Edinburgh Fringe 2022 - General Technicians

General Technicians – Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022

Fixed Term Contract: 31st July – 30th August 2022

Underbelly are looking for General Technicians for our small to medium-scale venues at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022.

Job Purpose

Our technical team are the backbone of venues, setting up and operating all the equipment for our performance spaces, looking after all of our visiting companies, and keeping the place running. The team build the venues, look after the companies and shows for their technical rehearsal as well as their get-ins and outs of the spaces at show time.

To be a part of the team you should have some skills with sound and lighting equipment although you will not necessarily be required to operate every show. Our venues range from the simple to the complex, so a spectrum of skill levels can apply.

The technical team are also responsible for the cleanliness of the performance space and work closely with Front of House in getting audiences in and out and keeping the venues running to time in a busy performance schedule. You will always sit in on the show, whether operating or not, to respond to any technical or audience situation that may develop during the performance. You should be friendly, good with people, be organised and able to communicate confidently, and be a part of the crew that makes the Fringe happen. Part of being a venue tech is also to be part of the get-in and get-out crew in setting up the venues so a great team work ethic is essential.


Dates of work are approximately 31st July – 30th August 2022.

Rate of pay is £9.90/hr.  You will be working on a rota with other technicians. You will get a minimum of 2 days off but should be available to work for the entire period.

We are an equal opportunity employer and welcome applications from all sectors of the community. We expect employees to support these commitments and to assist in their realisation.

We regret that we will only be able to reply to shortlisted candidates.
