Production Technician (Automation Bias)


Edited: Jan 16


The Royal Academy of Music is a stimulating and friendly environment with a diverse mix of students and staff from over 50 countries. Based in central London adjacent to Regent’s Park, we have been training musicians to the highest professional standards since our foundation in 1822. Many of the world’s leading musicians and performers studied with us and we are firmly focussed on developing tomorrow’s musical leaders in a number of disciplines including classical, jazz and musical theatre.


We are looking for a Production Technician to be the primary automation programmer and operator for academy and visiting company productions and to assist the technical production team as necessary across a wide range of technical disciplines and shows including full-scale Opera and Musical Theatre Productions.


This is an exciting role based in the Academy’s new state of the art theatre and is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic individual who wishes to further their technical career.


Your duties will include being the Academy’s primary automation operator as well as participating in the construction of sets, props and sound systems and ensuring all technical works for a production meet with the Royal Academy of Music’s safety standards.


You will have broad experience of all Technical Theatre disciplines and ideally experience of working in an educational theatre environment, together with the ability to work independently and on your own initiative.
