Technical Director
Eleven Arches
Salary: Competitive Salary & Benefits
Job location: Bishop Auckland, UK
Eleven Arches, the production company behind ‘Kynren – an epic tale of England’, the spectacular open-air live action show in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, is looking for a highly experienced and talented Technical Director to join the team as the show moves into its third season and we embark on our next exciting chapter.

Kynren is the UK’s biggest live production since London 2012 and is presented on a 7½ acre stage of land and water with a cast and crew of 1,000 professionally trained volunteers. Kynren was created with world-renowned Puy du Fou (winner of the prestigious Applause Award and the Thea Classic Award) as our artistic partner.  The next leg of our incredible journey is to follow Puy du Fou’s steps with the development of a new daytime theme park.

THE ROLE:

The role offers the successful candidate the opportunity to be involved in an inspiring, ambitious and unique project, working in a fast-moving, unpredictable, high-octane environment that accompanies the production of a world-class show. Reporting to the C.E.O., you will work at a strategic and operational level to design, plan and oversee the construction of new attractions as well as leading and delivering the technical operations of the show and site.

The Technical Director sets up, directs and runs Kynren with a passionate team that includes volunteers and a small team of employed Technicians. As we plan future shows, they will be run by a team of paid Technicians as part of season-long operations outside of Kynren nights.

You will be called upon to deal with a wide range of technical issues and will have a strong working knowledge of techniques, methods and procedures of show production gained in a visitor attraction, theatrical or outside broadcast environment.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

As a strong, “hands-on” leader you will:
- Work with the Senior Management Team to plan and develop our next phase of development
- Plan and deliver all technical requirements and resources needed on the site and stage area necessary for the Show or other performances including lighting, sound, staging and any other requirements
- Advise production staff, lighting and sound designers on the technical specifications, costs and usage of technical equipment required for each show and supervise the implementation of approved technical designs
- Plan and deliver training - ensuring that our volunteers involved in the Technical team have an extraordinary experience with Eleven Arches, all the while ensuring the professional quality of our show
- Monitor and swiftly resolve technical issues both on the show and for all the site
- Own of the technical yearly budget; scope business cases for Capital & Operational Expenditure whilst ensuring procurement best practice

ABOUT YOU:

- A strategic thinker with a ‘can-do’ attitude to delivery, you will be happy to get your hands dirty.
- An effective leader and team player, you will have experience of managing and motivating individuals to deliver to their full potential.
- With a proven track record in a similar role, you will have the ability to make informed decisions with confidence and will lead capital projects including the specification, planning and delivery of technical infrastructure.
- You will have strong “hands-on” knowledge of Electrical, Hydraulic, Lighting, Sound, Video and other systems.  

FURTHER OPPORTUNITIES:

We would also love to hear from you if you are a Technician seeking your next opportunity. These positions are for an immediate start with our season running for 17 dates during the summer.

Various permanent and fixed term positions are available.
