The Royal Opera House is looking to appoint a Scenic Metal Work Apprentice.
(Fixed term contract for 3 years from September 2012)
As part of our innovative scheme to provide apprenticeships in backstage areas of the Royal Opera House and thanks to the generous support of The Headley Trust, we are looking to appoint a Scenic Metal Work Apprentice. The apprentice will be based at our purpose built, state-of-the-art workshop facility in Purfleet, Essex. The production team at the workshop is responsible for building and refurbishing scenery for the Royal Opera and Royal Ballet companies and Birmingham Royal Ballet.
The three year apprenticeship will combine time at the workshop with time spent at Prospects College, Basildon where the apprentice will study for an Advanced Apprenticeship in Fabrication and Welding. The apprentice will spend the majority of their time at the workshop with one day a week at college. There is also the opportunity to spend time in the scenic workshops of another venue in the third year of the apprenticeship. The apprentice will be assigned a mentor for the three years who will support them in achieving their full potential.
The successful applicant will be paid the national minimum wage relevant to their age. The apprentice’s college fees will also be paid by the Royal Opera House.
Closing date: 10am, Thursday, 5 July 2012
Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend a tour of the Royal Opera House on 10 July 2012. Interviews will take place in Purfleet on 11 July 2012.
