The New Theatre, Oxford is preparing to reopen in 2021 with a busy and varied programme of live music, comedy, dance and musicals. We're looking for our next Technical and Building Manager to join the team and help us welcome audiences back this summer.

Responsible for a permanent and casual team of technicians and maintenance staff, you'll ensure we offer the highest standards of technical support to hundreds of performances and events each year. Establishing great relationships with the touring companies visiting us is a key part of the role. You'll also be responsible for maintaining the building to a high standard and establishing a positive safety culture throughout the venue team. This is a varied role including a good mixture of both planning and management and practical technical work, in a dynamic and fast moving venue, right in the heart of the beautiful city of Oxford.

Please see our job description download for full details of the role and responsibilities, and please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the role. Previous technical experience in a live entertainment context is essential, but this does not have to be a theatre and we are keen to hear from candidates from a wide range of backgrounds. The role is offered on an annualised hours basis, with payment for 120 premium hours included in the salary.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and strive to provide a stage for everyone. Onstage and off, we hold ourselves accountable for nurturing an inclusive culture. Find out more about us and our values at and
