Welfare Host
(Host with the Most)

 

Tin Shed Theatre Co. are seeking a personable and enthusiastic welfare host to support the production team whilst on location for 'Rocket Launch Blaenavon'.
Due to the adverse differences with working in outdoor arts, we would like to appoint a team member who can ensure the wider production team and community members are happy and comfortable with their working conditions. Duties will include:
Ensuring the team has refreshments for breaks.
Liaising with catering at the relevant times to ensure food service is on time.
Keeping work areas clean & organised. With a particular focus on sanitation and cleanliness.

The host will need to be comfortable working in a dynamic outdoor environment. Good organisation skills, personality and initiative are key to ensure everyone has an enjoyable time on location. You will work closely with the Company Stage Manager to deliver these tasks. We will have Skill Share roles available for people from the town, so sensitivity to their backgrounds is necessary. As well as ensuring they are not doing more than is asked of them.


We are looking for someone available full time to cover these weeks:
23rd August - 27th August (5 days)
20th September - 26th September (7 days)

We are able to offer £500 per week to cover this time.
