Association of British Orchestras

Freelance Touring & Technical Roles

Scottish Ensemble Daily rate of £135 (negotiable depending on experience) Closing date 19 July 2022
Scottish Ensemble is seeking individuals available to support our work on a project-by-project basis with technical and touring responsibilities. Successful candidates will be offered freelance contracts over the course of the next 12 months to support Scottish Ensemble as it goes on the road.

Scottish Ensemble is a professional string orchestra and we deliver approximately one project or tour every six-eight weeks, though some periods are much busier. To support our small passionate team, we are now looking to engage one or multiple individuals for freelance tour and technical support roles. Engaged on a project-by-project basis, these roles will support Scottish Ensemble’s Producer and Creative Learning Manager to deliver our key projects. The freelance contracts will include responsibilities for driving our tour vans and transport; load-ins and get-outs at venues; some stage management assistance; some Front-of-House assistance; and managing equipment hires and inventories. Candidates with AV experience would be especially welcome to support sound and lighting designers with whom we work to set up and run AV elements of our productions.

We are looking for positive, organised individuals who enjoy working as part of a team; are adaptable and pick up tasks quickly; and who have the technical or practical skills required to ensure a high-quality experience for the artists and audiences who experience our work. The first project that we are seeking support for would involve dates within 4-14 September 2022.
