Assistant Maker, Theatre Royal Plymouth


TR2 Production and Learning Centre is the Theatre Royal Plymouth’s purpose built workshop facility based in Cattedown, Plymouth. Since opening in 2003, TR2 has provided state of the art workshop facilities for the creation of scenery, props and costumes for a global theatre industry.

TR2’s extensive engineering, timber fabrication and assembly facilities can support the simultaneous construction of two full-scale productions.  The workshop and its construction team are pivotal to this activity taking design concepts through to technical solutions.

The post holder will work as part of the workshop team in the realisation and production of theatre scenery. They will have a basic understanding of either carpentry or steel fabrication and will be able to work under direction from technical drawings as well as assistant makers and freelancers in more complicated builds.

As we continue to diversify beyond theatre scenery, exciting opportunities to work in exhibition and site-specific art installations are developing, requiring an enthused attitude to constructing work of a non-theatre nature.

The role will involve extensive collaboration with other workshop staff, draughtspersons and managers.  They will also need to have a pro-active approach to working hours and overtime.

Interviews will take place on regular basis throughout the advertisement period and a tour of the workshop will also be included.
