Job Role:

Zoo Co are looking for an organised, proactive and kind Company Support Worker to join the rehearsal process of our upcoming remount of Perfect Show For Rachel. 

 

The Company Support Worker will be responsible for supporting the various access needs in the rehearsal room. These include 1 learning disabled artist who will be joined by 2 full time carers, multiple neurodiverse artists, some of whom have their own assistants, and BSL interpreters booked every day to support communication between the deaf and hearing team. Zoo Co’s Access department will advise on best access practice for the room, which the CSW should ensure is carried out, whilst also reacting proactively to any new/developing access needs arising in the room. The CSW plays a key role in the successful development of the show. 

 

CSW duties include:

● Proactively supporting the company’s access requirements and having a keen eye on the

rehearsal room in case anyone's access needs aren't being met

● Being a point of contact for the company to support with lateness, absence etc

● Being available to support anyone in a crisis

● Managing access clashes if they arise

● Collaborating with other members of the Zoo Co team as necessary to ensure the successful delivery of the access plan and production, including liaising with the Stage Manager to ensure breaks are strictly adhered to

● Maintaining positive relationships with Zoo Co colleagues and project partners and advocating for access requirements in the venues we are working in

● Complying with company policies at all times, including but not limited to Equal Opportunities, GDPR, Confidentiality and Health & Safety, and Safeguarding

● Any other duties reasonably required

 

We’d love to hear from you if: 

  • You can take lead in a new environment

  • You have experience of holding space for multiple access needs at any one time 

  • You have experience working in a deaf / hearing space where BSL is being used

  • You are organised, with great time management skills

 

A DBS check is required for the role. (Zoo Co operate under an understanding of the Rehabilitation of Offenders regulations.)

 

In the rehearsal rooms there will also be individual support workers funded by Access To Work, BSL interpreters, and full time carers for Rachel, director of the show who is learning disabled and lives in a care home. 

Terms:

The fee is £2850.
