Would you relish the opportunity to lead on the Health & Safety and management of the brand-new flagship campus of one of Britain’s leading performing arts institutions?

We’re looking for an experienced, enthusiastic Health & Safety and Building Manager to join our team, based at our brand-new flagship site in Woking. Our new campus opened its doors in September 2022. It comprises 24 stunning, state-of-the-art studios and our own in-house theatre.

With 550 students of Acting, Musical Theatre and Dance studying full-time on our diploma and degree programmes, our Saturday Associate School and community classes, we’re a hive of activity from dawn ‘til dusk during term-time. We love what we do, and that’s why it’s imperative that your conversance with Health & Safety law and building management is matched with experience or a keen interest in the theatre and performing arts.

We’re located within the Victoria Place development in central Woking. The role encompasses the full Health & Safety and Building Management remit including fire safety, supervising our backstage areas and construction of sets for productions, ensuring routine maintenance and risk assessments are carried out and that Italia Conti adheres to all statutory guidelines in the area of Health & Safety.

It’s an exciting role that presents a genuine opportunity to put your stamp on the institution and on our new site. If you’d relish the chance to join our committed, collegial, high-performing team we’d love to hear from you.

Flexibility is at our heart. By its nature, this role is site-based; however the part-time hours could be spread across the week to suit a candidate seeking a fulfilling role alongside childcare commitments.
