technicians, performers and creative leaders for the theatre and performance industries.  We are a department of the University of Surrey, a leading UK and global university. The department of Technical Theatre Arts runs the long established BA Theatre Production and the new MA in 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. 

We are seeking a performing arts technician (video and digital) who will be integral to the smooth running of GSA's teaching and production activity.  The post holder will be expected to support students undertaking modules in screen and audio acting, video for performance and live production work involving projection design and live streaming. They will be expected to support wider public activity such as conferences and visiting companies. They will also manage the stock and maintenance of video and media equipment and will have a critical role in ensuring safe working practices in all GSA venues.

You will be an experienced technician, with excellent organisational and inter-personal skills and a very good level of technical knowledge in video for live performance and digital and media systems. You will hold a qualification from a recognised vocational course and/or relevant professional experience. Experience working with students or in a similar educational setting will be an advantage.

As a new colleague at GSA you will join a thriving theatre community, working with excellent colleagues and students.  If you would like an informal discussion about this post, please contact Jo Franklin (Head of Technical Theatre Arts) on
