OPERATIONS ASSISTANT (Paid, Part-Time Position)

The Operations Assistant is a new role at Theatre503, created as part of our funding from the Arts Council’s Catalyst: Evolve. We are looking for someone who is passionate about theatre, and in particular new writing, who is keen to gain experience in arts administration or looking to return to work on a part time basis.

You will be supporting the Operations Manager in ensuring that Theatre503 is a safe and welcoming space for audiences and artists alike, as well as the administration of the building and front of house operations.

Please see the full role description here: OPERATIONSASSISTANTROLE.

To apply, please send your CV and a Cover Letter (as separate Word 97-2003 or PDF formatted attachments, please) outlining your suitability for the role, along with our 503 EQUALITY MONITORING FORM to roles@theatre503.com by 12noon on Friday 27th April. 


Engage with a local arts organisation. Gain experience and boost your CV. See a fantastic programme of plays for free (and for every four week production run, get a free ticket for a friend too). There are many benefits to volunteering as part of our Front of House team.

Team members generally work a minimum of two shows per month over a four month period, but it’s entirely up to you how often and for how long you volunteer. After completing three FoH shifts, we offer training on our Box Office system (Spektrix).

Shifts start at 2.15pm for matinees or 6.45pm for evening performances. Duties include: welcoming patrons to the theatre; opening up the house and managing the seating of audience; sitting in on the show in case of any disturbances; some light cleaning duties and glass collection after the performance. All volunteers need to be aged 18 years and over, and you’ll be asked to shadow one of our current team members on your first shift.

To get involved, please send details of your general availability (e.g. every second Wednesday) to volunteer@theatre503.com.
