Description

If you have a passion for lighting design and are keen to experience life, working at a busy co-education boarding school, then becoming a Graduate Assistant at Marlborough College could be for you.

The Graduate Assistant - Lighting Designer-in-Residence provides essential support to the production of a diverse range of theatre projects across our three performance spaces. This post will appeal to those who are keen to gain experience and develop their designing skills, sharing their passion and enthusiasm with young people, whilst working as part of a team in a stimulating and well equipped environment.

A Graduate (or recognised alternative) with a specialism directly relevant to lighting design/program development, you will be energetic, enthusiastic, have a natural rapport with young people as well as a genuine interest in, and commitment to, their care and development.

Joining us for an academic year (starting September 2024) you will be immersed in the life of a busy boarding school with a salary package that includes single accommodation and all meals during term-time, but more importantly offers a fantastic opportunity and fulfilling experience working within our cohort of Graduate assistants.

The nature of our production team requires a Graduate who can offer a wide range of skills; whilst we would not expect all these areas of expertise, we would be interested to hear from graduates who could offer support in one or more of these areas.

  • Lighting Design
  • AV Design and support
  • Programming (ETC Ion)
  • IT skills (Microsoft and Apple)
  • Set Design and construction (assistance where required)
  • Sound Design
  • Advanced/experienced in QLab programming and operation (AV)
