Workshop Manager

Job Description

This is an exciting time join Polka Theatre’s busy and ambitious team, in the role of Workshop Manager, supporting the Head of Production, in delivering the best possible service to Polka productions and projects, with responsibility for the construction, mounting, and rigging of the scenery. What would you be doing? You will manage the workshop spaces and the team onsite at the theatre and offsite at our Batsworth Road workshop space. You will have strong carpentry skills and be practical and hands-on, ensuring the workshop and production teams work smoothly and effectively together. Polka produces between 5 and 8 new in-house productions each year across its two theatre spaces. Around half of these are co-productions and partners have previously included Complicité, Little Angel Theatre, Royal and Derngate and The Royal Opera House. We undertake some touring and also receive companies to our Wimbledon home, although the majority of the year is presenting our home-produced work. Having our own workshop means we build all our own sets as well as sets for other theatre companies. The production team also facilitate various projects (including education activities and community and fundraising events) which take place in other areas of the building or at other venues.
