SO YOU WANT TO work with us

SAVVY is looking to expand our pool of freelance artists and is hosting a 3-day training event that is open to anyone keen to work with us in the future. 


We are looking for early-mid career artists who:

  • want to further develop their skills as a facilitator and/or director 

  • are keen to learn more about SAVVY's inclusive pedagogy  


You must have a proven interest and some experience in facilitating and/or directing.

During the training event you will:

  • Practically explore SAVVY Theatre's inclusive methodology of working with people who have a variety of communication difficulties, disabilities and young people with SEMH needs.

  • Learn how we co-create and shape our shows to encourage ownership of the work and raise to ambitious levels of professionalism with community casts.

  • Have the opportunity to work alongside our Core Team as part of our weekly programme.

You can send us:

  • a video (no longer than 4 minutes)

  • an audio recording (no longer than 4 minutes)

  • a written application (no longer than 2 pages)

  • a presentation ... or whatever method suits you


Whichever way you choose to apply, we’d like you to answer these two questions in your application:

  • Why you would like to join us at SAVVY?

  • What skills or experience you have and/or would like to develop?


Please email your application to us by 5pm on Friday 17th December 2021




Places are limited and we will inform everyone on whether they have been accepted by Friday 14th January 2022. 


If successful, we will ask for a copy of your current DBS and we may ask for references.


You will be paid a fee of £50 per/day for taking part in the training days, to cover general expenses.
