The role: The Theatre Administrator plays a central role within the Drama and Theatre team at Harrow: involved broadly in the delivery of an ambitious programme of productions, courses, projects and events across the academic year. The post holder’s excellent organisation and communication skills are integral in the smooth running of departmental and production administration, as well as front of house management for performances. The Theatre Administrator manages a small team of cleaning and freelance staff, and liaises closely with other departments that support the theatre’s operational running, as well as a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.

The skills: This role is a great opportunity for an experienced administrator used to a fast-paced, collaborative workplace, and who would like to develop within a stimulating and creative environment. You will ideally have some experience working in a front line, public-facing role, with highly developed administrative skills so that you can manage multiple tasks and complex data. You will have a flair for providing a first-class customer service, with accomplished communication skills and a calm, welcoming demeanour. Experience of working within arts or education environment is desirable, but above all we are looking for a proactive, positive team player, who will relish the challenge of wide-ranging involvement with a dynamic and busy department.

The environment: Harrow School is situated within a beautiful site in Harrow on the Hill, northwest London, and is one of the

best-known schools in the world, with around 835 boys studying at Harrow. The School’s 300-seat Ryan Theatre is equipped to industry standard, and has a national reputation for its drama projects and community engagement.
