Jerwood Resident Designer & Board Opportunity 

We are currently looking for our next Resident Designer and Trustees to join our board. 

Jerwood Resident Designer 

Leeds Playhouse and Tutti Frutti are looking for a Jerwood Resident Designer to join us full time for one year from 8 July 2024 to 4 July 2025.

This is a role which will provide a wide-ranging opportunity to be part of the creative life of a large-scale building-based theatre organisation as well as to spend time with a small-scale touring theatre company. This is a unique opportunity for a locally rooted designer to work in a supportive environment surrounded by a wealth of expertise; to grow, build invaluable relationships across a range of departments, develop skills, create work at a larger scale than they have before, learn from highly experienced designers, and contribute to the development of the next generation of designers and technicians.

You will be a Set & Costume Designer in the early stages of your career. You will be imaginative, passionate about visual storytelling, and a good collaborator.

This is a full-time, fixed-term contract of 35 hours per week. Whilst normal working hours will be Monday to Friday 9:30am-5:30pm, this role will require flexibility with some evening and weekend work required. Pay for the role is £21,000 per year, with model making and show seeing expenses also provided.
