Head of Sound

Deadline for applications: Monday 11 December, 12pm
Salary: £35,000 - £37,000 per annum dependent on experience

The Head of Sound will join the core technical team at the Bridge for the duration of the run of Guys &
Dolls. The role will encompass managing all aspects of the Bridge Theatre’s sound and communication
systems, sound staff, the building infrastructure, and taking a leading role as required in the day-to-day
operational management of the technical department and theatre alongside the other HODs.

The candidate will join a small team of full-time staff, working collaboratively with all members of the
team in achieving the smooth delivery of the production and rehearsals, as well as other projects and
events at the Bridge Theatre.

The Head of Sound is the only full-time member of staff for the Sound Department, all other staff are
contracted as required. Most of the sound and communications system used for Guys and Dolls at
the Bridge is hired. This has allowed us to offer incoming designers and productions a blank slate to
design what they feel best for their show. This approach has been key to the ongoing success of the
department, and underpins LTC’s approach to show-making. A large part of the role is managing all
these stakeholders and relationships, and building a strong team for the production to realise and
maintain the designer’s aspirations.

The role requires a thorough knowledge of managing a top class musical theatre sound department,
with a strong practical knowledge of current and emerging sound technologies, managing long term
relationships with hire stores, and the hiring and retention of key production freelance staff.
