Well Worn Theatre Company is Hiring.

Well Worn Theatre is about to embark on delivering a 2010 Climate Change Action Programme and Play to 150 Gauteng Primary Schools. And we can’t do it alone. We are looking for an Assistant Project Coordinator to join us for the ride.

These are the position details:

  • Starting on the 1st April 2010 with a 17 month contract or on completion of 150 schools, whichever comes first.
  • Part time. Hours are negotiable but will definitely have to include most mornings (school hours).
  • R4 500 per month to start, rising after a 3 month probationary period.
  • Based in Westdene, Jo’burg. Working from our home office. A very informal and relaxed environment. Lots of coffee, lots of laughing, lots of hard work.
  • Duties will include: confirming and coordinating school bookings and meetings, drawing up actor’s schedules, contacting interested schools, keeping records of school’s visited and contact details of teachers, checking and answering emails, calls and faxes.

Our perfect candidate would be:

  • Super organised and efficient
  • Able to multi-task. I.e. handle many duties concurrently such as scheduling, calling, emailing and keeping records
  • Computer literate. Just the basics like Word Documents and Excel and emailing. Your own laptop would be ideal too.
  • Vivacious and friendly. You will be our point of contact for teachers and schools and so need to have a warm and welcoming manner.
  • Able to get to Westdene (near UJ) easily every day and also able to occasionally run errands (own car is therefore preferable)
  • Great English writing and speaking skills.
  • Flexible about working hours, they may change according to the tasks at hand (but always daytime, no nights).
  • Passionate about Theatre, Climate Change, Education or, if we’re lucky, all three together :-)
  • Ready to get stuck in immediately and take the initiative on all tasks rather than wait to be told what to do and how to do it.

This position will suit someone who is looking for a friendly and relaxed but also dynamic and busy working environment. Someone who is looking to become part of a small but extremely passionate theatre company with big and bold plans for a juicy future for South Africa. A creative, warm-hearted spirit with a solid, unshakeable work ethic, that’s really what we’re after here…

Could that be you? Or someone you know in Jo’burg? Have a look at www.wellworn.org.za and if our tone and style and work ethic strike a chord deep within you, get in touch! Write us a letter saying why you think you would be good for the job and what relevant experience you may have. Do it soon. We are very much looking forward to reading it.

Looking forward to finding you, meeting you and working with you on this amazing project together.

Warm wishes,

Kyla Davis
Artistic Director

  1. I’m first time visitor to your website after I got the details on notice board- Hillbrow Theatre. I must say I have never felt this closer to the people I hardly know! This the kind of website that makes me feel like printing out every page and hang them on my wall at home, but then again one has to save the environment. I would love to be part of this eccentric team of creatives!
