SHROPSHIRE’S resident touring theatre company Pentabus is looking for two new members of the team.

The company is recruiting for an administrator and a new head of engagement, as Andrew Sterry leaves after seven years with Pentabus.

The Head of Engagement will create and lead engagement projects that ensure the company’s artistic work is accessible and relevant.

They will also be responsible for ensuring the continuation of the existing Young Company and educational outreach programme, fostering a robust and inclusive relationship with new writing and theatre.

The role is a part time, three days a week, position with a pro-rata salary of £30,000. The administrator will support the team on all aspects of operations in a touring theatre company.

The ideal candidate, say Pentabus, will have excellent organisational and communication skills and be keen to learn about the business side of theatre.

This role is also three-days, with a pro-rate salary of £25,000.

Applications for both roles close at 12 noon on Monday, June 17, with interviews in the week starting July 1.

Both roles will involve working at or close to Pentabus’ offices at Ludlow Assembly Rooms. Successful candidates will join Pentabus during its 50th anniversary year, which began by winning an Off West End Award for The Silence and the Noise and continued with its recently announced flagship production MakeGood, a new musical about the Horizon Post Office Scandal, co-produced with New Perspectives. The anniversary year has also seen Pentabus move to Ludlow Assembly Rooms after 40 years in Bromfield.
