Maternity cover to 31 July 2021 (post available now)

The role
This position provides maternity cover for our Admissions Manager. The Admissions Manager runs RADA’s admissions systems. From 2020-21 this means online applications for all our higher education courses and the first round of auditions will take place digitally, with applicants submitting self-tapes.

The person
We need someone who is tech-savvy and able to prioritise their work. You’ll be good at organising people and events, like working with people and be enthusiastic about helping the next generation of potential RADA students. You need to be able to work with little supervision in managing the admissions process. You should also be fully and completely committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and show this through everything that you do and how you work to make RADA an inclusive and diverse place for staff and students.

The department
You will be part of the Student and Academic Services department at RADA, working in the Admissions and Student Services team. The department supports all aspects of higher education students’ experience of RADA. This includes general programme administration, all aspects of student support, including wellbeing and counselling, admissions, quality assurance and governance.

About RADA
The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) is a world-leading training centre in acting and theatre production disciplines, inspiring students to experience the transformative possibilities of stage and screen. As award-winners and leaders in their fields - as actors, directors, writers, producers, lighting, sound and costume designers, prop makers, scenic artists, stage managers and production managers - our diverse student and graduate body make a significant contribution to the creative industries globally.

We especially encourage applications from people who identify as disabled and/or identify as black, Asian or are from minority ethnic backgrounds within the UK as these groups are under-represented at all levels in the RADA staff.
