A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join this theatrical design and production company and take the lead in running their 14,000 sq. ft. workshop and yard production space. This family-run business produce and deliver a diverse range of sets and props for events, product launches, exhibitions, sampling campaigns and experiential marketing projects with high levels of customer service and quality finishes. Their in-house services include event design and production, project management, spray finishing, sewing and costume, operations, logistics and storage.
As the Workshop Manager you will be responsible for the full end-to-end production build for all projects – taking the lead on production builds from brief through to delivery. With man management experience, you will also oversee a sub-contract production team which can vary in size from 1 to 20, depending on each project. Maintaining and organising the workshop space, woodstore, outside yard and storage containers will also be part of your remit. They also love dogs and have a special dog crèche on site.
Ideally from a theatrical or exhibition background you’ll have experience in the production of a broad range of sets, props joinery and modular units. An understanding of the ever changing demands of high-end brands is essential and knowledge of CAD software (AutoCAD / SketchUp) would be an advantage. Strong leadership and the ability to work under pressure is needed and qualifications or experience in health and safety compliance and buildings maintenance would be an added benefit but is not essential. You’ll possess a friendly, respectful and accommodating personality in order to suit the culture of this company.
Salary is £30,000 + pension. If this vacancy sounds of interest please contact Pippa Baker on 01920 486125 for further details, or simply forward your application and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
