Drawing Office Coordinator

Full time, around 40 hours per week
Stratford-upon-Avon

The RSC are looking for a Drawing Office Coordinator to join our small and creative team based at our workshops in Stratford-upon-Avon.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to put their organisational and teamworking skills to use, coordinating freelance draughtspersons and ensuring that conceptual designs meet reality in our RSC productions.

What does this role involve? In this position you will:

  • Implement and maintain our new data management system
  • Input 3D and 2D CAD data from freelance draughtspersons
  • Coordinate freelance draughtspersons, briefing them on RSC standards and show specific information, alongside other team members
  • Create ground plans, elevations and storage plans
  • Structure the drawing delivery process for each project
  • Be a point of contact for staff in the workshop to check dimensions and re print drawings.

This position is key to the efficient running of the Drawing Office, so we are looking for someone who:

  • Works collaboratively, supporting and assisting designers, draughtsmen and workshop staff
  • Has excellent communication and IT skills
  • Is able to take the initiative
  • Has excellent time management skills and can work to deadlines
  • Has knowledge of, or interest in, CAD and construction techniques
  • It would be an advantage if you have knowledge of Autodesk AutoCAD, Inventor or Vault.

To be suitable for this role you will ideally have worked with CAD software, or alternatively have experience working in a theatre organisation in a management or organisational capacity. You should also be flexible, adapting schedules as they change.

We are looking for someone who is the right fit within a great team so if you haven't worked with specific CAD software types before we would be willing to train and develop the right person.

This is a full-time role based in Stratford-upon-Avon. Your average working hours are expected to be 40 per week. Some flexibility will be required when installing productions.

All applications should be submitted by midnight on 6 May 2019, using the RSC website. If you need any assistance when applying, please contact the Recruitment Team.

We are committed to building a diverse workforce and welcome applications from all individuals.
