This is a fantastic opportunity for a young person aged 18-24, with little or no experience of working in theatre production.
The candidate will work across various departments, learning about every aspect of theatre production, as well as our work as an educational youth charity. During their time in the role candidates will have the chance to specialise in areas where they show particular interest or ability.
The Production Assistant will particularly support the Producer in their work, to ensure the delivery of BYMT's main artistic programme, including up to 10 new theatre productions and residential skills courses. The role also involves internal administrative tasks, working with other departments.
Quote from previous BYMT Production Assistant 2023:
"I have learned an enormous amount of new skills and practical abilities that I truly don't think I'd have found elsewhere. I now have a far more comprehensive understanding of the role of a producer thanks to our producer's brilliant and open way of teaching on the job. My time at BYMT has opened up new directions which my career could now follow; I feel confident in my own abilities and have a lot less career anxiety than I did before joining the team here."
Previous BYMT Production Assistants have go on to work at the Globe Theatre and in TV production services.
